Heathcote William Garrod, comp. (1878–1960).  The Oxford Book of Latin Verse.  1912.
 
His Book’s proper Place
 
Luxorius (circa 500 A.D.)
 
 
PARVVS nobilium cum liber ad domos
  pomposique fori scrinia publica
cinctus multifido ueneris agmine,
nostri defugiens pauperiem laris,
quo dudum modico sordidus angulo        5
squalebas, tineis iam prope debitus,
si te despiciet turba legentium
inter Romulidas et Tyrias manus,
isto pro exesequiis claudere disticho:
contentos propriis esse decet focis,        10
quos laudis facile est inuidiam pati.
