Item Description: London, Printed for Tho. Passinger, at the Three Bibles on London-Bridge., , 1683. Quarto, 171x122mm. In 19th century full, mid-tan russia, elaborately decorated in the 17th century style with a gilt panel surrounded by a broad gilt roll incorporating leaves and flowers; decorative gilt roll on edge of boards and inner gilt rolls. Binding slightly rubbed at extremities, with very small hole in calf in centre of front board. Sometime rebacked, relaying the original spine; four raised bands, with gilt decoration on the bands, ornate gilt decoration in the compartments and title gilt. All edges gilt. Type-written catalogue entry for this book (before it was rebacked) tipped in at head of front paste-down, beneath which there is the armorial book-plate of Henry Francis Lyte 'Laetitia et Spe Immortalitatis'. [The Reverend Henry Francis Lyte, M.A., 1793-1847, was born in Ednam, Roxburghshire, Scotland, and educated at Portora Royal School, Eniskillen, Ireland. He entered Trinity College Dublin in 1811 and was admitted ad eundem at Oxford in June 1834. Henry was curate at Marazion in Cornwall when he married Anne Maxwell in January 1818; they had five children. Henry moved to Brixham in April 1824 where he established the first Sunday school in the Torbay area, with over 700 pupils and a staff of 80. In 1826 Henry was instituted as the first incumbent of All Saints Church in Lower Brixham, a post he held until his death. Henry supplemented his income by educating 'the wayward sons of nobility' together with his own children. One of the wayward sons became Lord Salisbury, three times Prime Minister during the reign of Queen Victoria. Henry wrote poetry as well as the hymns 'Abide With Me', traditionally sung at Wembley before the FA Cup final, initially at the suggestion of King George V, and 'Praise my soul the King of Heaven'. In 1947 a memorial tablet to Henry Frances Lyte was placed in Westminster Abbey. Henry collected antiquarian religious books and his library of 4,500 books, amassed with the help of his son, took 16 days to auction in London after his death; the sale catalogue, marked with the sale price realised for each item, may still be seen in the National Library.] Small cream roundel with brown border centred on front free end-paper with illustration and 'Still am I busy, bookes assembling, | For to have plentie is a pleasaunt thing. | Shyp of Folys | Pynson 1509, fol.'.

Small ownership stamp: ‘Alexander Gardyne [1801-1885], 1883’, on verso of second blank. The tipped-in catalogue description for this book states: ‘ sadly the enthusiastic binder has cropped the margins with some loss of last lines and catchwords (particularly to the prelims of the first part, the second and third being reasonably unscathed).’ Printed in black letter and roman type. Titles within ornamental woodcut border. Some pen and sepia ink decoration in margin of page 191. Early paper repair at foot of page 227 affecting last line of text.

Some occasional minor browning. Crisp, clean and tight. An attractive book. ESTC R24084. (Photographs available on request.). Bookseller Inventory # 14209

Completely uncut. Eustathius of Thessalonica From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Eustathius of Thessalonica (1110c. - 1198) was a native of Constantinople who became archbishop of Thessalonica. After being a monk in the monastery of St. Florus, he was appointed to the offices of superintendent of petitions, professor of rhetoric, and deacon of the church of Constantinople. After being appointed to the bishopric of Myra he was raised to the archbishopric of Thessalonica, where he remained until his death in 1198. Euthymius and Michael Choniates delivered funeral orations on him, of which manuscripts survive in the Bodleian Library at Oxford. Nicetas Choniates (viii.238, x.334) bestowed praise on him as the most learned man of his age, a judgement which is difficult to dispute. He wrote commentaries on ancient Greek poets, theological treatises, homilies, epistles, and an important account of the sack of Thessalonica by William II of Sicily in 1185. Of his works, his commentaries on Homer are the most widely referred to: they display an extensive knowledge of Greek literature from the earliest to the latest times; other works exhibit an impressive character, and a great oratorical power which earned him the esteem of the imperial family of the Comneni. His most important works are the following: * The Sack of Thessalonica, an eye-witness account of the siege in 1185 and the subsequent sufferings of the people of Thessalonica. In the early sections of this compelling memoir Eustathius describes political events at Constantinople from the death of Manuel I Comnenus through the short reign of Alexius II Comnenus to the usurpation of Andronicus I Comnenus, with sharp comments on the activities of nobles and courtiers. The Greek text was edited most recently by Kyriakidis; there is an English translation by Melville-Jones and a German translation by Herbert Hunger. * Commentaries on the Iliad and Odyssey . These are not original commentaries but collections of extracts from earlier commentators of those two poems; there are many correspondences with the Homeric scholia. This vast compilation was made with great diligence and perseverance from the numerous and extensive works of the Alexandrian grammarians and critics, as well as from later commentators, and constitute the most important contribution to Homeric scholarship in the Middle Ages, not least because all the works from which Eustathius made his extracts are lost. He quotes from a prodigious number of authors; but though it is certain that he had not read all of them, and that he quoted some at second-hand, it is entirely likely that he was personally acquainted with the works of the greatest ancient critics, namely Aristarchus of Samothrace, Zenodotus, Aristophanes of Byzantium, and others, which were probably still accessible in the libraries of Constantinople. He was also an avid reader of the Deipnosophistae of Athenaeus. As commentaries per se these works are less impressive: his remarks are very diffuse, frequently interrupted by all kinds of digressions and filled with etymological and grammatical errors inherited from his Alexandrian predecessors. The commentary contains very little original material, but covers grammar, mythology, history, and geography. The first edition, by Majoranus, was published in Rome in 1542-1550 (4 volumes, fol.), an inaccurate reprint being later published in Basel in 1559-1560. A. Potitus' edition (Florence, 1730, 3 volumes, folio), contains only the commentary on the first five books of the Iliad with a Latin translation. A tolerably correct reprint of.
