[Martial] Martialis, Marcus Valerius: (Farnaby, Thomas, ed.:) Epigrammata. Amsterdami: apud Joannem Jonssonium, 1645. 12mo., pp. [xii], 456. Woodcut device to title-page. Slightly foxed throughout, occasional light spots and smudges. Slightly later vellum, gilt title within border to spine, all edges coloured red. Vellum a litlte greyed with a few smudgy marks, some pencilled numbers to front endpapers. A good, sound copy. Thomas Farnaby (1574/5–1647) was a celebrated schoolteacher and grammarian. 'The success of his establishment allowed Farnaby to devote himself to a long-held obsession: the systemization of the grammatical principles of classical Latin and Greek in print. Commencing with the satires of Juvenal and Persius (1612), he annotated many of the classical authors—Seneca, Martial, Lucan, Ovid, Virgil, and Terence—in a manner intended to render their works intelligible to schoolboys [...] He also corresponded with the Dutch intellectuals Gerardus Johannes Vossius and Daniel Heinsius, both of whom acknowledged their own debts to his learning.' (ODNB) His edition of Martial first appeared in London in 1615.   Ref: 51881
