1751. A Very Good copy in full leather with the spine in compartments and a green label in one compartment. The volume shows some wear to the joints as well as some light toning to the leaves (with the margins of the first three leaves -- front free endpaper, half-title, and title page -- heavily toned). The first page of text bears (in black ink) the signature "Thomas Dades Sallust" followed by the date "1754". Per Wikipedia: 'Gaius Sallustius Crispus, usually anglicised as Sallust (86 – c. 35 BC),[1] was a Roman historian, politician, and novus homo from an Italian plebeian family. Sallust was born at Amiternum in the country of the Sabines and was a popularis, an opponent of the old Roman aristocracy, throughout his career, and later a partisan of Julius Caesar. Sallust is the earliest known Roman historian with surviving works to his name, of which Catiline's War (about the conspiracy in 63 BC of L. Sergius Catilina), The Jugurthine War (about Rome's war against the Numidian King Jugurtha from 111 to 105 BC), and the Histories (of which only fragments survive) are still extant. Sallust was primarily influenced by the Greek historian Thucydides and amassed great (and ill-gotten) wealth from his governorship of Africa..........On the whole, antiquity looked favourably on Sallust as a historian. Tacitus speaks highly of him (Annals, iii.30); and Quintilian does not hesitate to put him on a level with Thucydides, and declares that he is a greater historian than Livy. Martial joins the praise: 'Sallust, according to the judgment of the learned, will rank as the prince of Roman historiographers'." A Very Good copy of this notable work by the highly-regarded Ancient Roman Historian. Item #1038
