The Battle for Gaul by Julius Caesar( Book )

3 editions published between 1954 and 1955 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few figures in the history of man have had more to do with the shaping of our present civilization than Julius Caesar. A towering political leader, a military genius, and a skilled writer, he deserves a fate better than that of being a subject of an unwilling schoolboy's Latin lesson. Those readers who have long forgotten their Latin will find in this book new and sound perspectives on this important man, for there are few books that provide a better, more interesting picture of mankind at a historical crossroad.

Paston letters by John Warrington( Book )

30 editions published between 1900 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 268 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

Utopia by Thomas More( Book )

8 editions published between 1974 and 1976 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1516, Saint Thomas More's Utopia is one of the most important works of European humanism. Through the voice of the mysterious traveler Raphael Hythloday, More describes a pagan, communist city-state governed by reason. Addressing such issues as religious pluralism, women's rights, state-sponsored education, colonialism, and justified warfare, Utopia seems remarkably contemporary nearly five centuries after it was written, and it remains a foundational text in philosophy and political theory. Preeminent More scholar Clarence H. Miller does justice to the full range of More's rhetoric in this new translation. Professor Miller includes a helpful introduction that outlines some of the important problems and issues that Utopia raises, and also provides informative commentary to assist the reader throughout this challenging and rewarding exploration of the meaning of political community. In this new translation, preeminent More scholar Clarence M. Miller does justice to the full range of More's rhetoric. Miller includes a helpful introduction that outlines some of the important problems & issues that Utopia raises, & also provides important commentary to assist the reader throughout this challenging & rewarding exploration of the meaning of political community

7 editions published between 1953 and 1965 in English and held by 85 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
