A striking bookplate: Alexander Grant, Scottish and English parliamentarian from his copy (signed and dated by him, 1697) of the surviving works of Dionysius Halicarnarssensis, one of the primary sources for the accounts of the foundation of Rome and the myth of Romulus and Remus. A handsome printing in in Greek and Roman types mostly in parallel of Dionysius, the Greek historian and rhetorician who moved to Rome around 30 BCE and flourished during the reign of Augustus Caesar. He was in fact a source for both Livy and Plutarch. A highlight from our firsts London catalogue here or read the full description here
