“Hateful to me as the gates of Hades is that man who hides one thing in his heart and speaks another.”

― Homer, The Iliad

 

A rare 18th-century printing of the famous Classical Greek epic, the ‘Odyssey’ by Homer. This poem portrays Greek mythological heroes, their military conquests, and involvement in the Trojan War. This work, along with Homer’s ‘Iliad’, has been printed and reprinted countless times, but editions that feature both Greek and Latin translations like this one are considered scarce.

 

This 1740 two-volume edition was edited by Samuel Clarke and features Homer’s hymns and epigrams, as well as ‘Batrachomyomachia’ – a work that was, for centuries, attributed to Homer as well.
