Lives of eminent philosophers by Diogenes Laertius( Book )

206 editions published between 1925 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 2,474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This rich compendium on the lives and doctrines of philosophers ranges over three centuries, from Thales to Epicurus (to whom the whole tenth book is devoted); 45 important figures are portrayed. Diogenes Laertius carefully compiled his information from hundreds of sources and enriches his accounts with numerous quotations. Diogenes Laertius lived probably in the earlier half of the 3rd century CE, his ancestry and birthplace being unknown. His history, in ten books, is divided unscientifically into two 'Successions' or sections: 'Ionian' from Anaximander to Theophrastus and Chrysippus, including the Socratic schools; 'Italian' from Pythagoras to Epicurus, including the Eleatics and sceptics. It is a very valuable collection of quotations and facts."--Publisher description

Cambridge compositions : Greek and Latin by R. D Archer-Hind( Book )

13 editions published between 1899 and 2009 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Original composition in classical languages was an important and much admired skill in the Victorian education system. In public schools and university Classics courses it was a key part of the curriculum, not only teaching the structure of the ancient languages themselves but also honing rhetorical skills. This 1899 anthology of selections from English literature translated into Greek and Latin prose and verse, includes contributions from a whole generation of late Victorian classical scholars at Cambridge: Sir Richard Claverhouse Jebb and his successor as Regius Professor of Greek, Henry Jackson, James Adam, editor of Plato, Samuel Butcher, founder of the English Classical Association and President of the British Academy in 1909-10, a number of younger scholars and even one female lecturer. This would have been a model volume for Victorian students and remains useful today for those wanting to improve both comprehension and composition in the classical languages
