Title: Cornelius Nepos, Perperam Vulgo Aemilius Probus dictus, De Vita Excellentium Imperatorum
Author: Christophoro Cellario
Publisher: Christoph Gotter
Printing Year: 1742

Condition/Details: Bound in leather, with raised spine bands and leather spine label, this antique Latin volume provides a history of the Roman biographer Cornelius Nepos. His only surviving work is the Excellentium Imperatorum Vitae, which appeared in the reign of Theodosius I, as the work of the grammarian Aemilius Probus, who presented it to the emperor with a dedication in Latin verse. He claims it to have been the work of his mother or father (the manuscripts vary) and his grandfather. Despite the obvious questions (such as why is the preface addressed to someone named Atticus when the work was supposedly dedicated to Theodosius), no one seemed to have doubted Probus's authorship. Eventually Peter Cornerus discovered in a manuscript of Cicero's letters the biographies of Cato and Atticus. He added them to the other existing biographies, despite the fact that the writer speaks of himself as a contemporary and friend of Atticus, and that the manuscript bore the heading E libro posteriore Cornelii Nepotis ('from the last book of Cornelius Nepos') At last Dionysius Lambinus's edition of 1569 bore a commentary demonstrating on stylistic grounds that the work must have been of Nepos alone, and not Aemilius Probus. This view has been tempered by more recent scholarship, which agrees with Lambinus that they are the work of Nepos, but that Probus probably abridged the biographies when he added the verse dedication. The Life of Atticus, however, is considered to be the exclusive composition of Nepos. (historical detail courtesy of Wikipedia)

The title page of this antique volume contains red and black text. The work features an engraved frontispiece and fold-out map. The volume shows external age/wear, with darkening to the leather and rubbing concentrated along the spine and board edges. The volume is solidly bound with darkened, age-toned pages, with foxing. The book measures approximately 3 /12" x 5 1/2" and contains 443 pages plus an unpaginated index.
