Historia romana by Appianus( Book )

17 editions published between 1477 and 1500 in Latin and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aquest còdex transcriu parcialment la "Historia romana" d'Apià, concretament, els llibres "Libycus", "Syrius", "Parthicus" i "Mithridaticus". Conté, a més a més, el prefaci-dedicatòria al pontífex Nicolau V i un prohemi escrits per Pier Candido Decembrio, autor de la traducció llatina. En el llibre titulat "Libycus" s'interromp el text degut a la mancança d'un full com indicà convenientment el copista (f. 33r-34r). L'espai destinat a les rúbriques ha romàs en blanc. Així mateix, tot coincidint amb aquell, hom ha escrit, en majúscules, el títol de cadascun dels llibres

Quintus Curtius [History of Alexander] by Quintus Curtius Rufus( Book )

14 editions published between 1478 and 1531 in 4 languages and held by 19 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 (41-54 CE), 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--the narrative begins with events in 333 BCE--and there is material missing from books V, VI, and X. One of his main sources is Cleitarchus who, about 300 BCE, 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 moralise. His history is one of the five extant works on which historians rely for the career of Alexander the Great
