About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The plague of Athens, which hapned [sic] in the second year of the Peloponnesian War. First described in Greek by Thucydides; then in Latin by Lucretius . by Sprat, Thomas..

Description:

English verse rendition of the second book of Thucydides, based on the translation by Thomas Hobbes; the plague's symptoms are poetically described in all their horrific agony. This is a later edition, with the first having been printed in 1659; several issues appeared over the years under various Brome imprints (including Henry Brome and Joanna Brome). Sprat, bishop of Rochester and dean of Westminster, now retains more of a reputation for his prose than for his poetry, but Dryden thought enough of the present piece to include it in his miscellany. 8vo (18.3 cm, 7.2"). [3] ff., 34 pp. ESTC N11495; Foxon S663; NCBEL, II, 485. On Sprat, see: The Dictionary of National Biography, LIII, 419?23. Uncut copy. Removed from a nonce volume, with sewing mostly gone, now in a Mylar folder. Some age-toning and spotting ranging from mild to moderate. Bookseller Inventory #
