Item Description: Steiner, Franz, 2004. kartoniert. Book Condition: Neu. 1. Auflage. 204 S. Das historisch-biographische Oeuvre von Cornelius Nepos stand lange im Schatten des etablierten Klassikerkanons. Die vorliegende Untersuchung plädiert für eine Neubewertung.Ausgehend von einer detaillierten Analyse des Textes und seiner Struktur wird herausgearbeitet, daß das Feldherrnbuch konzeptionell der moralischen Geschichtsschreibung nahesteht. Nepos verbindet deskriptives mit pädagogischem Interesse. Eine zentrale Funktion nehmen vor allem die Kommentare des Autors innerhalb der Biographien ein, in denen er direkt oder indirekt die dargestellte Handlungsebene bewertet. Zugleich dominiert die programmatische Zielsetzung die Chronologie der historischen Fakten. ISBN 9783515084789 Sprache: de Gewicht in Gramm: 360. Bookseller Inventory # 44988

Item Description: Leiden (Lugduni Batavorum), Apud Samuelem Luchtmans, 1734., 1734. (XVI including frontispiece),765,(187) p. Half calf 21.5 cm (Ref: Schweiger 2,300/1; Dibdin 2,246; Moss 2,320; Ernesti/Fabricius I,107: 'Optima hodie et nitidissima est') (Details: Back gilt and with 5 raised bands; black morocco shield in the second compartment; covers marbled; margins preserved uncut; frontispiece, executed by J. Visscher, depicting Clio with a pen in her hand, receiving advice from Kronos, scythe at hand, Fama blows her trumpet; title in red and black; printer's mark on title, depicting Athena, motto: 'Tuta sub Aegide Pallas'; small engravings of portraits and objects in the text on 11 pages) (Condition: Head and tail of spine damaged; cover rubbed and scuffed; small library label on the frontcover; half of front flyleaf cut off vertically; flyleaf in the rear gone; 12 gatherings are somewhat browning) (Note: This is an edition with commentary of the only surviving complete work of the Roman historian Cornelius Nepos, ca. 100-24 B.C., 'De excellentibus ducibus exterrarum gentium'. He is the author of the first surviving ancient collection of biographies. 'De excellentibus etc.' contains the lives of 20 Greek generals, and the Carthaginians Hamilkar and Hannibal. Nepos corresponded with Cicero and was close with Cicero's friend Atticus. The collection served probably as a model for Plutarch's Vitae Parallelae. In his own days and in late antiquity Nepos was considered to be a source of importance. The churchfather Hieronymus, included him in his 'De viris illustribus' (392 A.D.) in his list of great authors and historians. Already in late antiquity this collection was ascribed to the grammarian Aemilius Probus, and the 'editio princeps' of 1471 bears his name. The simple style of writing of Nepos has made him a standard choice for schools. The biographies provided the pupils also models of behaviour. Schweiger mentions numerous editions. This edition is a socalled Variorum edition, an edition which contained everthing a student required. Such an edition offers the 'textus receptus' which is widely accepted, accompanied with the commentary and the annotations of specialists, taken from earlier useful, normative or renewing editions. Editions like these, 'cum notis Variorum', were useful, but never broke new ground. The production of this kind of editions was the specialty of Dutch scholars of the 17th and 18th century. The compilers seldom were great scholars, but often hard working schoolmasters. The Dutch schoolmaster who skillfully excerpted, compared and contrasted the material of brighter minds is Augstinus van Staveren, 1704-1772. He was rector of the schola latina at Leiden since 1750. He is known for this edition of Nepos, which saw several later editions, and his 'Auctores Mythographi Latini', which was published in 1742. The frontispiece, or rather the copper plate for this frontispiece and the text engravings which belong to this edition, have a long history. The same plates were used for almost 150 years by different publishing firms. The plates were first used for by Hackius edition of 1658 and then the reissue of 1675. The next users were the Blaeu brothers, in 1687, thereupon probably Mortier, in 1704 (not seen by us), then Janssonius van Waesberge in 1705, and then by Samuel Luchtmans, who seems the last owner, in 1728. Luchtmans used the plates in 1734 again for his new edition of Van Staveren, next for the second edition of 1773, and finally for the 'editio minor' of Van Staveren, which was published in 1793) (Collation: *- 2*8, A-3N8, 3O4) (Photographs on request) 2000 gr.

Item Description: Typis J. Brindley, 1749. Couverture rigide. Book Condition: Très bon. Pas de jaquette. Edition originale. Londini (Londres), Typis J. Brindley, 1749. In 12 de 132pp.-120pp., reliure en plein maroquin vert olive de l'époque, dos lisse légèrement passé orné de caissons et de fleurons dorés, pièce de titre de maroquin bordeaux encadrée d'un double filet doré, petit accroc à la coiffe supérieure, triple filet d'encadrement doré sur les plats, filet doré sur les coupes, coins frottés, quelques rousseurs éparses mais intérieur frais, page de titre de la seconde partie absente, tranches dorées, bon et bel exemplaire. Édition originale établie par Usher Gahagan, publiée l'année ou ce dernier fut pendu pour production de fausse monnaie. Érudit et traducteur irlandais, il publia avec l'éditeur Brindley des traductions estimées des śuvres d'Horace, Cornelius Nepos, Salluste, Juvénal, Perse, Virgile et Térence. Catulle serait né selon Suétone à Vérone en Gaule Cisalpine ou peut-être à Sirmione sur le Lac de Garde en 87 avant Jésus Christ et décéda en 54 avant Jésus Christ à Rome. Il vécut la plus grande partie de sa vie à Rome. Il s'opposa à César avant de se réconcilier avec ce dernier. Il écrivit 116 pièces, dont des épigrammes et des libelles. Ses poésies furent retrouvées en XIVème siècle. Properce naquit en 47 avant Jésus Christ en Ombrie, très probablement près d'Assise et décéda en 16 ou 15 avant Jésus Christ. Il est l'auteur de quatre livres d'Élégies, le premier livre ''Cynthia monobiblos'', le second livre fut sans doute publié l'année suivante, il inclut des poèmes en l'honneur de Mécène, le troisième livre parut en 23 avant Jésus Christ, le quatrième fut publié posthume. Tout ce que l'on sait de Tibulle, c'est ce que nous en disent ses élégies ainsi qu'un passage d'Horace et une biographie anonyme tardive. Celui-ci naquit en 54 avant Jésus Christ et décéda en 19 avant Jésus Christ. 4 livres d'élégies nous sont parvenus, dont seuls les deux premiers sont de nos jours considérés comme authentiques. Le poète y écrit ses amours tumultueuses pour deux femmes successives, Délie et Némésis, ainsi que pour un jeune garçon du nom de Marathus. Le livre I. contenant 10 élégies fut publié vers 26-25 avant Jésus Christ, le livre II. contenant 6 élégies fut publié posthume. les livres III. et IV. appartiennent au Corpus Tibullianum et sont apocryphes.
