Item Description: London: Bernard Lintot, 1715–26, 1715. 2 works together, 11 volumes, quarto (220 × 278 mm). Handsomely bound for James Brydges, first duke of Chandos, in contemporary red morocco, spines lettered in gilt, gilt raised bands and compartments, boards panelled in gilt, marbled endpapers, decorative gilt rolls to board-edges and turn-ins, gilt edges. Some skilful restoration to extremities; a little water staining at head to early leaves of Iliad, v.1; ink stain to early leaves of Iliad, v.2, chiefly affecting edges; short tear without loss to upper outer corner of sig. 5N1 (Iliad, v.3) just touching the page numeral only; two conjugate leaves in Iliad v.6 (sigs. 10B1 and 10B4, recte 10X1 and 10X4) extended at head without affecting text (presumably a print shop accident repaired before binding); tear at foot of sig. K2 of Odyssey, v.2, without loss; faint water marking to last leaves of Odyssey, v.5; occasional minor foxing, spotting, or offsetting elsewhere; but a handsome copy of the subscribers edition in a luxury binding. Iliad: engraved frontispiece portrait of Homer by Vertue, folding map, folding view; without the Shield of Achilles plate, often lacking. Odyssey: a different engraved frontispiece portrait of Homer by Vertue. Pictorial headpiece and opening initial to each book. First edition, one of 750 quarto sets for subscribers (there were also copies issued one month later in both large paper and small folio format) of one of the most important publications of its era, notable for establishing Pope as probably the first true professional poet in English. The particular method of publication by subscription in episodic annual volumes was innovative, allowing Bernard Lintot to use profits generated from one volume to finance printing of the next. Pope signed a contract for his new verse translation of Homer's Iliad with Lintot on 23 March 1714, a contract which specified that Lintot could not sell other copies until one month after the poet's 750 special subscribers' copies had been delivered. By presenting the poem in quarto, rather than the folios of Chaucer, Jonson, and Shakespeare, Pope's Homer introduced a new format for canonical literature into English publishing, following the pattern established in France around the middle of the seventeenth century. Pope's third large-scale enterprise, his edition of Shakespeare, completed in 1725, would appear in the same format. This set has the ownership inscription on the first front free endpaper verso dated 1745 of Lady Caroline Brydges, daughter of the second Duke of Chandos, whose father, the first duke, subscribed for ten sets, below the inscription of her mother, née Cassandra Willoughby (1670–1735), recording it as the gift of "my Dear Lord". Lady Caroline Brydges in turn received the set shortly after her father inherited the Chandos titles in August 1744. The pastedowns bear the armorial bookplates (over marks of removed bookplates) of her husband James Leigh (1724–1774) of Adlestrop, Gloucestershire, whom she married on 10 March 1755. The Chandos connection is interesting. James Brydges, the first duke, known to his contemporaries as "The Apollo of the Arts", was a noted patron of, among others, the composer Handel. Pope was subsequently much embarrassed when his Epistle to Burlington, published on 14 December 1731, was falsely alleged to satirize the duke's vast house, Cannons, where Handel had lived and composed for two years. Hogarth caricatured Pope splattering Chandos's carriage and the poet was forced to apologise. Pope's poem had prophesied the demolition of Timon's villa: on inheriting Cannons, the second duke found the family finances so encumbered by the costs of building it that he had it pulled down. The translation of the Iliad took Pope "six years, and at first 'I wished any body would hang me', he told Spence; he was 'under great pain and apprehensions' over it and 'dreamed often of being engaged in a long journey and that I should never get to the end of it' (Spence, 197, 193) Pope ear.

Item Description: Brescia: Baptista Farfengum impensa vero d. Francisci Lavini, 1497. small dampmark to upper margin in second half, some other minor spotting, a neatly reinforced wormhole to lower corner of first three leaves, frequent marginal annotations and occasional manicules in an early hand (occasionally just shaved at top or bottom), upper corner of one leaf torn and repaired (through the edge of two lines of text, no loss), ff. [90], folio (295 x 203mm), modern terracotta morocco, spine lettered in gilt, very good The second edition of Lorenzo Valla’s Latin prose translation of the Iliad - the first printed Latin translation - and only the third edition of anything resembling the full text of the Iliad to be printed in any language, following the 1474 first Valla edition and the 1488 Greek editio princeps. (There had otherwise only been numerous editions of the epitome known as the ‘Ilias Latina’, and Nicolaus de Valle’s 1474 translation of excerpts into Latin verse.) Valla (1407-1485) had produced his translation in the early 1440s, working without a Greek lexicon and hence producing a loose translation in (naturally, for a humanist of his era) Ciceronian style. He seemed to be succeeding where other scholars and poets had failed or refused to try - a number of false starts and commissions had borne no fruit earlier in the fifteenth century - but in fact only finished the first sixteen books, before passing the remaining eight to his student, Francesco Griffolini, who completed them in 1458 (see Sowerby, ‘Early Humanist Failure with Homer I-II’, IJCT, IV.1-2).This crisp and amply margined copy of the second edition was closely read by an early owner, who has added frequent short marginal notes - none more than a few words but with at least a few in the margin of most pages. Many of these simply extract key words, especially proper names, but others go further, including occasional commentary or additional information, a number of substantial lists of heroes (some with familial relations added), and one or two references to other writers, including Ovid.

Item Description: Bernard Lintot 1725-26., London, 1725. First editions of Alexander Pope's monumental illustrated translations of Homer's Iliad and Odyssey. Quarto, Subscribers edition. 11 volumes, uniformly bound in contemporary calf, with gilt titles to the spine and corner ornaments, rebacked to style in brown calf, raised bands. The bookplate in each volume of Sir John C. Hobhouse. John Cam Hobhouse (1786-1869), was Lord Byron's close friend, literary confidante and executor. Frontispiece portrait in first volume of each work, engraved title vignette in second, folding map and folding view of the Siege of Troy, engraved head and tail pieces, decorated initials. Moderate foxing, tanning and offsetting in first four volumes of The Iliad, which is often encountered. The Odyssey, apart from some occasional marginal dusting, is generally crisp and fresh. Laid in is a one page a.n.s., undated, to Hobhouse, endeavoring to arrange a meeting, signatory illegible. The subscribers list for the Iliad lists 575 subscribers, including Addison, Congreve, Newton, Steele and others; that for The Odyssey are 610 (including those in the supplementary list appended to the final volume). For the Odyssey, Pope was assisted by Elijah Fenton and William Broome, and pencil notes in the texts identify the responsible party for the specific Books and Notes. That those pencil annotations and incidental others in pencil in the same hand scattered elsewhere are Hobhouse's seems probable, as a pencil note in a quite similar (or same) hand appears at the conclusion of the Postscript to the final volume (14 Dec. 1843 J.H.), suggesting either the date of his acquisition of the set, or more likely, his completion of reading. Editions in folio (large and small) to benefit the publisher followed the appearance of each new volume in a timely fashion, the proceeds from Subscriber's quarto edition having been Pope's exclusively.

Item Description: London Printed for Nathaniell Butter [1616], 1616. 2 volumes in one. The Rare and True First Edition of the two books, issued together here. This copy highly unusual in that it retains the original ILIADS title page, and with preliminary blank as called for. Engraved general title-page and engraved title by William Hole, portrait of Chapman on verso, engraved dedication to Prince Henry. Folio, in a very handsome binding of full antique calf, spine elaborately gilt in six compartments, one with a red morocco label lettered in gilt. A fine, unwashed copy in antique binding with the spine refurbished to style, unpressed and unwashed, the text complete including the full 1611 ILIADS and the complete ODYSSEYS. A VERY RARE AND COMPLETE COPY OF THIS GREAT TEXT WITH THE THE FIRST EDITION ILIAD TITLE RETAINED, RARE THUS. The final and most complete state of "Chapman’s Homer." It took Chapman 25 years to finish his master translation, meanwhile it was published in segments as he completed them. Seven books of the ILIADS (1-2 and 7-11) first appear in quarto in 1598, then books 1-12 in folio in 1609, and finally all 24 in 1611. Books 1-12 of the ODYSSES were first printed in c.1614 and then reissued with books 13-24 in 1615. Homer’s hymns and verses were separately published, c.1624 as was the BATRACHOMYOMACHIA. As the translation progressed, these works were also published together, so the ILIADS could be found alone, with the first 12 books of the ODYSSES, with the complete ODYSSES and finally with the ILIADS, ODYSSES and CROWNE of minor poems all together. Almost all copies of Chapman’s Homer that include the CROWNE, were issued with the c.1634 second edition of the Illiad, printed by Thomas Harper for Nathanial Butter (earlier printings for Butter,Field and Jaggard had run out). As the various components were put together, the title pages for the individual works were eliminated (though in some copies one or more of these may have been retained), and in the final form the CROWNE’s was also eliminated for continuity. On First Looking Into Chapman's HomerMuch have I travell'd in the realms of gold, And many goodly states and kingdoms seen; Round many western islands have I beenWhich bards in fealty to Apollo hold.Oft of one wide expanse had I been told That deep-brow'd Homer ruled as his demesne; Yet never did I breathe its pure sereneTill I heard Chapman speak out loud and bold.Then felt I like some watcher of the skies When a new planet swims into his ken;Or like stout Cortez, when with eagle eyes He star'd at the Pacific - and all his men Look'd at each other with a wild surmise -Silent, upon a peak in Darien. -- John Keats Copies of this highly important work, unwashed AND un-pressed have become rare on in the marketplace.

Item Description: Apud Martinum Iuuenem, Parisiis, 1550. Hardcover. Edited by Helius Eobanus Hessus. The Abbey Copy of a Very DecorativeParisian Binding Done for Thomas Wotton. 121 x 89 mm (4 3/4 x 3 1/2"). 797, [1] pp. Edited by Helius Eobanus Hessus. BEAUTIFUL AND ANIMATED CONTEMPORARY ELABORATELY GILT AND PAINTED PARISIAN CALF BY THE BINDER OF WOTTON GROUP I, covers with unusual frame of interlacing slender rectangular compartments formed by wide black painted fillets outlined in gilt, center panel with four foliate scrolls arched across the frame in each quadrant and forming a centerpiece lozenge, azured curls at head and foot of the panel, and with stippled lobes, additional azured cornerpieces, stippled circles at top, bottom, and either side of the panel; raised bands, spine compartments gilt with centered foliate tool or bull's-eye, slightly later red morocco label, all edges gilt, spine ends and corners very artfully renewed. In a fleece-lined brown buckram clamshell case, with J. R. Abbey's morocco bookplate on front, and large morocco title label on spine. Front endpaper with morocco bookplate of John Roland Abbey. Pastedowns with armorial bookplates of Scrope Berdmore, S. T. P. (dated 1790) at front, and of Henry C. Compton Esq. at rear. Rear endpaper with modern bookplate of Philosophia Hermetica. Ruled in red throughout. Adams H-785; Hoffman II, 334; Schweiger I, 163; Hobson ("English Bindings in the Library of J. R. Abbey") 11 (for the binding). A half dozen light ink stains, two or three affecting a few words of text, but quite clean and fresh internally. Backstrip with minor flaking and a few hairline cracks, one corner exposed, otherwise THE VERY DECORATIVE BINDING PLEASING AND ESPECIALLY WELL PRESERVED, the boards still lustrous. This admired translation of Homer into Latin heroic verse comes in a fine example of a Grolieresque binding, almost certainly owned by Thomas Wotton (1521-87) of Boughton Malherbe in Kent, one of the most important early English collectors of historically interesting bindings, and later by J. R. Abbey and other distinguished bibliophiles. Wotton was famous for his books and his hospitality, playing host to Queen Elizabeth, among many other worthies. He preferred book collecting and his country estate to a public career, and refused the queen's offer of knighthood. The present binding is in the style of those executed for the famous French bibliophile Jean Grolier (1479-1565), and it was precisely this style that was favored by Wotton, who admired Grolier so much that he adopted the Frenchman's motto. According to the research of H. M. Nixon and Mirjam Foot, Wotton's elaborately tooled bindings were produced by four French workshops. Foot in "The Henry Davis Gift," suggests that the 1550 date of our Homer, the fact that Wotton's motto and arms are not present here, and the tools used all suggest that this is the work of Wotton's binder B. Her Plate II.11 (Volume I, p. 141) pictures a binding that is so similar to ours that it seems certain that the two had to have been products of the same atelier. The Latin translation here is by Helius Eobanus Hessus (1488-1540), a German poet, professor, and scholar who was the center of the humanist circle at Erfurt. His Latin verses were considered the best of his time in Germany, and his translation of the Psalms into elegiac couplets ran to 40 editions. This translation of Homer into Latin hexameters was first printed in 1540 and was admired for its Vergilian cadences. This copy was owned by a distinguished line of collectors after Wotton: Scrope Berdmore of Merton College, Oxford; Henry C. Compton of Lyndhurst; H. B. Wheatley (on Quaritch's honor roll of bibliophiles--the book being lot 16 in Wheatley's sale at Sotheby's on 8 April 1918); Lt. Colonel W. E. Moss (his sale at Sotheby's, 2 March 1937, lot 821); J. R. Abbey, and J. R. Ritman (his sale at Sotheby's, 5 Dec 2001, lot 114, with a hammer price of £3,400 [about $4,900]). Of this later bibliophilic lineage, Abbey's name stands out. The most ambitious and successful English book collect. Bookseller Inventory # ST12370m

Item Description: Printed by W. Bowyer, for Bernard Lintott, 1715 - 1720, London:, 1715. Illustrated with plates & maps. Pope, one of the leading literary figures of early 18th C England, enjoyed social success as well, and could count among his friends such great literary figures as Swift, Gay, and Congreve and 'saw much aristocratic society.' Of his character, the D.N.B. comments 'there is, in fact, no more difficult subject for biography, especially in a compressed form. The truest statement seems to be that he was at bottom, as he represents himself in the epistle to Arbuthnot, a man of really fine nature, affectionate, generous, and independent; unfortunately, the better nature was perverted by the morbid vanity and excessive irritability which led him into his multitudinous subterfuges.' It has been commented that Pope could Ôhardly drink tea without a stratagem.Õ His devotion to literature was unremitting, 'he might have rivalled Chaucer in one century, and Wordsworth in another. As it was, his poetry is the essence of the first half of the eighteenth century.' "Idolatry of classical models was an essential part of the religion of men of letters of the day. Many of them, however, could not read Greek, and the old translations of Chapman, Ogilby, and Hobbes were old-fashioned or feeble in style. Many translations from the classics had been executed by Dryden and his school. But a Homer in modern English was still wanting. Pope's rising fame and his familiarity with the literary and social leaders made him the man for the opportunity. However, the translation must be considered not as a publisher's speculation, but as a kind of national commission given by the elegant society of the time to their representative poet. The first volume, including the first four books of the 'Iliad,' was issued in June 1715. The next three volumes appeared in 1716, 1717, and 1718, the last volume of the 'Iliad,' delayed by ill-health, family troubles, and the preparation of various indexes, appeared in May 1720." Label to vol. 6 chipped. Some wear to spines, and joints tender though bindings overall sound & quite appealing. Minor worming to margins of vols. 1, 3, 5 & 6. Some gatherings a little browned, as often found. Short tear to Vol II ffep. Period pos to front eps. Withal, a Very Good set.

Item Description: 1795. HOMER. The Iliad of Homer. Translated from the Greek by Alexander Pope, esq. 484 pp. Small 8vo., 170 x 100 mm, bound in full contemporary speckled calf, with gilt-stamped red morocco spine label, in a rececent half brown morocco box. Philadelphia: J Crukshank, 1795. First American Edition. An exceptional copy of the first printing of Homer in America, with an early provenance.

His signature appears on the front fly-leaf, title-page and first page, along with his bookplate on the front paste-down. Though not a strictly accurate version of the original, Pope's translation of Homer's Iliad and Odyssey is now considered "one of the great poems of the age" (Harvey). William Cullen Bryant places Pope's translation among "the finest verses ever written." A fine, unsophisticated copy. Evans 28852. Bookseller Inventory # 154348

Item Description: Ex Officina Elzeviriana [House of Elzevir], Amstelodami [Amsterdam], 1656. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Two volumes of Homer, each page displaying the Greek text with the Latin translation to the right and the ancient Greek commentaries (scholia) printed beneath. Edited by Cornelis Schrevel (1608-1664), a Dutch physician and scholar, the head of the college faculty at Leiden in 1642. This set was at one point owned by the Royal College of Physicians, London, as their bookplate is on the front pastedown of both volumes with a tidy "withdrawn" stamp beneath. Printed at the Elzevir Press, a renowned family of Dutch printers of the 17th and 18th centuries. ***DESCRIPTION: Brown leather binding with a narrow double-ruled border in gilt on the front and back boards, gilt lettering on the spines, all edges in old gilt (the top edge has been darkened with age) plain endpapers, engraved title page in Volume I of Ulysses flanked by two soldiers, title page in Volume II has the device of the Elzevirs of Amsterdam, a figure of Minerva with an owl, shield and olive tree, and the motto "Ne extra oleas", and which also specifies the publisher as being Ludovici Elzevir. Volume I is comprised of 16 pages of the engraved title, Dedication and Preface pages, plus 716 pages of text and Volume II is comprised of 536 pages of text plus an Index of 44 pages. ***CONDITION: Overall very good, this set has been rebacked at some point as the leather spine is later than the leather boards and the endpapers are more recent than the text block, some restoration work was also recently done by a professional conservationist. Internally both volumes are clean, the text is clear and there is only scattered foxing. Prior owner markings from the Royal College of Physicians include, in both volumes, a bookplate on the front pastedown, a withdrawn stamp immediately below that, and a circular stamp in red ink on the title pages. In addition, there is a very old name written in ink at the bottom of the title pages. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.
