Guide to Greece by Pausanias( Book )

12 editions published between 1794 and 2006 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written in the second century AD by a Greek traveler for a predominantly Roman audience, Pausanias' "Guide to Greece" is an extraordinarily literate and well-informed guidebook. A study of buildings, traditions and myth, it describes with precision and eloquence the glory of classical Greece shortly before its ultimate decline in the third century. This volume, the first of two, concerns the five provinces of central Greece, with an account of cities including Athens, Corinth and Thebes and a compelling depiction of the Oracle at Delphi. Along the way, Pausanias recounts Greek legends that are unknown from any other source and quotes a wealth of classical literature and poetry that would otherwise have been lost. An inspiration to Byron and Shelley, the "Guide to Greece" remains one of the most influential travel books ever written

The Republic of Plato by Plato( Book )

17 editions published between 1888 and 2010 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is Thomas Taylor's adept translation of Plato's Republic. Plato's crowning achievement of art and philosophy. The idea that runs through the Republic is that the individual presents almost the same features and qualties as society, on a smaller scale, and in his argument Plato first considers the state and thence makes his deductions as to the individual. Besides the enduring value of the Republic as a work of art, its philosophical and ethical teaching is of particular interest in the present disordered condition of social and speculative ideas." -- Publisher's blurb
