"Liberty Fund presents the first modern edition of The Principles of Natural and Politic Law, based on the posthumous unified edition of 1763. The unidentified quotes and recurrent borrowings that abound in the second volume have for the first time been identified. The editor, Petter Korkman, writes that it is not an overstatement "to declare that a solid acquaintance with the Principle will provide the reader with essential ... background for understanding the moral and political thought of the mature Enlightenment, whether in its European settings or in the newly formed United States.""--Jacket

Letters from a Stoic : Epistulae morales ad Lucilium by Lucius Annaeus Seneca( )

4 editions published in 1800 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The power and wealth which Seneca the Younger (C.4 B.C.- A.D. 65) acquired as Nero's minister were in conflict with his Stoic beliefs. Nevertheless he was the outstanding figure of his age. The Stoic philosophy which Seneca professed in his writings, later supported by Marcus Aurelius, provided Rome with a passable bridge to Christianity. Seneca's major contribution to Stoicism was to spiritualize and humanize a system which could appear cold and unrealistic

Cecilia, or, Memoirs of an heiress by Fanny Burney( Book )

2 editions published in 1803 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cecilia is an heiress, but will inherit her estate only if her husband consents to take her surname." "Cecilia, or Memoirs of an Heiress (1782) is an unusual and disturbing love-story. In playing on the issue of the heroine's name, the novel illustrates the high cost of a patriarchal system. Burney exhibits her comic and satiric powers in depicting Cecilia's dismaying entry into the gilded fashionable world. Cecilia's experiences also bring her into contact with the poor and the low; running through the social analysis is an almost Dickensian forceful sympathy for those whose place in the structure of things is taken for granted. Controversial in its time, and much admired by writers as diverse as Edmund Burke, Mary Wollstonecraft, and Choderlos de Laclos, Cecilia still retains its freshness." "This edition presents Cecilia as it first appeared in 1782, indicating changes Burney made to later editions. It includes Burney's cancelled 'Introduction', printed (and annotated) here for the first time, as transcribed from the manuscript."--Jacket
