1517 Julius Caesar WAR Commentaries Military Tactics

Lot 0002
1517 Julius Caesar WAR Commentaries Military Tactics Italian Agostino Porta

“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 edited and translated by Augustino Ortica della Porta. This beautiful example features illustrated initials and hand-drawn figures in-text.

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.
