Item Description: In aedibus Aldi, et Andreae soceri, Venetiis [Heirs of Aldo Manuzio; Andreas Torresanus, Venice]: ., 1522. Full Cloth. Book Condition: Good. ff. 204 leaves. Woodcut Aldine anchor and dolphin device on the title page and last leaf. Latin Italic type. ** Four decorative and historiated illuminated initials (in colors and gilt) cut from an earlier vellum manuscript and applied in approprite places. There were once other initials mounted, but they were removed years ago making for slight loss where they were attached. Small 8vo. 165 mm. Early 19th century cloth binding. Text block very loose (should probably be guarded and re-sewn). Rare first Aldine edition of Justinus' epitome of historical works by Trogus Pompeius and Nepos, edited by Franciscus Asulanus. Justin was a Roman historian who probably lived during the age of the Antonines. Of his personal history nothing is known. He is the author of Historiarum Philippicarum libri XLIV, a work described by himself in his preface as a collection of the most important and interesting passages from the voluminous Historiae phiilippicae et totius mundi origines et terrae situs, written in the time of Augustus by Pompeius Trogus. Trogus was a freed slave of the triumvir Pompey. He wrote his historical work at the end of the first century BC. The work of Trogus is lost; but the prologi or arguments of the text are preserved by Pliny and other writers. Although the main theme of Trogus was the rise and history of the Macedonian monarchy, Justin permitted himself considerable freedom of digression, and thus produced a capricious anthology instead of a regular epitome of the work. As it stands, however, the history contains much valuable information. The style, though far from perfect, is clear and occasionally elegant. The book was very popular and often consulted in the middle ages and Renaissance. The Aldine edition also includes a collection of lives of Greek leaders of the fifth and fourth centuries B.C. Cornelius Nepos (99-24 B.C.) [here called Aemylius Probus] was well acquainted with Cicero, Pomponius Atticus, and Catullus. The present work, together with two biographies on Cato and Atticus, is all that is left from his writings. Nepos is the first biographer known by name, and he was also the first biographer to compare Romans with foreigners. The biographies of Nepos, who lived under the late Roman Republic and was a friend of Cicero, are particularly valuable for the careers of fourth century generals like Epaminondas and Conon, who are not covered by Plutarch's biographies.
