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.

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.

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.

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.

LUCIAN
Works in 8 Volumes.
. 8 Volumes (Bi-lingual Texts - Loeb Classical Library volumes 14 ,54, 130, 162, 302, 430, 431, 432 ) Satire blends with comic art in Lucian's tales, fantasies, and dialogues. With ebullient wit he mocks teachers of literature, the various philosophical schools, popular religions, historians and writers, the Olympian gods, and the foibles of mortals. In The Dream he jocularly recounts his own career. Native of Samosata on the Euphrates, Lucian traveled widely in the Roman Empire as far as Gaul. His 80 extant works (published here in 8 volumes) offer insight on the intellectual world of the second century AD along with mischievous and sophisticated entertainment. VOLUME I. PHALARIS. HIPPIAS OR THE BATH. DIONYSUS. HERACLES. AMBER OR THE SWANS. THE FLY. NIGRINUS. DEMONAX. THE HALL. MY NATIVE LAND. OCTOGENARIANS. A TRUE STORY. SLANDER. THE CONSONANTS AT LAW. SYMPOSIUM, OR THE LAPITHS Translated by A. M. Harmon From Lucian comes a comic view of the Greek symposium, in his piece titled Carousal in Harmon's translation. The great satirist crowds into his dinner party Stoics, Epicureans, Peripatetics, and Cynics--but there is as much high-spirited clowning as philosophy to be relished here. This first of the eight-volume edition of Lucian contains fourteen other pieces, including one of the earliest examples of science fiction, A True Story, the tallest of tall stories about a voyage to the moon. originally published in 1913 /486pp. /index .

PLATO
Works in a Bi-Lingual English-Latin Edition in 12 Volumes
. Translators: H N Fowler, W R M Lamb, P Shorey, R G Bury The 2 first volumes of The Republic were issued in new editions during 2013 and volume 1: Euthyphro. Apology. Crito. Phaedo in 2017. These 3 were translated by Chris Emlyn-Jones and William Preddy (Loeb classical library volumes, 36,165,166, 167, 237, 276, 123, 164, 234, 187, 192, 201) new set, hardbacks in d/j. Re-issues of the editions originally publshed between 1914 and 1935. The four works in volume 1 (2017) recount the circumstances of Socrates' trial and execution in 399 BC. In Euthyphro, set in the weeks before the trial, Socrates and Euthyphro attempt to define holiness. In Apology, Socrates answers his accusers at trial and unapologetically defends his philosophical career. In Crito, a discussion of justice and injustice explains Socrates' refusal of Crito's offer to finance his escape from prison. And in Phaedo, Socrates discusses the concept of an afterlife and offers arguments for the immortality of the soul. This edition, which replaces the original Loeb edition by Harold North Fowler, offers text, translation, and annotation that are fully current with modern scholarship.

He was married and the father of one daughter and four sons. He appears as a man of kindly character and independent thought, studious and learned. Plutarch wrote on many subjects. Most popular have always been the 46 Parallel Lives, biographies planned to be ethical examples in pairs (in each pair, one Greek figure and one similar Roman), though the last four lives are single. All are invaluable sources of our knowledge of the lives and characters of Greek and Roman statesmen, soldiers and orators. Plutarch's many other varied extant works, about 60 in number, are known as Moralia or Moral Essays. They are of high literary value, besides being of great use to people interested in philosophy, ethics, and religion. WE SUPPLY THE LATEST EDITIONS/REPRINTS. new hardbacks in fine dust jackets.

SENECA
Moral Essays and Other Titles (See Below) 10 Loeb Volumes Together
. (Loeb Classical Library volumes (BI-LINGUAL TEXTS) 214, 254, 310, 75, 76, 77, 78, 450, 457, 62, ) Moral essays: 3 volumes. Translated by John W. Basore Seneca's Stoic philosophy is captured in his Moral Essays. On Providence (which tries to answer the question: why, if god is omnipotent, do good people suffer), On Constancy (on Stoic self-sufficiency), On Anger, and On Clemency (addressed to the emperor Nero) are included in the first of this three-volume edition. Volume II contains On the Good Life (outlining the Stoic program of living according to nature), On Leisure, On Tranquility (in which Seneca suggests a way of life that will bring contentment), On the Brevity of Life (which argues that intellectual pursuits and a proper understanding of time will make full even a short life), and the three Consolations (to Marcia, to Helvia, to Polybius). On Benefits (in Volume III) discusses what constitutes a favour, how it should be given and how received, and the nature of gratitude and ingratitude. VOLUME I. DE PROVIDENTIA. DE CONSTANTIA. DE IRA. DE CLEMENTIA , 470pp. VOLUME II. DE CONSOLATIONE AD MARCIAM. DE VITA BEATA. DE OTIO. DE TRANQUILLITATE ANIMI. DE BREVITATE VITAE. DE CONSOLATIONE AD POLYBIUM. DE CONSOLATIONE AD HELVIAM , 508pp. /index. VOLUME III. DE BENEFICIIS , 540pp. EPISTLES: 3 Volumes Translated by R. M. Gummere Probably the most attractive of Seneca's works is this collection of 124 Epistles or Letters to Lucilius. Here Seneca writes occasionally about technical problems of philosophy, but more often in a relaxed style about moral and ethical questions, relating them to personal experiences: visits to gladiatorial shows and seaside resorts, the rigors of travel, the loss of friends, and the like. The reader is thus transported to the first century Roman scene while sampling the Stoic philosopher's thoughts about the good life. The Loeb edition is in three volumes: VOLUME IV. EPISTLES 1-65 , 484pp. VOLUME V. EPISTLES 66-92 , 486pp. VOLUME VI. EPISTLES 93-124 , 470pp. NATURALES QUAESTIONES 2 Volumes Translated by T. H. Corcoran VOLUME VII. BOOKS I-III , 328pp. VOLUME X.
