“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”

― Marcus Tullius Cicero

 

Two fascinating ancient Roman works bound as one! This incredible, post-incunable features the most famous work of rhetoric ‘Rhetorica ad Herennium’ which, over the years, has been attributed to various authors including Cicero and Lucius Cornificius. In addition to ‘Rhetorica ad Herennium,’ Cicero’s ‘De Inventione’ is also included.

 

‘Rhetorica ad Herennium’ is the oldest surviving book on rhetoric and is still recognized today as an important book on persuasion. The unknown author of the book teaches on various topics including working through legal controversies, how to praise or condemn a person, intricacies of professional language, as well as how to speak in a day-to-day language. Cicero’s ‘De Inventione’ is the first book to record the term ‘liberal arts’ in reference to rhetoric and speech. He discusses the origins of rhetoric and proper use of orations.

 

This 1509 printing was published by Pincio in Venice. Even though this book features two of the most important works of rhetoric, the commentary of Franciscus Maturanzio is highly desirable and provides perspective from a 15th-century Italian humanist.
