He figured as an exemplary military leader. The politician and then tyrant Caesar however was much more controversial in Europe, that was torn apart by bloody religious and civil wars. His dictatorship remained problematic, though some justified his usurpation of power as the only way out of turmoils of the Roman republic. § The anonymous editor of this edition of the works of Gaius Julius Caesar recommends in the preface the Roman historian for his style, which is 'kurz, nett und deutlich'. The author himself and the subject will also have great appeal for young students, 'was die Sachen anbetrifft, so sind seine (Caesar's) eigene Verrichtungen in Krieg und Friedens-Zeiten allen Umständen nach so eigentlich vorgetragen und von ihm selbst aufgezeichnet worden, dass ich nicht weiss ob eine junges erwecktes Gemüth selber mehr zur reinen Zierlichkeit der lateinischen Sprache, oder zur Erkenntniss menschlicher passionen und der politischen Klugheit nutzen könne'. (Vorrede, p. a2 recto) § At the end is an 'Index geographicus', an 'Index rerum et latinitatis' and a 'Teutsches Register'. Map 1 depicts Gallia, 2 Italia, 3 Macedonia, Thessalia & Epirus, 4 Asia Minor, 5 Sicily and Africa, 6 Spain) (Collation: pi1 frontispiece, a8 (minus blank leaf a8), b4; A-2U8, 6 folding maps; page numbers 385/6 skipped between gathering 2A & 2B, nothing missing, everything regular)) (Photographs on request)
