1692 Works of Cicero Politics Philosophy ROME Letters Dutch Jacob Gronovio Latin“A room without books is like a body without a soul.” ― Marcus Tullius CiceroCicero was one of the most notable and prolific Roman figures of ancient Rome. His philosophical works and letters are considered the most reliable source of information for the period leading up to the fall of the Roman Republic. The works of Cicero have been published in numerous languages and formats from as early as the mid-15th-century; in fact, his work ‘De OfficiisÂ’ was notable for being the third book ever printed. (Baldwin, 590).This Latin set was published by Peter Van der Aa in Lyon in 1692 and was edited by the famous Dutch scholar Jacob Gronovius.
