This edition also includes Raimundo Marliano’s useful index of the topography of Gaul in Roman times.

Admired for their style (most famously by Cicero) and read by both his supporters and detractors alike in antiquity, Caesar’s Commentarii fell into obscurity in the Middle Ages.

Paris: Ex Officina Roberti Stephani, 1538- 1539

$10,500.00

Folio: Five volumes bound as two: 37.5 x 25 cm. Vol I: “Rhetorica”: *8, a-s8. (*1 is the general title, a1 is the title to Vol I); “Orationes”: aa-zz8, aaa-qqq8, rrr-sss6 (lacking blank sss6); Vol II: “Epistolae”: A-Z8, AA-CC8; “Philosophica”: Aa-Zz8, AAA-DDD8, EEE10; “Explicationes”: A-P8, Q10 (Q10 blank and present)

For his edition, Robert Estienne used the text of Cicero as edited by Pietro Vettori, and has included Vettori's important "Explicationes" as a fifth volume. Vettori would later (in 1557) furnish the first complete text of Aeschylus' "Oresteia" for Henri Estienne II's celebrated edition of the tragedian's plays.

"The respect and renown accumulated by the edition of Cicero's complete works produced by Petrus Victorius (Pietero Vettori, 1499-1585) between 1534 and 1537, was in large part due to the careful and extensive integration of manuscript evidence into the text.

“The merits of all preceding editions are eclipsed by this celebrated one of Joshua Barnes. Fabricius observes that ‘the text is accurately revised and printed, the metrical rules of Canter diligently corrected, and the entire ancient scholia on the first seven plays subjoined and enriched by excerpta from a manuscript in Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. The notes of various learned men, and those of Barnes accompany the scholia; the fragments of Euripides are carefully collected and displayed, with Greek and Latin notes as far as verse 2068; lastly, there are some epistles, attributed to Euripides.

This is the first complete rendering into English of the most important Roman historian. The scholar-surgeon Philemon Holland is one of the great literary figures of the twilight years of the Elizabethan age. Like his contemporary John Florio, who translated Montaigne’s “Essays” into English in 1599, Holland not only made the works that he translated accessible to English readers, but also put his own stamp on those works, creating something at once faithful and new.
