1744 3 Rare Book Lot Cicero Familiar Letters Charles Rollin Treaty on Education

A fine collection of rare books bound in vellum including Cicero’s ‘Familiar Letters’ and a treatise by Charles Rollin on the systems of teaching. Rollin’s famous treaty “Traite des etudes” disregarded medieval teaching traditions and helped refocus education in France in the early 18th-century. ‘Epistolarum’ by Cicero to Roman public figures are considered the most reliable source of information for the period leading up the fall of the Roman Republic.
