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

― Marcus Tullius Cicero

 

Cicero was one of the most notable and prolific Roman figures of ancient Rome. His philosophical works and letters are considered the most reliable source of information for the period leading up to the fall of the Roman Republic. The works of Cicero have been published in numerous languages and formats from as early as the mid-15th-century; in fact, his work ‘De Officiis’ was notable for being the third book ever printed. (Baldwin, 590).

 

In 1566, French scholar Denis Lambin published his edition of the works of Cicero, an edition that is still considered useful. This 1588 Lambin edition includes portions edited by Alexander Scot, published in Lyon by Pillehotte. Works found in this volume include:

  • Rhetorica ad Herennium (misattributed to Cicero, later found to be written by someone else)
    • Known to be the oldest surviving work on rhetoric and the art of persuasion
  • De Inventione
    • A handbook on the composition of arguments – first book to sue the term ‘liberal arts’
  • Brutus
    • A short story of rhetoric dedicated to Brutus, famed Roman orator
  • Topica
  • Partitia Oratoria Dialogus
    • Dialogues, or question and answers regarding rhetoric
  • Orator ad M. Brutum
    • Treatise on using rhetoric and how to be the perfect orator
  • De Optimo Genere Oratorum
    • Oration style – how to avoid the Atticism in speech
  • Annotations of Dionysus (the Elder)
