“Truth is the daughter of time”

― Aulus Gellius, Noctes Atticae, XII

 

A very rare and beautiful edition of Aulus Gellius’ ‘Attic Nights’. This book was a compilation of notes and shorter essays on grammar, philosophy, history, and antiquities which offer a glimpse into the cultures of both Greek and Roman life and society. Gellius began the work while he was living in Attica, Greece, but concluded the work in Rome. The rather disjunct contents include Gellius’s observations and unusual interests found in books or overheard in conversation.

 

This 1585 edition was published in Lyon by Antoine Gryphe.
