The title is only half of the full sentence and the reader has to complete it.

So: On first looking into Chapman' s Homer, I thought I had seen it all but never anything like this, but on second thoughts it is as vacuous as astronomy.

So you have to twig the English phrase "at first sight.....but on second thoughts".

I.e. Chapman' s Homer is bling (apparently spectacular and substantially empty/meaningless): plenty for the sight but nothing for the mind.

For me he is saying he had seen and experienced wonders before, but this time it's a new level- it's a new discovery, a new wonder.
