1657 Lucius Florus History of Ancient Rome + Ampelius Liber Memorialis Salmasius "Men of outstanding ability are more likely to lack the power of controlling their own people than of defeating an enemy in battle." ― Livy, The History of Rome Florus was a Roman historian who lived during the 2nd-century AD. His history of Rome was collected by Livy, and mainly focuses on the foundation of Rome though the end of the B.C. era. The work is considered inaccurate, especially compared to Livy's much more popular and famous History of Rome. This 1657 Elzevier edition of Florus was edited by the 17th-century French classist Claudius Salmasius. First appearing in 1638, this book not only includes Florus but also an edition of Lucius Ampelius's 'Liber Memorialis'. This work is an ancient index of 1st-century Roman history focusing on cosmography, mythology, and geography during the Republican period of Rome. Curiously, this is only the second known edition of Ampelius. Item number: #7112 Price: $499 FLORUS, Luciu ... Read more

1821 1ed DANTE Divine Comedy Italian + JESUIT Venturi Commentary Papacy Bembo"Abandon all hope, ye who enter here."― Dante Alighieri, The Divine ComedyDante's "Divine Comedy" is one of the most important and long-lasting works for literature – a journey through Hell and human nature. In 1732, a Jesuit professor from Florence, Pompeo Venturi, published an important critical edition of 'Divine Comedy'. It is known to 'favor the confessional verse against the philological, as it offers an explanatory exegesis, serving God' (Spera). Interestingly, Venturi, a Jesuit, sought to defend the temporal power of the pope and his authority with this work. Venturi criticized Dante's 'pluristilism' which linked Venturi to Bembian doctrines, (i.e. literary theories of Pietro Bembo). (Spera).Published in Venturi's hometown in 1821, this Florentine edition was the first published by Ciardetti. Three Italian volumes, complete with Venturi's notes and commentary under the original Canto text. Item number: #5154 Price: $599AL ... Read more
