London, T. Child & R. Knaplock, 1713
£500

'[Kennett] graduated BA in 1693 and MA in 1696 [from Oxford College]. That year he published his first and most successful work, Romae antiquae notitia, or, The Antiquities of Rome. Prefaced by two original essays - 'The Roman learning' and 'The Roman education' - it passed through many editions, and as late as 1786 the bookseller William Lowndes purchased a thirty-second share in the rights to the book. Its elegant synthesis of the antiquarian data assembled over the previous 200 years ensured it a leading place among books on the daily life of the Romans until the nineteenth century' (DNB).
