About this Item: Jean Elzevier, Lugundum Batavorum (Leiden): 1658., 1658. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 417p.+ Engraved title. No blanks. Small 24mo. [125 x 72 mm.] Old worming in last two gatherings, with slight loss. Plain vellum. Lucan was born in Córdoba, Spain, nephew of the Roman philosopher Senec a. At first in Nero's favor, he was later forced to kill himself when his part in a plot against the emperor was discovered. Ten books of his epic Bellum Civile (on the civil war between Caesar and Pompey), erroneously called Pharsalia, survive. Though the poem is written in a severe style and is often digressive and extravagant, it has a kind of vigorous beauty and grandeur which gave Lucan a hig h place in the esteem of later writers. This translation into French by Mr. De Breboeuf was first published in 1655, by Sommaville, Paris. First Elzevier edition. The Dutch family of Elzevier (Elzevir; Elsevier) were the foremost printers of their time. They produced a vast variety of well printed scholarly and popular books; many in a very small handy format. Louis Elzevier, the founder of the firm, produced his first book in Leiden in 1583. The 'golden age' of Elzevier printing was between 1620 and 1680. The Elzevier dynasty probably produced their last publication in 1770. Willems 827; Brunet III:1202. **PRICE JUST REDUCED! SMALL BOX 2/SHU9. Seller Inventory # 405CLAELZ9
