Feith, Everard: Antiquitatum Homericarum Libri IV. Editio accuratior. Amstelodami [Amsterdam]: apud Salomonem Schouten, 1726. 8vo., pp.[xx], 404, [xliv]. Woodcut device to title-page, some woodcut initials and decorations. Very faint dampstain to lower margin near front. Final Addenda leaf a little creased. Contemporary vellum, title inked to spine (just visible). Quite grubby, endcaps a little creased, some smudgy marks to endpapers but a good, firm copy. To front paste-down, the signature of Charles Mayo. There are several likely Charles Mayos to whom this volume may have belonged: the historian and clergyman (17501829); the Old English scholar (17671858) or the educational reformer (17921846). Everard Feith's (1597-c.1625) short career was focused on ancient Greece. He is believed to have written five works on the subject, of which this is the second, before entering a house in La Rochelle and vanishing without trace in 1625. The manuscripts of his three final works were lost. Antiquitatum Homericarum was originally published by Bruman in 1677, apparently with the encouragment of J.F. Gronovius.   Ref: 51276
