This is Volume 5 (Somnium Scipionis) of 7 Volumes. From the Preface: "CICERO, who was almost the most celebrated orator of antiquity, was born B.C. 107, and was educated by Crassus. He served as a Roman warrior under Sylla, and subsequently became a philosopher. After many years he entered political life, becoming Quaestor of Sicily, then Edile, and finally Consul. At the last he retired to Tusculum, and was assassinated B.C. 43. He left many classical works, among which are the beautiful essays on "Friendship" and on "Old Age." His only mystical work was the Somnium Scipionis, or Vision of Scipio, of which a translation by L: 0. is here Produced, with an Essay upon its connection with the doctrines taught in the ancient Mysteries."
