About this Item: Amsterdam (Amsterodami), Typis Ludovici Elzevirii, Sumptibus societatis, 1651., 1651. Small 8vo. (XII),273,(3 blank) p. Calf 11 cm (Ref: Willems 1132; Berghman 2090; Rahir 1152; Schweiger 2,564; Brunet 1199/1200; Graesse 4,273; Ebert 12345) (Details: Back ruled blind. Boards with double fillet borders. Engraved title depicting a battle scene) (Condition: Binding scuffed. Joints splitting. Corners bumped. Endpapers detached. Ownership entry on the front flyleaf. Right margin of the title slightly cut short and thumbed) (Note: When the first three books of the only surving work of the Roman poet Marcus Annaeus Lucanus, 39-65 A.D., the epic 'Bellum Civile' or 'Pharsalia', were published in 62 or 63, the emperor Nero was not amused, because it was great poetry, and because it contained eloquent denunciations of tyranny. The epic was on the civil war between Caesar and Pompeius, a war that ended the Roman republic. Lucan soon joined the conspiracy of Piso against Nero, and was forced to commit suicide on its disclosure, spring 65. The remaining books of the Pharsalia, the last, book X being unfinished, were published posthumously after the death of Nero. 'Beginning with the causes of the war between Caesar and Pompey, it carries the story beyond the death of Pompey until it breaks off with Caesar's occupation of Pharos in Egypt. The battle of Pharsalus is related in book 7. (.) All the resources of rhetoric are enlisted to impress the reader; vehement declamation and brilliant epigrammatic utterances (sententiae) are everywhere in evidence. There are numerous digressions, many of them making a display of curious learning'. (OCD 2nd ed. p. 620) Lucan made Pompey a tragic figure and evoked sympathy for him and his lost republican cause. The climax of the story is the battle at Pharsalos. According to Rose, the Pharsalia contains some of the finest rhetoric ever written in verse. (H.J. Rose, A handbook of Latin literature, London 1967, p. 380) The philosophy of the Pharsalia is grotesque Stoic. § Lucan was during the Middle Ages a popular school-author, he survives in ca. 300 manuscripts. His afterlife is interesting. At the beginning of the Renaissance he was placed by Dante alongside Homer, Horace and Ovid. 'For the Renaissance, Lucan provided an important precedent for composing epics about comparatively recent historical events, and more remarkably (.) for epics whose sympathies favor the losing side', e.g Alonso de Ercilla's 'Araucana', or Agrippa d'Aubigné's 'Tragiques', about the persecution of the Huguenots. Lucan's republicanism made him in the 17th century unsuitable for incorporation in the series 'editions for the Dauphin', the crown prince of France, while on the other hand the poet was admired by Voltaire for his 'libertas'. § The Dutch statesman, theologian, neolatin poet and scholar Hugo de Groot, latinized as Hugo Grotius, 1583-1645, is best known for his 'Mare Liberum' (1609) and 'De jure belli ac pacis' (1625). He translated the Phoenissae of Euripides, the poetic extracts in Stobaeus, and edited Lucan and Silius Italicus. Among classical philologists he is known for his great Latin translation of the Planudean Anthology into Latin, which was published posthumely (1795/1822). 'He had a singular faculty for illustrating any passage with the aid of apt parallels from his wide reading of the Classics'. (Sandys 2,318) Grotius published Lucan's epic about the Roman civil war in 1614 at the height of the war of religions in the Netherlands. Lucan and Grotius warn against the destructive consequences of civil war. Grotius' text of Lucan was a revision based on many variant readings in manuscripts and older printed editions. Reissues appeared in 1619, 1626, 1627, 1636, 1651, 1657, 1659, 1671. Grotius' notes were excerpted and adopted in many more 17th & 18th century editions of Lucan) (Provenance: On the front flyleaf: 'Thomas Evans his book'; and its abbreviation 'Evs hs b.' with a contraction sign above the letter v. There are quite a number of Thomas Evanses. We traced one who was evidently an admirer of. Seller Inventory # 120270
