Summary
First pocket ed. of a study by the Roman philosopher, Macrobius, of Cicero's Dream of Scipio, a dream-vision in which Publius Cornelius Scipio Aemilianus meets his adopted grandfather, Publius Cornelius Scipio Africanus, hero of the Second Punic War. As the younger Scipio journeys through the spheres of the universe, he offers commentary on various topics, including cosmography, geography, time, interpretation of dreams, and Pythagorean thought. Cf. G. Sarton's Introd. to the history of science (1:385); C.R. Beazley's Dawn of modern geography (1:343), and G.H.T. Kimble's Geog. in the Middle Ages (p. 8)
