Fabius und Cato, ein Stück der Römischen Geschichte

by [HALLER, Albrecht von]

Condition: See description


Engraved vignette on title. xvi, 286 pp., one leaf of errata. 8vo, fine cont. polished mottled calf, flat spine nicely gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Bern & Göttingen: E. Haller & Widow of Vandenhök, 1774. First edition, and a very fine copy, printed on superior paper. In his old age, Haller turned to fiction and wrote three philosophical romances - Usong (1771), Alfred (1773), and Fabius und Cato (1774) - in which he drew upon his political experience and expounded his ideas of government. In Fabius und Cato, Haller describes the system of government of the Roman Republic. A utopian novel in which Haller makes clear the merits of a limited monarchy. A very fine copy.
