Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Sallust's History of the Conspiracy of Catiline, and Jugurthine War: With English Notes; For the Use of Schools

This introductory sketch of the life and writings of Sallust, is taken chie¿y from Dunlop's History of Roman Literature. Vol. Ii., pp. 81 - 94.

Sallust passed the close of his life, dividing his time between literary avocations and the society of his friends, among whom he numbered Lucullus, Messala, and Cornelius Nepos. He died at the age of fifty one, 35 years B. C.

Of the character of Sallust, very different opinions have been form ed, and the sources of information on the subject, which can now be reached, are not the most reliable. That he was a man of loose morals, is evident; and also that he rapaciously plundered his province, like other Roman governors of the day. But, considering who were his friends, and the studies he pursued, it seems highly improbable that he indulged in that excessive libertinism which has been attributed to him, on the erroneous supposition that he was the Sallust mentioned by Horace, in the first book 'of his Satires.
