Most widely held works by Roberto Calderan
The romance of Alexander the Great by Pseudo-Callisthenes( Book )

7 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in Latin and English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... Alexander is the protagonist of a large number of works in both prose and verse as well as being the hero of countless folktales. The best known of these books in modern Greece is the Book of Alexander the Great (in Greek, He Phyllada tou Megalexantrou). It was first printed in Venice in 1670, though the earliest surviving copy is from the edition of 1699 ... The standard edition for most of the twentieth century was that of A.A. Pallis (1935) ... His edition was based on a nineteenth-century version; in 1977 a new scholarly edition was prepared by G. Veloudis, and this is now the standard ... The 'Middle Greek' version is the proximate source of the Phyllada, which is written in a simple, folksy form of modern Greek rather than the more elevated style of its predecessors."--Introduction, p. vii-ix

La geste d'Alexandre le Grand : version latine by Julius Valerius( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in Latin and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le Roman d'Alexandre raconte les hauts faits d'Alexandre le Grand, puisant pour ce faire tant aux ouvrages historiographiques qu'à la tradition populaire. Ce texte est connu au travers de nombreuses versions différentes, élaborées au fil du temps dans les langues les plus diverses. Elles ont peu à peu contribué à façonner l'image légendaire du souverain macédonien. Cet ouvrage a pour objectif d'offrir un accès aisé à la première version latine connue de ce monument littéraire, traduction d'un original grec perdu, mise au compte d'un certain Julius Valerius par les manuscrits qui la transmettent. Une traduction en français, précédée d'une introduction générale à l'œuvre et à son auteur, permet de redécouvrir ce roman trop négligé; un appareil de notes, centré sur la langue et le style de l'auteur, met en évidence ses spécificités lexicales et syntaxiques."--Page 4 of cover
