“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!

 

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 highly desirable 1661 Elzevier edition was collected and edited by French historian Joseph Scaliger and includes an impressive double page map of Europe and numerous full-page engravings. This volume also includes commentaries ascribed to Hirtius:

  • “De bello Alexandrino”,
  • “De bello africano”,
  • “De bello hispaniensi”
  • “De Galliae divisione Aldi Manutii … Commentarius”
  • “Nomenclator geographicus”

 

Note the coat of arms on the binding of Charles Auger de La Motte, governor of Marie-Galante, Guadeloupe, and Tortuga and the Coast of Saint-Domingue in the 17th-century.
