The Institutio oratoria of Quintilian by Quintilian( Book )

71 editions published between 1920 and 1995 in 5 languages and held by 1,657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

QUINTILIANUS, Marcus Fabius (c.35-c.95 A.D.) of Calagurris in Spain was brought up at Rome, but was in Spain 61-68 until with the new-made emperor Galba he returned to Rome where he became head of the most important school of Oratory, and sometimes pleaded in the law-courts. The emperor Vespasian (69-79) made him a 'Professor of Latin Rhetoric' until he retired to compose a lost work on why eloquence had declined, and the extant Institutio Oratoria 'Training of an Orator' (twelve books), and also became a teacher to the emperor Domitian's two grand-nephews. He died before A.D. 96. He had been taught by the famous Seneca and Domitius of Nimes, but so admired the long dead orator Cicero that he wished to bring the orators of his own age back to Cicero'. His Institutio propounds for an orator a training in character and oratory from birth. He presents us with interesting and important views on general education, deals in detail with all oratorical composition and the devices of rhetoric, and outlines the ideal orator. His review of the past literature of Greece and Rome is famous and makes him a good literary critic. The whole work is composed in a dignified yet pleasant style, and his judgements are fair and gentle

Elegies / Propertius ; edited and translated by G.P. Goold by Sextus Propertius( Book )

72 editions published between 1905 and 1996 in 4 languages and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The passionate and dramatic elegies of Propertius gained him a reputation as one of Rome's finest love poets. Here he portrays the exciting, uneven course of his love affair with Cynthia and tells us much about his contemporaries and the society in which he lives, while in later poems he turns to mythological themes and the legends of early Rome. In this new edition of Propertius, G.P. Goold solves some long-standing questions of interpretation and gives us a faithful and stylish prose translation. His explanatory notes and glossary-index offer steady guidance and a wealth of information. Born in Assisi about 50 B.C., Sextus Propertius moved as a young man to Rome, where he came into contact with a coterie of poets, including Virgil, Tibullus, Horace, and Ovid. Publication of his first book brought immediate recognition and the unwavering support of Maecenas, the influential patron of the Augustan poets. He died perhaps in his mid-thirties, leaving us four books of elegies that have attracted admirers throughout the ages

Ultraviolet stellar spectra and related ground-based observations by L Houziaux( Book )

3 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two years ago, just before the Prague meeting of the International Astronomical Union, Armin Deutsch made the bold suggestion that the space spectroscopists hold a joint symposium with the ground-based observers. At that time the rocket observa tions of stellar spectra seemed too meagre to make such a meeting worthwhile, but we proceeded in the hope that there would be significant new results available by 1969. IAU Commissions 29 and 44, on Stellar Spectra and Observations from Outside the Terrestrial Atmosphere respectively, agreed to sponsor the symposium so that the organization was given to the Joint Working Group of these commissions. Conse quently, the Organizing Committee, which met first in Prague, consisted of A. Deutsch, M.W. Feast, L. Houziaux, V.G. Kurt, N.G. Roman, J. Sahade, A.B. Underhill, and R. Wilson, with myself as Chairman. Later COSP AR was invited to join in spon soring the symposium and T. Chubb was added as their representative. We were specially pleased when C. de Jager invited us to the Netherlands and offered the services of the Utrecht Observatory for the local organization. He suggested we hold the meeting at the new Lunteren Conference Centre located in a wooded area some 35 km east of Utrecht. The modern facilities of the Centre and the hospi tality of its staff contributed much to the enjoyment of our four days there
