Caesar, Gaius Julius (100-44 BC), Roman general and statesman, who laid the foundations of the Roman imperial system. Early Life: Born in Rome on July 12 or 13, 100 BC, Caesar belonged to the prestigious Julian clan; yet from early childhood he knew controversy. His uncle by marriage was Gaius Marius, leader of the Populares. This party supported agrarian reform and was opposed by the reactionary Optimates, a senatorial faction. Marius was seven times consul (chief magistrate), and the last year he held office, just before his death in 86 BC, he exacted a terrifying toll on the Optimates. At the same time he saw to it that young Caesar was appointed flamen dialis, one of an archaic priesthood with no power.
The original hard-back book was written by one of the most renown and prolific writer-historians of his time, Jacob Abbott of Brunswick, Maine. It was one of a set of 32 volumes authored by Jacob and John Abbott, brothers, in the mid- to late-1800s. The set was re-published in the early 1900s, and not again until 2000, when GoldenWest Marketing undertook the project of re-printing 8 of these rare and genealogically valuable books.
The 278 pages of the original hard-bound book have been photocopied and printed two to a page and placed in a soft cover with a plastic-comb binding, affordable book.
