“If you must break the law, do it to seize power: in all other cases observe it!”

– Julius Caesar

 

A rare collection of civil war histories and Julius Caesar war commentaries by Blaise de Vigenere. Vigenere is most remembered for his cipher, called the ‘Vigenere cipher’, which was a method for encrypting text using a series of Caesar ciphers.

 

Julius Caesar’s war commentaries are some of the most prolific military writings! While not specifically known for his writing, Julius Caesar wrote this book which would become a mainstay in the Latin literature canon. It focuses on first-hand account of Julius Caesar in the Callic wars, but it was written as though from a third-person view.

 

This book is incredibly illustrated with in-text engravings on wood depicting animals, city views, and maps as described by Julius Caesar. It also includes Pliny’s ‘Eloges de Cesar’, ‘Abregez de Flore by Florus, and ‘Sommaire d’Eutrope’ by Eutropius.
