The diary of Samuel Pepys : a new and complete transcription by Samuel Pepys( Book )

51 editions published between 1910 and 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""The diary which Samuel Pepys kept from January 1660 to May 1669 ... is one of our greatest historical records and ... a major work of English literature," writes the renowned historian Paul Johnson. A witness to the coronation of Charles II, the Great Plague of 1665, and the Great Fire of 1666, Pepys chronicled the events of his day. Originally written in a cryptic shorthand, Pepys's diary provides an astonishingly frank and diverting account of political intrigues and naval, church, and cultural affairs, as well as a quotidian journal of daily life in London during the Restoration."--Jacket
The Battle for Gaul by Julius Caesar( Book )

3 editions published between 1954 and 1955 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Caesar portrayed his invasion of Gaul as being a defensive pre-emptive action, most historians agree that the wars were fought primarily to boost Caesar's political career and to pay off his massive debts. Even so, Gaul was extremely important to Rome, as they had been attacked many times by the Gauls. Conquering Gaul allowed Rome to secure the natural border of the river Rhine. Caesar painstakingly describes his military campaign, and this is it is still the most important historical source on the Gaul campaign. -- Amazon

Paston letters by John Warrington( Book )

29 editions published between 1900 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Pastons of Norfolk left behind them, in the earliest great collection of family letters in English, an incomparable picture of life in fifteenth-century England -- it's private ambitions, anxieties, hopes, and loves in the midst of political turmoil, local anarchy, and war abroad and at home. The letters, with their wealth of competent, practical writing, illustrate as no other documents can the capacity of the English language at a critical period of its history. Though the letters have long been widely known, they have not been newly edited for over fifty years. Professor Davis has chosen 95 of the most interesting letters, by 26 different writers, and has edited them afresh from the manuscripts, with an introduction, selected criticism, explanatory notes, and a glossary"--Jacket

7 editions published between 1953 and 1965 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Gallic Wars were a series of military campaigns waged by the Roman proconsul Julius Caesar against several Gallic tribes, Galli being the Latin equivalent of Celt. These tribes, along with many others, made up the confederation of tribes that was the Celtic nation, or the Celtic Tribe of Tribes. Rome's war against the Gallic tribes lasted from 58 BC to 50 BC and culminated in the decisive Battle of Alesia in 52 BC, in which a complete Roman victory resulted in the expansion of the Roman Republic over the whole of Gaul (mainly present day France and Belgium). The wars paved the way for Julius Caesar to become the sole ruler of the Roman Republic."--Wikipedia
Satires by Persius( Book )

2 editions published between 1954 and 1992 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the ancient world, the Satires belonged to a small class of works which remained in constant circulation. They were read in the schools, were commented upon by scholars, and were forever the subject of controversy. This translation boasts several advantages over previous English versions : it is the work of a poet rather than a Latinist, and it offers a faithful rendering of Persius' franker passages which the Victorians never dared to translate fully
