Threnothriambos. Sive Liber Job Graeco carmine redditus per J.D. Cantabrigiensem, S.T.B. Editio altera, multis in locis ab Autore recognita & emendata. Cui adduntur in sine tres Psalmi
Apud Thomam Buck, Cantabrigiae [i.e. Cambridge] 1653 - [16], 203pp, [5]. First word of title transliterated from the Greek. Contemporary calf, recently rebacked by Stoakley of Cambridge, lettered in gilt. Rubbing to boards. Bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst to FEP, light marginal damp-staining throughout. A translation into Homeric Greek verse, with parallel Latin prose, of the book of Job arranged by sometime Dean of Peterborough and Master of Magdalene College, James Duport (1606-1679). First printed in 1637, the work established Duport's reputation as a learned scholar and adept poet, and doubtless contributed to his being appointed regius professor of Greek at Cambridge in 1639.
