Most widely held works by Otto Jahn
Life of Mozart by Otto Jahn( Book )

W.A. Mozart by Hermann Abert( Book )

60 editions published between 1856 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hermann Abert's biography, first published in German more than eighty years ago and itself based on the definitive mid-nineteenth century study by Otto Jahn, remains the most informed and substantial biography of Mozart in any language. The book is both the fullest account of the composer's life and a deeply skilled analysis of his music." "Proceeding chronologically from 1756 to 1791, the book interrogates every aspect of Mozart's life, influences, and experience; his personality; his religious and secular dimensions; and the social context of the time. In "a book within a book," Abert also provides close scrutiny of the music, including the operas, orchestral work, symphonies and piano concertos, church music and cantatas, and compositions for solo instruments." "While the tone of Abert's great work is expertly rendered by Stewart Spencer, developments in Mozart scholarship since the last German edition are signaled by the Mozart scholar, Cliff Eisen, in careful annotations on every page. Supported by a host of leading Mozart scholars, this immense undertaking at last permits English-language readers access to the most important single source on the life of this great composer."--Jacket

Sophoclis Electra by Sophocles( Book )

52 editions published between 1861 and 1882 in 6 languages and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Revised by Adolf Michaelis, the third edition of German philologist Otto Jahn's Greek text of Sophocles' Electra was published in 1882. Sophocles (c.496-406 BCE) wrote his great tragedy towards the end of his career; it is one of only seven of his estimated 123 works to survive. Taking place in Argos, the play portrays the revenge taken by Electra and Orestes, following the murder of their father Agamemnon, on their mother Clytemnestra and stepfather Aegisthus. Jahn (1813-69), who also produced a renowned scholarly biography of Mozart, was Professor of archaeology at Leipzig - until his removal for involvement in the 1848 uprisings - then Director of the Academic Art Museum at Bonn, and Professor of Archaeology at Berlin. This highly regarded edition, with extensive critical apparatus and commentary throughout, remains an authoritative resource for readers interested in the history of philology, textual criticism, and Classical Greek literature

Dionysii vel Longini De sublimitate libellus by Longinus( Book )

Satires by Persius( Book )

21 editions published between 1843 and 1967 in 4 languages and held by 107 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
Beschreibung der vasensammlung königs Ludwigs in der Pinakothek zu München by Otto Jahn( Book )

19 editions published in 1854 in German and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plato's Symposium by Plato( Book )

24 editions published between 1864 and 1875 in 4 languages and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Counter Plato, Allan Bloom wrote, is "the most erotic of philosophers," and his Symposium is one of the greatest works on the nature of love ever written. This new edition brings together the English translation of the renowned Plato scholar and translator, Seth Benardete, with two illuminating commentaries on it: Benardete's "On Plato's Symposium" and Allan Bloom's provocative essay, "The Ladder of Love." In the Symposium, Plato recounts a drinking party following an evening meal, where the guests include the poet Aristophanes, the drunken Alcibiades, and, of course, the wise Socrates. The revelers give their views on the timeless topics of love and desire, all the while addressing many of the major themes of Platonic philosophy: the relationship of philosophy and poetry, the good, and the beautiful."
