Most widely held works by John Warrington
Metaphysics by Aristotle( Book )

40 editions published between 1956 and 2007 in English and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aristotle, great Greek philosopher, researcher, reasoner, and writer, born at Stagirus in 384 BCE, was the son of Nicomachus, a physician, and Phaestis. He studied under Plato at Athens and taught there (367-347); subsequently he spent three years at the court of a former pupil, Hermeias, in Asia Minor and at this time married Pythias, one of Hermeias's relations. After some time at Mitylene, in 343-2 he was appointed by King Philip of Macedon to be tutor of his teen-aged son Alexander. After Philip's death in 336, Aristotle became head of his own school (of 'Peripatetics'), the Lyceum at Athens. Because of anti-Macedonian feeling there after Alexander's death in 323, he withdrew to Chalcis in Euboea, where he died in 322. Nearly all the works Aristotle prepared for publication are lost; the priceless ones extant are lecture-materials, notes, and memoranda (some are spurious). They can be categorized as follows: I Practical: Nicomachean Ethics; Great Ethics (Magna Moralia); Eudemian Ethics; Politics; Economics (on the good of the family); On Virtues and Vices. II Logical: Categories; Analytics (Prior and Posterior); Interpretation; Refutations used by Sophists; Topica. III Physical: Twenty-six works (some suspect) including astronomy, generation and destruction, the senses, memory, sleep, dreams, life, facts about animals, etc. IV Metaphysics: on being as being. V Art: Rhetoric and Poetics. VI Other works including the Constitution of Athens; more works also of doubtful authorship. VII Fragments of various works such as dialogues on philosophy and literature; and of treatises on rhetoric, politics and metaphysics."--Publisher description

The Gallic War, and other writings 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 )

35 editions published between 1900 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 283 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

Satires by Persius( Book )

2 editions published between 1954 and 1992 in English and held by 46 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

Cathedral and crusade, studies of the medieval church, 1050-1350 by Henri Daniel-Rops( Book )

6 editions published between 1957 and 1963 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deals with the period 1050-1350, an age that saw the rise of Norman and Gothic architecture; the birth of the universities; the development of Christian philosophy and theology; the advance of material civilization to a degree hitherto unrecognized; and, above all, the conversion of northern, central and eastern Europe. After summarizing the period in question and reviewing that faith which permeated and inspired the acitivity of men high and low, the author proceeds to study in detail special aspects of those three centuries. There are fascinating chapters on St. Bernard of Clairvaux, on medieval reforms within the Church, on relations between Church and State, on medieval morality, on the Church's role in the domain of thought, on the building of the Cathedrals, on the Byzantine Schism, on the Crusades, on the seldom-told story of the missions, on heresy and the debacle of the fourteenth century
