Most widely held works by D. R Shackleton Bailey
Letters to Atticus by Marcus Tullius Cicero( Book )

79 editions published between 1965 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,825 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In letters to his friend Atticus, Cicero (106-43 BCE) reveals himself as to no other of his correspondents except, perhaps, his brother, and vividly depicts a momentous period in Roman history, marked by the rise of Julius Caesar and the downfall of the Republic
Onomasticon to Cicero's treatises by D. R Shackleton Bailey( )

26 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Silvae by P. Papinius Statius( Book )

32 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Statius' Silvae, thirty-two occasional poems, were written probably between 89 and 96 A.D. Here the poet congratulates friends, consoles mourners, sends thanks, admires a monument or artistic object, describes a memorable scene. The verse is light in touch, with a distinct picture quality. Statius gives us in these impromptu poems clear images of Domitian's Rome."--BOOK JACKET
Onomasticon to Cicero's letters by D. R Shackleton Bailey( )

Philippics by Marcus Tullius Cicero( Book )

28 editions published between 1985 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 945 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We know more of Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 BCE), lawyer, orator, politician and philosopher, than of any other Roman. Besides much else, his work conveys the turmoil of his time, and the part he played in a period that saw the rise and fall of Julius Caesar in a tottering republic

Epigrams by Martial( Book )

3 editions published between 1993 and 2015 in English and held by 841 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was to celebrate the opening of the Roman Colosseum in A.D. 80 that Martial published his first book of poems, "On the Spectacles." Written with satiric wit and a talent for the memorable phrase, the poems in this collection record the broad spectacle of shows in the new arena. The great Latin epigrammist's twelve subsequent books capture the spirit of Roman life - both public and private - in vivid detail. Fortune hunters and busybodies, orators and lawyers, schoolmasters and street hawkers, jugglers and acrobats, doctors and plagiarists, beautiful slaves, and generous hosts are among the diverse characters who populate his verses. Martial is a keen and sharp-tongued observer of Roman Society. His pen brings into crisp relief a wide variety of scenes and events: the theater and public games, life in the countryside, a rich debauchee's banquet, lions in the amphitheater, the eruption of Vesuvius. The epigrams are sometimes obscene, in the tradition of the genre, sometimes warmly affectionate or amusing, and always pointed. Like his contemporary Statius, though, Martial shamelessly flatters his patron Domitian, one of Rome's worst-reputed emperors. D.R. Shackleton Bailey now gives us in three volumes, a reliable modern translation of Martial's often difficult Latin, eliminating many misunderstandings in previous versions. The text is mainly that of his highly praised Teubner edition of 1990

Memorable doings and sayings by Valerius Maximus( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in English and Latin and held by 784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Valerius Maximus compiled his handbook of notable deeds and sayings during the reign of Tiberius (14-37 CE). The collection was very popular in the Renaissance and has recently attracted renewed scholarly attention. Valerius arranges his instructive examples in short chapters, each focused on a particular virtue, vice, religious practice, or traditional custom--including Omens, Dreams, Anger, Cruelty, Bravery, Fidelity, Gratitude, Friendship, Parental Love. The moral undercurrent of this collection is readily apparent. But Valerius tells us that the book's purpose is practical: he decided to select worthwhile material from famous writers so that people looking for illustrative examples might be spared the trouble of research. Whatever the author's intention, his book is an interesting source of information on Roman attitudes toward religion and moral values in the first century. - Publisher
Letters to friends by Marcus Tullius Cicero( Book )

17 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in English and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

CICEREO was a prodigious letter writer, and happily a splendid treasury of his letters has come down to us. Collected and in part published not long after his death, over 800 of them were rediscovered by Petrarch and other Italian humanists in the fourteenth century. Among classical texts this correspondence is unparalleled: nowhere else do we get such an intimate look at the life of a prominent Roman and his social world, or such a vivid sense of a momentous period in Roman history, years marked by the rise of Julius Caesar and the downfall of the Republic. The 435 letters collected here represent Ciceros correspondence with friends and acquaintances over a period of twenty years, from 62 BC, when Ciceros political career was at its peak, to 43, the year he was put to death by the forces of Octavian and Mark Antony. They range widely in substance and style, from official dispatches and semi-public letters of political importance to casual notes that chat with close friends about travels and projects, domestic pleasures and books, and questions currently debated. This new Loeb Classical Library edition of the Letters to Friends, in three volumes brings together D.R. Shackleton Baileys standard Latin text, now updated, and a revised version of his much admired translation first published by Penguin Books. This authoritative edition complements the new Loeb edition of Ciceros Letters to Atticus, also translated by Shackleton Bailey
Profile of Horace by D. R Shackleton Bailey( Book )

18 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume offers new insight into the poetry of Horace. In a reading of all the poetry, but focusing especially on problematic areas, the author examines Horace's art of self-presentation. A variety of themes are elucidated, from the poet's relations with his patron to Roman sexual attitudes. Close scrutiny is given to about 30 passages which the author claims have been misread
Letters to Quintus and Brutus ; Letter fragments ; Letter to Octavian ; Invectives ; Handbook of electioneering by Marcus Tullius Cicero( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cicero had an affectionate relationship with his only brother, Quintus, down to the closing years of their lives. The letters from Cicero to him in this collection offer an intimate look at their world. Cicero's close friendship with the intensely intellectual Brutus was signalized by Cicero's dedication of his prized Orator to Brutus. The correspondence between the two collected here dates from the spring and summer of 43, and it conveys some of the drama of the period following the assassination of Julius Caesar."--Jacket
The lesser declamations by Quintilian( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Lesser Declamations perhaps date from the second century CE and are perhaps derived from Quintilian. The collection originally consisted of 388 sample cases for legal training. 145 survive. Comments and suggestions the instructor adds to his model speeches for fictitious court cases offer insight into Roman law and education

From the first edition in 1985, Shackleton Bailey improved and updated his work with each new edition, especially with the 4th revised edition in 2001. Thus the editor has put his Horatius text on course to continue being used and disseminated in the coming decades
