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.

DIEFFENBACH, P.,

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.

Some slight browning to corenrs and inner margins of initial and rear few pages and very occasionally in the margins. In a dark brown new quarter morocco binding, spine with 5 raised bands and red title label, cloth covered boards, new end papers . John Baptist Jackson (1701-1754) trained as a wood engraver before traveling to Paris and, finally, to Venice where he became proficient in the chiaroscuro woodcut technique printed in several colours. He is noted chiefly for his major work comprising 24 chiaroscuro woodcuts after paintings by Venetian masters made from 1739 to 1743 and published in Venice in a bound volume in 1745, now considered one of the greatest examples of 18th-century print-making. When Jackson returned to London in 1745 he stopped producing his woodcuts and instead began to work in textile and wallpaper patterning. These efforts did not succeed and he issued a book in 1754 entitled An Essay on the Invention of Engraving and Printing in Chiaro Oscuro, but did not produce any further work .
