Quintus Curtius: History of Alexander by Quintus Curtius Rufus ( Book )
109 editions published between 1491 and 1998 in 4 languages and held by 1,558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Quintus Curtius was apparently a rhetorician who lived in the first century of the Roman empire and, early in the reign of Claudius (AD 41-54), wrote a history of Alexander the Great in 10 books in clear and picturesque style for Latin readers. The first two books have not survived - our narrative begins with events in 333 BC - and there is material missing from books V, VI, and X. One of his main sources is Cleitarchus who, about 300 BC, had made Alexander's career a matter of marvellous adventure. Curtius is not a critical historian; and in his desire to entertain and to stress the personality of Alexander, he elaborates effective scenes, omits much that is important for history, and does not worry about chronology. But he does not invent things, except speeches and letters inserted into the narrative by traditional habit. 'I copy more than I believe', he says. Three features of his story are narrative of exciting experiences, development of a hero's character, and a disposition to moralize. His history is one of the five extant works on which we rely for the career of Alexander the Great. -- jacket

"Q. Curtius Rufus (1st century CE) is one of the most important historians of Alexander the Great. However, existing editions in use today are philologically unsatisfactory for a number of reasons, and the aim of this work is to present a sounder text. This edition is the first to pay adequate attention to the second family of manuscripts, as well as placing the conjectures of the respective philologists in their correct context."--Publisher's website
