About This Item

Jacob Bryant. A Dissertation concerning the War of Troy, and the Expedition of the Grecians, as Described by Homer; Shewing that No Such Expedition was ever Undertaken, and that No Such City of Phrygia Existed.

Illustrated with folding map. 4to. Late 18th or early 19th century half-calf over marbled boards, leather label on spine. London N.D. (1796 per ESTC). First Edition of Bryant's controversial dissertation in which he ignited one of the longer scholarly controversies of the 18th century, asserting that there never was a war at Troy.

Bound with:

John Bacon Sawrey Morritt
('Troy Morritt'). A Vindication of Homer and of the Ancient Poets and Historians, Who Have Recorded the Siege and Fall of Troy. In Answer to Two Late Publications of Mr. Bryant.

Illustrated with a folding map of the plain of Troy and 5 folding plates. York 1798. First Edition of Morritt's very critical and beautifully illustrated response to Bryant. The 5 folding pictorial views include the plain of troy; the tombs of Ajax; Achilles; Patroculus and Hector; and of Troy from the Scamander.

Binding is scuffed and worn, with the boards just holding by the cords; text is in very good condition with moderate toning; the plates and the maps, being on finer paper, are excellent examples. From the library at Ditton Park. Rare.
