The legal code of Ælfred the Great by Great Britain( Book )

17 editions published between 1890 and 2017 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The preparation of a separate edition of Ælfred's Legal Code is due to the conviction that the nature of this work rendered desirable its consideration from a literary point of view. Philologically also its existence in one very old manuscript gives it among Anglo-Saxon Law-Books a peculiar value. But its chief claim to special consideration rest's upon its author's great significance in Anglo-Saxon Literature. King Alfred's literary tastes and occupations strongly colour this work; indeed in the Introduction the lawgiver is plainly supplanted by the man of letters, who, even in the actual laws, often presses close to the view"--Preface, page [v]. A comparison of manuscripts

15 editions published between 1698 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written while Boethius was in prison, in the period leading up to his brutal execution, this is a dialogue of alternating prose and verse between the ailing prisoner and his 'nurse' Philosophy, whose instruction on the nature of fortune and happiness, good and evil, fate and free will, restore his health and bring him to enlightenment. The clarity of the author's thought and his breadth of vision made this book hugely popular throughout medieval Europe and his ideas suffused the thought of Chaucer and Dante

"Asser's Life of King Alfred, written in 893, is a revealing account of one of the greatest medieval kings. Composed by a monk of St David's in Wales ... this life is among the earliest surviving royal biographies ... chronicling his battles against Viking invaders and his struggle to increase the strength and knowledge of this people, and to unite them at a time of conflict, uncertainty and war. This edition also includes other contemporary sources, including annals from the The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, King Alfred's laws, his will and extracts from his own writings"--Page 4 of cover
