About this Item: Charles Rivington, London, 1760. Hardcover. Condition: Good Plus. Attractive rebound edition of this set. Tree leather boards, beautiful yet worn. Respining solid and flexible - yet only maybe "fair" shelf-looking - from the original gilt decorated leather spine, with much repair. Some loss at heads and tails of spines, with new gilt black leather labels reading "HOMER'S ILIAD" and " Vol. I" (etc.) for each volume. Corners moderately bumped. Attractive marbled endpapers complete and unmarked to all volumes. Signature to the second free endpaper of volume one, followed by note "Papa gave me these books 1805'". Old ink signatures to the rest of the volumes, most to the tops of title pages. No frontispiece to volume one or foldout maps, but attractive engraved head and tail vignettes throughout the volumes. Pages moderately toned but little to no foxing. A finely satisfying 18th century book production, of a classic both of antiquity and English translation, ready to extend its history and influence onward. About 5.5 x 8.4 in (14 x 21.5 cm).

Condition: internally Fine but for small (16x8mm) inked ownership stamps to the front pastedowns and the title pages, the morocco with a sprinkling of grey spotting to the boards most notably to the lower cover of the Iliad, the backstrip of the Odyssey moderately and the Iliad slightly less toned, somewhat unevenly at the feet - overall Very Good with some pages of both volumes still unopened, in Good (shelf wear, a few chips but no loss) slipcases.

About this Item: London W. Bowyer; Henry Lintot 1720; 1745, 1745. 11 volumes in six. A complete set of the very scarce FIRST "POCKET" or SMALLER FORMAT EDITION and second edition overall of Pope’s great translation of Homer's Iliad and Odyssey. Finely engraved plates, titles, head and tail pieces, portraits and maps throughout all the volumes. Fine, heraldic ownership plates of Bolton in each volume. 8vo, handsome later antique half-calf over marbled boards, the spines with raised bands gilt stippled, the compartments with central gilt ornamental devices and red morocco lettering labels gilt, red edges. A very handsome set, fresh and clean. VERY SCARCE. A FINE SET IN ANTIQUE CALF GILT. ENGRAVED ILLUSTRATIONS AND PLATES THROUGHOUT. It has been justifiably claimed that Pope's translation is inaccurate due to his reliance on the sense of the texts of Chapman, Hobbes, Ogilby, Dacier and others--but "others have produced translations; Pope's work is a poem" (CHEL, IX, p. 84). Its fame and longevity are due more to Pope's desire to keep the spirit and fire of the epic alive than any obligation to render Homer in academic exactitude. HOMER'S ILIADS AND ODYSSEYS ARE STILL CONSIDERED THE MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL WORKS IN ALL OF GREEK CLASSICAL LITERATURE, AND THE WELLSPRING OF ALL SUBSEQUENT LITERATURE. The primacy of Homer's OPERA, particularly the ILIAD and ODYSSEY, cannot be overstated. "The ILIAD and ODYSSEY are the first perfect poetry of the western world. They spring fully grown, their predecessors lost, and their magic has persisted ever since. The legends of the siege of Troy and the return of Odysseus are the common heritage of all. The beauty of Helen, the courage of Hector, the grief of Achilles for Patroclus, the meeting of Nausicaa and Odysseus, the magic of Circe, all these are now a part of the mythology of Europe. It matters not whether they were first written or handed down orally, whehter both are by the same poet, whether the poet was Homer--all these and many other unanswered questions are secondary to the perennial appeal of the narrative and the poetry. The form, the action and the words have had incalculable influence on the form, action and words of poetry ever since; the composition of the AENEID, the DIVINE COMEDY, PARADISE LOST, and many others, has been determined by the ILIAD and the ODYSSEY" (PMM).
