English: Title page of Lucan’s De bello civili (alias Pharsalia), edited by Theodor Pulmann (also Pulman or Poelmann), printed by the Officina Plantiniana (Plantin) and Johannes/Jan Moretus in Antwerp in 1592. On the title page you see the Plantin printer’s emblema. On the title page and on the endpaper at the left side different old and new owner notes. — Lucan’s poem was always especially popular in times of civil wars or other kinds of general conflicts. This little edition is a good example, because it was prepared and published during the French Wars of Religion (1562–98), as Theodor Pulmann mentions in his preface. He explains the special actuality of Lucan by this fact.
Deutsch: Titelseite von Lucans Epos De bello civili (auch Pharsalia), herausgegeben von Theodor Pulmann (auch Pulman oder Poelmann), gedruckt von der Officina Plantiniana (Plantin) und Johannes/Jan Moretus in Antwerpen 1592. Auf der Titelseite ist die Plantin-Druckermarke zu sehen. Auf der Titelseite und auf dem Vorsatz links verschiedene alte Besitzeinträge. — Lucans Epos war immer in Zeiten des Bürgerkrieges oder anderer genereller Konflikte besonders populär. Diese kleine Ausgabe ist ein gutes Beispiel dafür, weil sie während der französischen Hugenottenkriege (1562–1598) erschien, wie Theodor Pulmann in seinem Vorwort erwähnt. Er begründet damit die besondere Aktualität gerade dieses Dichters.
