This early 16th century edition of Historiae Romanae is a redaction of a text by the ancient Roman historian Velleius Paterculus.  This edition focuses on just the Roman aspects of the author’s work, whereas Paterculus differed from many Roman historians and included events from the rest of the ancient world.  Ambrosius Holbein provided vivid visual details, including the title and dedication pages, publisher’s devices, and illustrated capital letters.
