Titi LIVII Historiae, Libri Tres Priores, Cum Annotationibus [LAT] free pdf Excerpt from Titi LIVII Historiae, Libri Tres Priores, Cum Annotationibus: Probatissimis Et Utilissimis, Ex Omnibus Prioribus Commentatoribus, Accurate Selectis Et Anglice Redditis The dignity and modesty of this preface, says Walker, is quite in unison with the character which Horace (Art. Poet.) gives of a good writer: Non fumum ex fulgore, sed ex fumo dare lucem, cogitat. Facturusne operae pretium sim.] The best editions and MSS. read, facturusne sim operae pretium, by which the hiatus of the present reading would be avoided- but the authority of Quinctilian, who asserts that Livy commences with part of an hexameter line, is sufficient to decide that this reading should not be introduced into the text, and considered genuine. Quippe qui.] Livy says, that he is not certain whether he will obtain any reward for his labour in writing this history - whether its merits be such as to secure the approbation of the present age and posterity- and that, even if he were, he would not venture to say so, because it has been, from time immemorial, a practice with every new writer of history, to boast that "his" work must excel that of his predecessors, as the facts are to be detailed with more certainty and truth, and "their" unpolished and antiquated style of writing (rudem vetustatem, ) excelled by the superior strength and elegance of the new production- and that, as the practice is so old (veterem), it has become vulgar and contemptible (vulgatum). Vulgatus, in Livy and Pliny, often has the same signification as vilis. In this way facturus operae pretium, and vulgatum, are explained by Walker and others- but on reflection it appears very doubtful, whether the first does not mean, "to make it worth the 'reader's' trouble and perusal," and the second, "common or general," which is the usual signification of vulgatus. Utcunque erit.] This refers to the first line. "However that shall be." Pro virili parte.] To the utmost of my power, like pro me, or in Greek. Et ipsum consuluisse.] "That I also (as well as other writers) have provided for the recollection of a people that ruled the world-" i.e. have taken care that they should be recollected. Me is sometimes, as here, suppressed before ipsum. - So Virg. Ecl. 1.: "Ille meas errare boves, ut cernis, et ipsumLudere, quae veliem, calamo permisit agresti."
