Comments by Thomas Farnaby. Written in latin.

Publius Vergilius Maro (also known by the Anglicised forms of his name as Virgil or Vergil) (October 15, 70 BC – September 21, 19 BC) was a classical Roman poet, best known for three major works—the Eclogues (or Bucolics), the Georgics, and the Aeneid although several minor poems are also attributed to him. Virgil came to be regarded as one of Rome's greatest poets. His Aeneid can be considered a national epic of Rome and has been extremely popular from its publication to the present day.

Thomas Farnaby was a leading classical scholar as well as the outstanding schoolmaster of his time. His works chiefly consisted of annotated editions of Latin authors Juvenal, Persius, Seneca, Martial, Lucan, Virgil, Ovid and Terence, which enjoyed extraordinary popularity. He is also the author of textbooks on rhetoric and Latin grammar. His editions of the classics, with elaborate Latin notes, were very popular throughout the seventeenth century. He edited Juvenal's and Persius's satires ; Seneca's tragedies; Martial's ‘Epigrams’ ; Lucan's ‘Pharsalia’; Virgil's works; Ovid's ‘Metamorphoses’ ; Terence's comedies, ed. Farnaby and Meric Casaubon.

7" X 4" Full vellum 440 pages. Engraved title page. Text printed in italics. Farnaby's notes are located in outside margins and at foot of text. All pages tight to the spine with little to no foxing. Vellum cover attached, but pulling away slightly from the inside edges of the front and back cover.

Written in ink on FFEP is " Ad usum Antonii Peroni Albanensis " and on the FFEP is his seal on the folded corner (see additional photos). I have been unable to find much out about this previous owner and hope that the researcher who gets this book will be better able to enhance the seal to determine provenance. FFEP torn in upper right where the fold was made for the seal.

Provenance currently undetermined beyond what is shown above. Embossed seal located on folded corner of FFEP. Corner folded and glued. Name written on bottom of FFEP.
