Condición del libro: Good

Edición: First Edition.


London, 1678. 8vo, 478 pp., modern reback with original "Cambridge" style boards preserved. Pages 33-48 are missing, and in instead the binder has bound in seven leaves of a book on fowling (our best guess is that it's a section of Markham's Hunger's Prevention or the Whole Arte of Fowling). Contents otherwise very good with sporadic light normal foxing. A scarce early translation of Valerius. "[Valerius] The author's chief sources are Cicero, Livy, Sallust and Pompeius Trogus, especially the first two. Valerius's treatment of his material is careless and unintelligent in the extreme; but in spite of his contusions, contradictions and anachronisms, the excerpts are apt illustrations, from the rhetorician's point of view, of the circumstance or quality they were intended to illustrate. And even on the historical side we owe something to Valerius. He often used sources now lost, and where he touches on his own time he affords us some glimpses of the much debated and very imperfectly recorded reign of Tiberius." (Wikipedia). Wing V34.
