1572 1ed Livy Ab Urbe Condita Sigonius Commentary - Carlo Sigonio; Livy - 1572. [1273814]
Venetiis : in aedibus Manutianis, 1572. - 1572 1ed Livy Ab Urbe Condita Sigonius Commentary ROME Latin Aldine Aldus FOLIO This Carolus Sigonius commentary on Livy’s Ab Urbe Condita is often considered the most accurate and respected commentary on Livy’s work. There are also few, if any, printers in the history of publishing more iconic than the Aldine press. This printing collides two of the most iconic aspects of Roman History and printing into one tome! Carolus Sigonius (c. 1524 – 1584) was an Italian humanist, born in Modena. Titus Livius Patavinus (59 BC – AD 17)—known as Livy in English—was a Roman historian who wrote a monumental history of Rome and the Roman people – Ab Urbe Condita Libri (Books from the Foundation of the City) – covering the period from the earliest legends of Rome before the traditional foundation in 753 BC through the reign of Augustus in Livy's own time. He was on familiar terms with the Julio-Claudian dynasty, advising Augustus's grandnephew, the future emperor Claudius, as a young man not long before 14 AD in a letter to take up the writing of history. Livy and Augustus's wife, Livia, were from the same clan in different locations, although not related by blood. Ab Urbe Condita Libri—often shortened to Ab Urbe Condita—is a monumental history of ancient Rome in Latin begun sometime between 27 and 25 BC by the historian Titus Livius, known in English as Livy. The Latin title can be literally translated as "Books since the city's founding". It is often referred to in English, however, as The History of Rome. The work covers the time from the stories of Aeneas, the earliest legendary period from before the city's founding in c. 753 BC, to Livy's own times in the reign of the emperor Augustus.
