1730 1ed Drapier Letters by Jonathan Swift Ireland Numismatics Hibernian Patriot "Vision is the art of seeing things invisible." ― Jonathan Swift Jonathan Swift was an Irish author most-known for his 18th-century masterpieces such as 'Gulliver's Travels' and 'A Tale of a Tub'.

These letters were a mini-series of pamphlets written to increase public opinion against a new copper coinage mint that was established in Dublin. Swift decided to single handedly try to prove the new coin licensing as corrupt by issuing these letters, raising awareness, and condemning William Wood and his new copper coins. Item number: #6601 Price: $499 SWIFT, Jonathan The Hibernian patriot: being a collection of the Drapier's letters to the people of Ireland, concerning Mr. Wood's brass half-pence; together with considerations to the attempts made to pass that coin, and reasons for the people of Ireland's refusing it; to which are added, poems and ...

1667 Suetonius Twelve Caesars Julius Caesar Caligula Nero ROME French Portraits "Nothing is more unpredictable than the mob, nothing more obscure than public opinion, nothing more deceptive than the whole political system." ― Suetonius, 'The Twelve Caesars' Suetonius was a 1st-century Roman historian who is most remembered by his important set of biographies of twelve successive Roman rulers from Julius Caesar to Domitian. "The Lives of Twelve Caesars" or "De Vita Caesarum" is still considered one of the primary sources on Roman history and discusses important facets of the end of the Roman Republic. "Twelve Caesars" covers the lives of Julius Caesar, Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero, Galba, Otho, Vitellus, Vespasian, Titus, and Domitian, and is the first work to offer insights to some of the lesser-known aspects of these important Roman figures – such as Julius Caesar's struggle with epilepsy. The extent of what is culturally known about Caligula comes almost exclusively from Suetonius ... Read more
