Historiae Augustae Scriptores Sex, Aelius Spartianus, Julius

Item Description: Ex Typographia Societatis, 1787. LEATHER BOUND. Book Condition: Good. B008EKST9M In Latin. 1787 Ex-Typographia Societatis (Zweibrucken, Germany), 5 x 8 inches tall full leather bound, gilt lettering and five raised bands to spine, engraved portrait of Hadrianus to title page, xxxvi, 308 pp. Covers bumped at tips, rubbed and edgeworn, with some scuffing and abrasions. Spine caps frayed. A few marginal ticks to a handful of pages. Occasional minor staining or foxing. Otherwise, a very good copy - clean, bright and unmarked. Volume 1 only (of 2). ~QQ~ An 18th century production of The Augustan History (Historia Augusta), a late Roman collection of biographies, in Latin, of the Roman Emperors, their junior colleagues and usurpers of the period 117 to 284. It presents itself as a compilation of works by six different authors (collectively known as the Scriptores Historiae Augustae), written in the reigns of Diocletian and Constantine I, but the true authorship of the work, its actual date, and its purpose, have long been matters for controversy. Major problems include the nature of the sources it used, and how much of the content is pure fiction. Despite these conundrums, it is the only continuous account for much of its period and is thus continually being re-evaluated, since modern historians are unwilling to abandon it as a unique source of possible information, despite its obvious untrustworthiness on many levels.

Item Description: Paris (Parisiis), Apud Ambrosium & Hieronymum Drouart, 1603., 1603. 4to. 2 volumes in 1: (XX),375,(1 blank),(55)(1 blank); 576,34,(2 blank) p. Overlapping vellum (Ref: Schweiger 2,384; Sandys 2,209; Fabricius/Ernesti. 'Bibliotheca Latina' 3,101/02; NP Suppl. 2, p. 298; Graesse 3,303; Ebert 9827) (Details: 6 thongs laced through the joints. 2 titles, the first is in red and black, the title of the second part is black only. Woodcut printer's mark on the title, a thisle within an oval banner a French and Latin motto, reading: 'Nul ne s'y frote' and 'patere aut abstine', 'let no one meddle', and 'bear of forebear'. 1 text engraving) (Condition: Vellum age-toned. One of the thongs gone. Endpapers renewed, probably in the 19th century before 1879. Some slight foxing. Right lower corner partly and lightly waterstained) (Note: This collection of biographies of Roman emperors, Caesars and usupers was published for the first time in Milan in 1475. It formed part of a bigger collection of historical texts. It was preceded by 'De XII Caesaribus' of Suetonius, and followed by work of the late antique historians Eutropius and Paulus Diaconus. The French classical scholar Isaac Casaubon, or Isaacus Casaubonus, was the first to publish the biographies written by otherwise unknown authors Aelianus Spartianus, Iulius Capitolinus, Aelius Lampridius, Vulcatius Gallicanus, Trebellius Pollio & Flavius Vopiscus, separately in 1603, under the title of 'Historiae Augustae Scriptores Sex'. The first part contains the text, the second the exhaustive commentary of Casaubon. The 30 surviving biographies in this collection were probably written between 293 and 330 A.D. They cover the period from Hadrian to Carinus (roughly 117-284/85). The beginning of the collection seems to be lost, and the original title is unknown. It seems obvious that the biographies written by Suetonius, sometime after 100 A.D., are the example for these 'vitae' of later emperors. The collection is one of the most debated and controversial sources for the history of the Roman emperors. The historic value of the 30 biographies is diverse, some seem to be trustworthy and offer useful information, others seem to be fiction, full of wondrous tales, anecdotes and short stories. Some tend to having been written in the tradition of the ancient novel. The obvious falsification of sources and documents rendered the entire collection suspect. Such caution and some of these observations and were already made by Casaubon. 'He revealed some of their inconsistencies and improbable statements. He used considerations of style and content to argue that the works ascribed in the manuscripts to Aelius Spartianus, Aelius Lampridius and Julius Capitolinus could more plausibly be ascribed to a single author. He showed that the collection had been edited and revised, though the job had been done by an incompetent. He denied that the date or purpose of the revision could be precisely fixed: 'Only a prophet could divine what moved the maker of this collection to arrange it in this form'. (A. Grafton, Defenders of the text, Cambr. Mass. 1991, p. 148) Nowadays it is believed by most scholars that the collected biographies had only one author, writing for the Roman senatorial aristocracy. 'Generell wird die Geschichte des 2. und 3. Jahrhundert aus dem Blickwinkel der nichtchristlichen stadtrömischen Senatsaristokratie betrachtet und das Kaisertum nach dem Verhalten zu diesem Stand bewertet'. Some believe that the biographies are propaganda for the Roman emperor Julianus Apostata, and his pagan revival ca. 360. The Dutch version of Wikipedia refers to the interesting theory of the historian Jona Lendering, stipulating that the collection is an amusing mockumentary, meant to show that christianity was a un-Roman ideology. Nowadays the collection of the 'Scriptores Historiae Augustae' is referred to as the 'Historia Augusta', and used with care by ancient historians.

Item Description: Bâle, Froben, 1533; in-folio, 44 ff.n.ch. + 786 pp. + 1 f. blanc + 42 ff.n.ch., demi-basane rouge du XIXe siècle, dos lisse orné à faux nerfs (petits défauts d'usage). BM-STC German 842. Adams S 2025. Troisième édition de l'Histoire Auguste donnée par Érasme et Jean-Baptiste Egnatius. L'Histoire Auguste est le nom que l'on donne couramment depuis le début du XVIIe siècle à un recueil de biographies d'empereurs romains composé en latin au cours de l'Antiquité tardive, à la fin du IVe siècle. Ce recueil commence avec la vie d'Hadrien et s'achève avec celle de Numérien. Il couvre donc la période allant de 117 à 285 de l'ère chrétienne, avec cependant une lacune de seize ans, entre 244 et 260. S'apparentant à la continuation de l'?uvre de Suétone, cet ouvrage se présente comme une ?uvre collective, rassemblant les travaux de six biographes - Aelius Spartianus, Julius Capitolinus, Vulcacius Gallicanus, Aelius Lampridius, Trébellius Pollion et Flavius Vopiscus. Diverses allusions placent explicitement la rédaction de ces biographies sous les règnes de Dioclétien et de Constantin Ier (284 à 337). Longtemps ce recueil suscita un sentiment ambigu : d'un côté, il est l'une des sources les plus abondantes sur une période mal connue de l'empire, de l'autre, il accumule les erreurs apparentes, les informations triviales ou suspectes. D'une manière générale, les premières biographies sont bien meilleures et plus fiables que les biographies des empereurs plus tardifs et que les biographies des usurpateurs. Exemplaire comportant quelques rousseurs éparses, complet. Belle marque d'imprimeur de Froben à la page de titre, répétée au titre intermédiaire de la page 545 et au verso du dernier feuillet. Nombreuses lettrines gravées sur bois d'après les initiales gravées par Hans Holbein le Jeune vers 1516 (cf. «Hans Holbein d. J. Die Druckgraphik im Kupferstichkabinett Basel», pp. 201 - 202). 1533.

Historiae Augustae Scriptores]. Trebellius Pollio. Flavius Vopiscus.

Item Description: Ex officina Rob. Stephani, Parisiis, 1544. In-8 de 394-(14) pp. (sign. aa-zz, AA, BB8, CC4), vélin ivoire, étiquette ancienne sur le dos (reliure de l'époque). Belle édition en caractères italiques sortie des presses de Robert Estienne en 1544, établie par l'humaniste et philologue italien Giovanni Battista Egnazio (1473-1553). Vies des empereurs romains de l'antiquité tardive composées à la fin du IVe siècle pour faire suite à l'oeuvre de Suétone, réunies sous l'intitulé Histoire Auguste. Contient les récits de Trebellius Pollio, Flavius Vopiscus et Sextus Aurelius Victor suivis des traités De principibus Romanorum d'Egnazio et Historiae Romanae Compendium ab interitu Gordiani usque ad Justinum III du professeur de rhétorique Giulio Pomponio Leto (1428-1497). Robert Estienne avait d'abord imprimé la même année dans une édition séparée les autres récits de l'Histoire Auguste (Dion Cassius, Aelius Spartianus etc.). Des recherches menées au XIXe siècle établirent que ces vies d'empereurs n'étaient pas l'oeuvre d'un collectif mais bien celle d'un seul auteur resté anonyme. Très bel exemplaire en vélin du temps. Marque de l'imprimeur au titre. Ex-libris manuscrit à l'encre du temps sur le feuillet de garde supérieur. De la bibliothèque du Comte de Macclesfield, avec l?ex-libris de la North Library (1860).
