Summa del trentennale percorso di studi ciceroniani di Emanuele Narducci, il volume propone, attraverso l'ampio racconto biografico, una ricostruzione compiuta del personaggio Cicerone, in cui si integrano inscindibilmente l'uomo politico, l'oratore, il filosofo, l'intellettuale, lo scrittore. E poiché in ciascuno di questi aspetti egli è stato una figura centrale, un punto di riferimento, un modello, il libro offre anche, attraverso la biografia, un quadro sociale, politico e culturale di una fase cruciale della storia. Dalla Prefazione di Mario Citroni

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1883 edition. Excerpt: ... These were usually slaves, "answering in many respects to what we now term nursery-governesses, who taught children the first rudiments of literature, and afterward attended them to school." Rams., p. 422. English derivative, "page." Aestimandi, the reading of B. after Mommsen; the MSS. have est. 0. inserts after modo. By the reading of B., the antecedent of qui is paedagogi, but I believe that L. gives the correct explanation, who considers the clause isto--postulabunt parenthetical, and eos as the antecedent of qui. A Roman did not need to be told that friendship with a slave was out of the question; and that is not the point here in view, but what is to be done in the case of early friends who are not drawn nearer by the pursuits of later life. They are not to be cast aside, but will hold a place different from that of those found with maturer judgment. Aliter, otherwise than on the principle stated in the clause omnino--mint. Dispares--seqnnntnr, dissimilar charaeters result from dissimilar pursuits. Some take studia as the subject. Quanta = quam. Distantia, found only here in Cicero. 75. Nee, followed by et saepe instead of nee; cf. neque--et, 79, and nee--et, 104. Kcoptolrmns, also called Pyrrhus, son of Achilles and grandson of Lycomedcs. He was brought by Odysseus from the house of Lycomedes to the Trojan war, and thence taken to Lcmnos to gain the aid of Philoctetes, who had the arrows of Hercules, without which the oracle declared Troy could not be taken. Inpedlentem = cum inpedicbat. The present participle has often a conative force. Discedendnm, a temporary separation, not a permanent estrangement. Ferat. H. 486, HI. Fur translation, see n. on invitus, 4. Infirmns mollisqne, weak and unmanly; que...

"Though Cicero of course did not know it at the time, it was to be his last significant public performance as an independent political agent before the upheaval that followed Caesar's murder; in little more than a month Caesar and Pompey would meet at Luca, and Cicero would be kept on a short leash until the outbreak of civil war. The speech's account of recent history and of the men who made it provides any student of Rome with a full and fascinating way into the period. Because so much of the account concerns public meetings, demonstrations, and outbursts of violence, it is highly pertinent to the current debate on the place of the crowd in Rome in the late Republic'; more generally, the speech - with its energy, drama, and broad scope - is among the best introductions we have to traditional Republican values and ethics in action. This new translation and commentary make this important text accessible to a new generation of readers."--BOOK JACKET.

In writing this book three questions chiefly interested me. What books and pamphlets did Richard Porson own? From whom did he acquire these materials? What has become of his holdings? Answering the first question was relatively easy. For over two hundred years students have known that, after his death, Porsons library was divided into two unequal parts. The larger portion was sent to auction, the smaller part, together with Porsons papers, was separately sold to Trinity College, Cambridge. To treat the problem I have examined all of the microfilm set of the Sotheby auction catalogues from 1783 to 1808, save when catalogues were not marked or the markings were too faint to decipher: notably Jan. 1, 1785; May 29, 1786; Jan. 22 and May 1, 1797; June 1788; Jan. 13, 1789; May 26, 1791; June 22, 1795; Jan. 1796; 1800; Nov. 14, 1803 through Dec. 3, 1804 (twenty-three catalogues); April 18 and May 29, 1805; April 14-30, May 19, June 5, July 2, 10, 15, 1806...or when the microfilm is imperfect. Likewise, I have seen, in London, most of Christies book catalogues from 1782 to 1808; and, in Los Angeles, much of the Frank Marcham collection at UCLA (coll. 416 boxes 10-34). Finally, I have seen almost all of Porsons books at Trinity and a few other places. From 1786 to 1808, Porson purchased hundreds of books and pamphlets. The records allow us to trace his purchases at forty-seven auctions. Of these, Leigh & Sotheby presented most of the sales. But Porson also bought at sales offered through Edwards, Robson and Clarke, King & Loche, and he at least interested himself in a Stewart sale. In addition, one has to take into account books given to Porson as prizes or gifts; perhaps books entrusted to him for review; and books for which he subscribed. Addressing the second question is complicated by three factors. First, there is the imperfection of the records. The archives of most houses do not sirvive; even the L&S house-files are, on occasion, imperfect or incompletely legible. Secondly, clerks wrote down what they heard. Often enough, they heard Pawson or Pauson, and it was needful to establish identity. Thirdly, there are difficulties in the way of determining specific editions: these range from the existence of multiple editions or impressions to incompleteness of library records and of descriptions of volumes of tracts.
