The Georgics by Virgil ( Book )
20 editions published between 1986 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Virgil's Georgics, considered to be one of the great poems of Western literature, is ostensibly a didactic poem on agriculture. Challenging this idea, the late Sir Roger Mynors argues that the poem's true subject is humanity and its place in nature and society. The poem is also a landmark in the use of the natural world as material for literature and of special interest because the poet draws not only on his own experience but also on his wide reading of Greek poetry. This commentary examines Virgil's meaning and choice of expression to provide a fuller understanding of the poetry

William of Malmesbury's Gesta Regum Anglorum (The Deeds of the English Kings) is one of the great histories of England.

Catalogue of the manuscripts of Hereford Cathedral Library by Hereford Cathedral ( Book )
5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The library at Hereford Cathedral is famous as one of the few surviving 'chained libraries'; but the contents of the books secured to the seventeenth-century presses are less well known. There are 227 Western manuscripts, a very substantial holding, of which about half have been at the cathedral since before the Reformation. Many of the others came from local religious houses in the course of the sixteenth century. They range in date from the eighth to the fifteenth century, and include finely-illustrated patristic books of the twelfth century, a large collection of Oxford University legal textbooks, and books of civil and canon law from the end of the thirteenth century. Over half the volumes survive in largely intact medieval bindings. The catalogue, begun by the late Sir Roger Mynors and completed by Professor Thomson, reflects the particular strengths of the collection. The many glossed books are described using a particularly effective system devised by Sir Roger Mynors, and the medieval bindings are the subject of an introductory essay by Michael Gullick, as well as being described individually. The history of the library is set out, and the library apparatus is illustrated. The plates cover not only illumination and bindings, but medieval pressmarks and ownership inscriptions, as well as examples of scripts
