C. Asini Polionis de Bello Africo Commentarius (Classic Reprint)

Description

Excerpt from C. Asini Polionis De Bello Africo Commentarius Commentarn de bello Africo edendi consilium natum est, simulatque Gustavus Landgraf argumentis satis pro babilibus hunc librum a C. Asinio Polione conscriptum esse confirmatum autem est, quia eodem fere tempore Stofl'elius homo rei militaris peritissimus, de rebus C. Caesare gestis optime tertia. Denique acce debat causa, quod meliorem Africae provinciae notitiam de bemus Carolo Tissot...) Videbatur enim operae pretium esse accuratius inquirere, in quantum sermo, quo usus est belli Africi auctor, congrueret et cum Asinii epistulis ad Ciceronem datis et cum iis, quae vetores de Asinio poeta, oratore, historiarum scriptore memoriae prodiderunt. Quod etsi ns absurdum fortasse videbitur, qui incertum libri aucto rem in numero hominum plebeiorum ponere consuerunt (a quo genere Asinium Polionem aliquantum distare nemo negat) nostris tamen temporibus, quae sermoni plebeio aut familiari iure tribuuntur, eadem priscae quoque Romanorum orationi vindicari posse comprobatum est, quia, quae veteribus placuernnt, a Tulliana vero facundia abborruerunt et verbis novicns cesserunt, vulgi consuetudine diutius servata esse constat. Itaque non tam agitur de dicendi genere vulgari, quam de priscae orationis colore, cuius quoniam veteres Asinium amantîssimum fuisse professi sunt, ante omnia quae rendum erat, referretne tota. Libelli indoles summi oratoris imaginem. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
