ATHENAEUS
The Learned Banqueters, 8 Volumes.
. Edited and translated by S. Douglas Olson, 2007-2012, ( Loeb Classical Library volumes 204, 208, 224,235, 274, 327, 345, 519 ) In The Learned Banqueters, Athenaeus describes a series of dinner parties at which the guests quote extensively from Greek literature. The work (which dates to the very end of the second century CE) is amusing reading and of extraordinary value as a treasury of quotations from works now lost. Athenaeus also preserves a wide range of information about different cuisines and foodstuffs; the music and entertainments that ornamented banquets; and the intellectual talk that was the heart of Greek conviviality. S. Douglas Olson has undertaken to produce a complete new edition of the work, replacing the previous seven-volume Loeb Athenaeus (published under the title Deipnosophists). Volume I: Books 1-3.106e, 624pp. Volume II: Books 3.106e-5,, 592pp. Volume III: Books 6-7, 592pp. Volume IV: Books 8-10.420e , 512pp. Volume V: Books 10.420e-11, 528pp. Volume VI,Books 12-13.594b, 464pp. Volume VII, Books 13.594b-14,416pp. Volume VIII, Book 15.

AD 150 - 235, was born at Nicaea in Bithynia in Asia Minor. On the death of his father (Roman governor of Cilicia) he went in 180 to Rome, entered the Senate, and under the emperor Commodus was an advocate. He held high offices, becoming a close friend of several emperors. He was made governor of Pergamum and Smyrna; consul in 220; proconsul of Africa; governor of Dalmatia and then of Pannonia; and consul again in 229. Of the eighty books of Dio's great work Roman History, covering the era from the legendary landing of Aeneas in Italy to the reign of Alexander Severus (AD 222 - 235), we possess Books 36 - 60 (36 and 55 - 60 have gaps), which cover the years 68 BC - AD 47. The missing portions are partly supplied, for the earlier gaps by Zonaras, who relies closely on Dio, and for some later gaps (Book 35 onwards) by John Xiphilinus (of the eleventh century). There are also many excerpts. The facilities for research afforded by Dio's official duties and his own industry make him a very vital source for Roman history of the last years of the republic and the first four emperors.

DIEFFENBACH, P.,
Ueber Den Gott Cautopates
0. und seine Beziehung zum Mithdrasdienste, nebst Nachrichten ueber einige zu Friedberg gefundenen und dahin einschlagenden Alterthuemer.[Archiv. d. hist. Vereins, 6.Bd. 2. Heft]. Off-print, no place, no date [c. 1845]; pp. 243 - 262, with folding lithogrphed plate; cont. blue sugar-paper wrappers, bookplate of Bibliotheca Lindesiana on front paste-down; slight foxing; Inscribed and signed by the author on the front wrapper. Dieffenbach relates the history of scholarly aluusions to a god "Cautopates" being revered in the Roman empire, although there had been scant evidence, and here writes up the unearthing of his image with an inscription during construction work on the railway station in Friedberg. He takes Cautopates to be another name for Mithras, shown on the folding plate with his cap.

HIPPOCRATES
Ancient Medicine. Airs, Waters, Places. Epidemics I & Iii. The Oath, the Sacred Disease. The Art. Breaths. Law. And Other Works . 8 Volumes.
. 8 Volumes (Loeb classical library volumes 147, 148,149,159,472, 473, 477, 482,) bi-lingual texts Ancient Greek-English. Hippocrates, said to have been born in Cos in or before 460 B.C. learned medicine and philosophy and traveled widely as a medical doctor and teacher. Of the roughly 70 medical treatises collected under his name--the Hippocratic Collection--many are not by him; even the famous Hippocratic Oath (in Volume I of the Loeb edition) may not be his. But he was undeniably the "Father of Medicine." And the treatises in the Hippocratic Collection are essential sources of information about the practice of medicine in antiquity and about Greek theories concerning the human body. VOLUME I. ANCIENT MEDICINE. AIRS, WATERS, PLACES. EPIDEMICS I & III. THE OATH. PRECEPTS. NUTRIMENT Translated by W. H. S. Jones 1923/8th printing/432pp. VOLUME II. PROGNOSTIC. REGIMEN IN ACUTE DISEASES.

EPIDEMICS II, IV-VII Edited and translated by Wesley D. Smith In this seventh volume of the ongoing Loeb edition of the Hippocratic Collection, Wesley Smith presents the first modern English translation of Books 2 and 4-7 of the Epidemics (the other two books are already available in the first volume). In the casebooks and notes that make up the seven books called Epidemics--the title originally meant "visits"--we can watch ancient physicians observing patients, noting and pondering symptoms, evaluating treatments, and developing theories about the body. They appear to be physicians' notebooks from several areas of the Aegean basin. Praise for Volume VII: "Since Littré's edition.the texts of the Epidemics, with the exception of I, III and VI, had only appeared in an edition by Pournaropoulos, and this is the first complete English translation.It is thus of enormous value in making all the books of the Epidemics available to those without a sufficient knowledge of Greek or French--or without access to the Littré edition. It is also a welcome further step towards a complete Loeb Hippocrates, and therefore towards a much-needed available and affordable edition of the Hippocratic Corpus." -- /430pp. /map/index.

0. 1571.. vom juedischen Krieg .. alles aus dem urspruenglichen Griechischen Exemplar .. verteutscht. Two parts in one volume, Frankfurt, 1571; folio; [5ll] including engraved title-page, [1l.] [blank], 348 ll, with 83 large wood-cut illustrations, + 177 ll. with 14 wood-cut illustrations [making 97 woodcuts in all], final leaf with colophon & large printer's device of Georg Raben/und Weygand Hanen Erben; contemporary pigskin dated 1572, decorative brass bosses and holders for the now-lost metal clasps; the pigskin of the front hinge cracked but holding firmly, slanting crack in the skin on the front board, with slight loss of surface, another small surface hole the size of a small coin on front board; pale library stamp on front blank and verso of last page, scattered marginal library stamps (very small)); contents lightly browned, with a stabhole in c. 80 leaves which affectsa few letters. The front board - somewhat darkened - bears the title in capitals, and the date 1572 in a once dyed or painted central panel; the blind-stamped ornament of the boards is clearer on the brighter rear board: it includes panels of acorns, fleurs-de-lys, and small historical portraits. This copy is made particularly interesting by a contemporary full-page manuscript ex-libris in black, red, yellow, and silver with a full-page armorial crest and the name "Johan Tobing her Leonardes Son" painted directly on to the front paste-down. The name of a much later English owner is written neatly in small letters above, in the top margin. The book later passed to Stoke-on-Trent Public Library, who consigned it with other books to auction in 2006. Text in German.

LAKS, A. & GLENN W. MOST ( EDS AND TRANSLATORS)
Early Greek Philosopy 9 Volumes
. The fragments and testimonia of the early Greek philosophers (often labeled the Presocratics) have always been not only a fundamental source for understanding archaic Greek culture and ancient philosophy but also a perennially fresh resource that has stimulated Western thought until the present day. This new systematic conception and presentation of the evidence differs in three ways from Hermann Diels's groundbreaking work, as well as from later editions: it renders explicit the material's thematic organization; it includes a selection from such related bodies of evidence as archaic poetry, classical drama, and the Hippocratic corpus; and it presents an overview of the reception of these thinkers until the end of antiquity. Volume I contains introductory and reference materials essential for using all other parts of the edition. Volumes II and III include chapters on ancient doxography, background, and the Ionians from Pherecydes to Heraclitus. Volumes IV and V present western Greek thinkers from the Pythagoreans to Hippo. Volumes VI and VII comprise later philosophical systems and their aftermath in the fifth and early fourth centuries. Volumes VIII and IX present fifth-century reflections on language, rhetoric, ethics, and politics (the so-called sophists and Socrates) and conclude with an appendix on philosophy and philosophers in Greek drama. Volume I, 258pp. Introductory and Reference Materials; Volume II Beginnings and Early Ionian Thinkers, Part 1, 400pp.; Volume III Early Ionian Thinkers, Part 2, 352pp.; Volume IV Western Greek Thinkers, Part 1, 464pp.; Volume V Western Greek Thinkers, Part 2, 816pp.; Volume VI Later Ionian and Athenian Thinkers, Part 1, 448pp.; Volume VII Later Ionian and Athenian Thinkers, Part 2, 512pp.; Volume VIII Sophists, Part 1, 576pp.; Volume IX Sophists, Part 2, 370pp. ( Loeb Classical Library volumes 524 to 532 , bi-lingual Greek-English ) New volumes in pristine jackets.
