CAESAR, Julius
Commentarii di .C. Iulio Cesare tradotti per Agostino Vrtica della Porta genovese. Et postillati delli nomi moderni
1517. "If you must break the law, do it to seize power: in all other cases observe it!" - Julius Caesar A rare collection of civil war histories and Julius Caesar war commentaries edited and translated by Augustino Ortica della Porta. This beautiful example features illustrated initials and hand-drawn figures in-text. Julius Caesar's war commentaries are some of the most prolific military writings! While not specifically known for his writing, Julius Caesar wrote this book which would become a mainstay in the Latin literature canon. It focuses on first-hand account of Julius Caesar in the Callic wars, but it was written as though from a third-person view. Includes an incredible contemporary manuscript at the end of the work. [Attributes: First Edition]
