[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

[Martial] Martialis, Marcus Valerius: (Farnaby, Thomas, ed.:) Epigrammata. Amsterdami: apud Iohannem Blaeu, 1644. 12mo., pp. 492, including engraved title-page. Latin text and apparatus. Woodcut initials and head- & tail-pieces. Ink smudges and a bit of light offsetting to blank area of p.5 and to text of p.20 where it affects a few words, trimmed closely at fore-edge but only occasionally brushing a letter or two, occasional light spots and smudges. Early 19th-century dark brown morocco, gilt spine, borders and dentelles, a.e.g., marbled endpapers. Joints worn with the upper just starting at each end, small loss to headcap, spine a bit faded. A very good copy in a handsome binding. Inked in an old hand to ffep verso 'Relie par Bozerian Aîné' and in pencil to rear free endpaper recto 'Bound by the famous Bozerian', though not otherwise signed. This refers to Jean-Claude Bozerian (1762-1840), elder of the two Bozerian brothers who were esteemed Parisian bookbinders producing both ordinary and luxury bindings. Jean-Claude practised from 1795 until about 1810, when his nephew P. Lefébure took over the studio. Thomas Farnaby (1574/5–1647) was a celebrated schoolteacher and grammarian.
