“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”

― Marcus Tullius Cicero

 

Cicero’s “De Officis,” describes the best way to live, behave, and work. It also depicts Roman politics and way of life during the Roman Republic after the overthrow of Julius Caesar. This work is notably famous for being the third book ever printed and that “during the 15th-century, ‘De Officiis’ was the pinnacle of moral philosophy” (Baldwin, 590).

 

In addition to ‘De Officiis’ this 1570 Gryphium edition contains other important works of Cicero including:

  • ‘Cato Maior de Senectute’ – ‘On Old Age’
    • An essay on the subject of aging and dying
  • ‘Laelius de Amicitia’
    • Treatise on friendship
  • ‘Paradoxa Stoicorum’
    • on communication, wisdom, virtues, and need for happiness
  • ‘Somnium Scipionis’ – on dreaming and visions
    • This work in particular had a tremendous impact on the future of dream theory, cosmology, and interpretation

 

This particular 16th-century edition of Cicero is considerably rare. In fact, only three examples are known to exist in any worldwide institution!
