BE IT REMEMBERED, That on the
sixth day of June, in the thirty-second year of the Independence of the United States of America, A. D. 1808, FRANCIS NICHOLS, of the said District, hath deposited in this office the title of a Book, the right whereof he claims as Proprietor, in the words following, to wit: "C. Crispi Sallustii Belli Catilinarii et Jugurthini Historia. Notis Brevissimis, Criticis, Historicis, Geographicis, &c. illustravit P. Wilson, LL. D. Litt. Græc. et Lat. &c. in Collegio Columtiano Neo-Eboracensi Professor."
In conformity to the Act of the Congress of the United States, entitled, "An Act for the Encouragement of Learning, by securing the Copies of Maps, Charts, and Books, to the Authors and Proprietors of such Copies during the Times therein mentioned;" and also to the Act, entitled, "An Act supplementary to an Act, entitled, An Act for the Encouragement of Learning, by securing the Copies of Maps, Charts, and Books, to the Authors and Proprietors of such Copies during the Times therein mentioned,' and extending the Benefits thereof to the Arts of Designing, Engraving, and Etching Historical and other Prints.”
IN hac Sallustii editione, textus doctissimi Cortii, ex Hunterino exemplari, Andreapoli impresso, exhibetur, pauculis, praesertim interpunctionibus, mutatis. Orthographia antiquior, & quaecunque Sallustii propria sunt, fidelissime retinentur.
OMNIS homines qui sese student praestare ceteris animalibus, summa ope niti decet, vitam silentio ne transeant, veluti pecora, quae natura dprona, atque ventri obedientia, finxit. Sed nostra omnis vis in animo et corpore eşita: animi imperio, corporis servitio magis utimur: falterum nobis cum dis, alterum cum belluis commune est. Quo mihi rectius videtur ingenii, quam virium opibus, gloriam quaerere; et, quoniam vita ipsa, qua fruimur, brevis est, "memoriam nostri iquam maxume longam efficere. Nam divitiarum et formae gloria fluxa atque fragilis; virtus clara aeternaque habetur.
a Omnis. The accusative plural, more usually written omnes. Nouns, whose genitive plural ends in ium, have es, is, or eis in the accusative plural. These accusatives in is, however, have their last syllable always long, because it originates from the dipthongal syllable eis which was the most ancient termination.
b Homines. Homo properly signifies one of the human species, and includes both sexes.
c Sese student præstare. A pleonasm for student præstare. d Prona. Bending, or stooping downward.
e Sita. Est is understood: in some copies it is expressed. The substantive verb is frequently understood in the best authors, particularly in Sallust.
f Alterum. Alter signifies one of two, alius one of many.
g Quo. Used for qua propter, wherefore.
Memoriam nostri. The remembrance of ourselves; memoriam nostram, our memory, referring to the mental faculty.
i Quam maxume longam. As long as possible.
