Epitome of Roman history by Lucius Annaeus Florus( Book )

110 editions published between 1929 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Florius, born apparently in Africa, lived in Spain and in Rome in Hadrian's time. He wrote, in brief pointed rhetorical style, a summary of Roman history (especially wars) in two books in order to show the greatness and decline of Roman morals. It was perhaps planned to reach his own times, but the extant work ends with Augustus' reign (30 BC-AD 14). This Epitome is a useful rapid sketch of Roman military history. -- jacket

Isaeus by Isaeus( Book )

85 editions published between 1927 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Isaeus (c. 420-350 BCE) composed speeches for others. He shares with Lysias pure Attic and lucidity of style, but his more aggressive and flexible presentation undoubtedly influenced Demosthenes. Of at least fifty attributed orations, there survive eleven on legacy cases and a large fragment dealing with a claim of citizenship

"ARISTOTLE, great Greek Philosopher, researcher, reasoner, and writer, born at Stagirus in 384 B.C., was the son of a medical doctor Nicomachus and Phaestis. He studied uner Plato at Athens and taught there 367-347; spent three years at the court of a former pupil Hermeias in Asia Minor and married Pythias a relation of his; after some time at Mitylene, in 343-2 he was appointed by King Philip of Macedon to be a tutor of his teen-aged son Alexander, and had other pupils. After Philip's death in 336, Aristotle became head of his own school (of 'Peripatetics'), the Lyceum at Athens. Because of anti-Macedonian feeling there after Alexander's death in 323, he withdrew to Chalcis in Euboea and died there in 322. Nearly all the works he prepared for publication are lost, the priceless ones extant being lecture-materials, notes, and memoranda (some are spurious). I Practical. Nicomachean Ethics; Great Ethics (Magna Moralia); Eudemian Ethics; Politics; Economics (on the good of the family); On virtues and Vices; II Logical.

On agriculture by Lucius Junius Moderatus Columella( Book )

28 editions published between 1941 and 1993 in English and Latin and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Columella (Lucius Iunius Moderatus) of Gades (Cadiz) lived in the reigns of the first emperors to about A.D. 70, coming early in life to Italy where he owned farms and lived near Rome. It is probable that he did military service in Syria and Cilicia and that he died at Tarentum. To one Publius Silvinus he addressed his Res Rustica the most comprehensive, systematic and detailed of Roman agricultural works: Book I Choice of farming-site; water-supply; buildings; staff. II Ploughing; fertilizing; care of crops. III, IV, V Cultivation, grafting and pruning of fruit trees ets., vines, olives. VI Acquisition, breeding, and rearing of oxen, horses, and mules; veterinary medicine. VII Sheep, goats, pigs, and dogs. VIII Poultry, fish-ponds. IX Bee-keeping. X (in hexameter poetry) Gardening, as an addition to the Georgics of Virgil who did not include it. At Silvinus' request Columella added XI Duties of the overseer of a farm; calendar for farm-work; more on gardening; and XII Duties of the overseer's wife; manufacture of wines; pickling; preserving. A XIIIth book is formed as a separate work by De Arboribus 'On Trees' (cp. Books III, IV, V) - on vines and olives and various trees, addressed it seems to Eprius Marcellus and forming perhaps part of an otherwise lost work written before the Res Rustica
