Ciceronis Epistolarum Delectus free pdf Excerpt from Ciceronis Epistolarum Delectus: A Selection From Cicero's Letters Illustrating the Contemporary History of Rome, With Notes and Introductions The following selection of Cicero's Letters will be found to differ from others that have preceded it in this respect - that all the letters selected have some bearing on the public events of Cicero's life. I have accordingly omitted many interesting letters to be found in most collections, either as repeating matter already given, or as containing mere personal and domestic history. It has been my object to place before the reader, as far as can be gathered from the unfortunately incomplete collection of Cicero's correspondence, a connected series of letters bearing on the great political crisis of the years A.U.C. 688-710. The breaks that occur in the correspondence are filled by introductions to the several letters, and more especially to the great divisions into which they naturally fall. I have also endeavoured to smooth the difficulties which attend the chronology of the later periods of this correspondence by Tables of Dates prefixed to Letters XLVII. and LXXXVI. These tables are not so complete as I should wish- but the defect will be readily forgiven by those who have attempted a similar task. I shall welcome any corrections or additions of scholars which may make my work more complete in this and in other respects. Throughout it is assumed that the student of these letters has some good history to refer to- for without a competent knowledge of the history of the later republic, the reader will find the letters of Cicero unintelligible.
