The Attic nights of Aulus Gellius by Aulus Gellius( Book )

23 editions published between 1968 and 1990 in Latin and Undetermined and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aulus Gellius (c. 123-170 CE) offers in Attic Nights (Gellius began to write these pieces during stays in Athens) a collection of short chapters about notable events, words and questions of literary style, lives of historical figures, legal points, and philosophical issues that served as instructive light reading for cultivated Romans. Aulus Gellius (ca. 123-170 CE) is known almost wholly from his Noctes Atticae, Attic Nights, so called because it was begun during the nights of an Attic winter. The work collects in twenty books (of Book VIII only the index is extant) interesting notes covering philosophy, history, biography, all sorts of antiquities, points of law, literary criticism, and lexicographic matters, explanations of old words and questions of grammar. The work is valuable because of its many excerpts from other authors whose works are lost; and because of its evidence for people's manners and occupations. Some at least of the dramatic settings may be genuine occasions. The Loeb Classical Library edition of Attic Nights is in three volumes
Utopia by Thomas More( Book )

10 editions published between 1965 and 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Book I More talks of the evils of the world and asserts the need for an ideal commonwealth, which Book II describes. Utopia has the advantages of a nation, being a self-contained island almost immune to external forces. As the author regards property as the root of all evil, he banishes private property and all luxuries in his ideal state

The etymologies of Isidore of Seville by Isidore( Book )

22 editions published in 1983 in 3 languages and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work is the first complete English translation of the Latin Etymologies of Isidore, bishop of Seville (c. 560-636). Isidore compiled the work between c. 615 and the early 630s and it takes the form of an encyclopedia, arranged by subject matter. It contains much lore of the late classical world beginning with the Seven Liberal Arts, including Rhetoric, and touches on hundreds of topics ranging from the names of God, the terminology of the law, the technologies of fabrics, ships, and agriculture, to the names of cities and rivers, the theatrical arts, and cooking utensils. Isidore provides etymologies for most of the terms he explains, finding in the causes of words the underlying key to their meaning. This book offers a highly readable translation of the twenty books of the Etymologies, one of the most widely known texts for a thousand years from Isidore's time."--Jacket
