De bello civili, libri decem

New edition. The earliest edition published by Sebastianum Gryphium, in 8 we have found is that in 1539, owned by BN France. Italic print. Full contemporary calf. Back tooled raised florets, roulette cold tail and cap. Hot boards struck a central medallion with Renaissance motifs. Nets coaching. Gilt edges. Friction. Mors skillfully restored. Edition of the most famous work of Lucan (39-65), better known by the name of the Pharsalia, which tells the epic form in the wars between Caesar and Pompey. The poem follows the chronological order of events and is not without historical interest. The Latin poet was born in Cordoba in Spain, he fell out of favor with Nero, then participated in the conspiracy Nison against the emperor, who ordered him to suicide. His contemporaries gave him a brilliant language and a rare energy style, cleaner perhaps eloquence than poetry. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
