With several black and white photographic plates. Original paper wraps bound in. The Macchi M. 9 was a flying boat bomber produced in Italy close to the end of World War I, and shortly afterwards.

M. Tullii Ciceronis Opera Omnia

Cicero; Edited by Jo. Augusti Ernesti

  • Book condition: Good

Londini [London] - J. F. Dove, 1819 Book. Good. Hardcover. A uniformly-bound collection of the works of Marcus Tullius Cicero. With a frontispiece of Cicero to the first volume. In Latin. Petrarch's rediscovery of Cicero's letters is often credited for initiating the 14th-century Renaissance in public affairs, humanism, and classical Roman culture. According to Polish historian Tadeusz Zielinski, Renaissance was above all things a revival of Cicero, and only after him and through him of the rest of Classical antiquity. The peak of Cicero's authority and prestige came during the eighteenth-century Enlightenment, and his impact on leading Enlightenment thinkers such as John Locke, David Hume, and Montesquieu was substantial. His works rank among the most influential in European culture, and today still constitute one of the most important bodies of primary material for the writing and revision of Roman history, especially the last days of the Roman Republic.
