Nicomachean ethics by Aristotle( Book )

66 editions published between 1831 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A vigorous polemicist as well as a rational philosopher, Aristotle (384 - 322 BCE) has the task in his ethics of demonstrating how men become good and why happiness can, and should, be our goal. The success of Aristotle's endeavour may be measured by the enormous impact of his ethics on Western moral philosophy through the centuries. Composed as mere lecture notes, it possesses a startling boldness and represents an exacting, exciting challenge to the reader. By converting ethics from a theoretical to a practical science, and by introducing psychology into his study of behaviour, Aristotle both widens the field of moral philosophy and simultaneously makes it more accessible to anyone who seeks an understanding of human
The library of Greek mythology by Apollodorus( Book )

27 editions published between 1854 and 1991 in 5 languages and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Apollodorus' Library has been an invaluable source book for early Greek myths from the time of its compilation in the first/second century BC to the present, influencing writers from the scholars of Byzantium to Robert Graves. It provides a complete history of Greek myth, telling the story of each of the families of heroic mythology and the various adventures associated with the main heroes and heroines, from Jason and Perseus to Heracles and Helen of Troy. As a primary source for Greek myth, as a reference work, and as an indication of how the Greeks themselves viewed their mythical traditions, the Library is indispensable to anyone who has an interest in classical mythology. Robin Hard's accessible and fluent translation is supplemented by comprehensive notes, a map, and full genealogical tables. The Introduction gives a detailed account of the Library's sources and discusses the developing traditions of Greek mythical narrative

Decline and fall of Byzantium to the Ottoman Turks by Doukas( Book )

39 editions published between 1834 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author of this history was a member of the Byzantine Doukas family, a grandson of Michael Doukas, who had come to prominence in the civil wars of the fourteenth century, and possibly a remote descendant of the eleventh-century emperor Michael VII. His own first name and dates of birth and death are not known, but he seemed to have worked for a Genoese family or business, and after the fall of Constantinople took refuge on the island of Lesbos, then controlled by the Genoese Gattilusi dynasty. His history of the period 1341-1462, including the Ottoman conquest, survived in one manuscript: this 1834 edition by Immanuel Bekker provides, as well as a Latin translation of the original Greek text, a near-contemporary Italian version of unknown authorship discovered in a Venetian library by the historian Leopold Ranke, who supplied it to Bekker

Laonici Chalcocondylae Atheniensis Historiarum libri decem by Laonikos Chalkokondylēs( Book )

25 editions published between 1843 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Byzantine writer Laonicus Chalcocondyles (c.1430-90) has been described as 'the last Athenian historian'. From a noble Athenian family, he moved to the court of Mistra in the Peloponnese, then ruled by Constantine XI Palaiologos (later the last emperor of Byzantium), and may have been a pupil of Gemistos Plethon. Laonicus' most important work was this 'Apodeixis' or 'setting forth' of the history of the period from 1298 to 1463, during which the Byzantine Empire came under increasing pressure from, and eventually succumbed to, the Ottoman Turks. Laonicus uses the Ancient Greek historians, especially Herodotus, as his models, comparing the fall of Constantinople in 1453 to the fall of Troy. The surviving Greek manuscripts of his work were not well preserved, and for this edition of 1843, the German philologist Immanuel Bekker (1785-1871) collated the various versions and supplied a Latin translation, rendering the work accessible to historians
