Most widely held works by E. O Lorimer
Daily life in ancient Rome : the people and the city at the height of the empire by Jérôme Carcopino( Book )

53 editions published between 1940 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This classic book brings to life imperial Rome as it was during the second century A.D., the time of Trajan and Hadrian, Marcus Aurelius and Commodus. It was a period marked by lavish displays of wealth, a dazzling cultural mix, and the advent of Christianity. The splendor and squalor of the city, the spectacles and the day's routines are reconstructed from an immense fund of archaeological evidence and from vivid descriptions by ancient poets, satirists, letter-writers, and novelists - from Petronius to Pliny the Younger. In a new Introduction, the classicist Mary Beard appraises the book's enduring - and sometimes surprising - influence and its value for general readers and students. She also provides an up-to-date Bibliographic Essay."--Jacket

Burusho AV07( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection consists of 9 documents about the Burusho, a mountain people living primarily in the Hunza valley, but also in the Nagar and Yasin areas, and in the Gilgit district of the northern areas of Pakistan. All are in English except Lorimer, which provides both the original text in Burushaski and its translation into English. Four documents by David L. Lorimer, a British political agent who lived in Hunza from 1920 to 1924, and his wife, Emily O. Lorimer, focus on folklore, local traditions and linguistic issues. John Tobe's work tries to correct popular western views which wrongly regarded Hunza as a paradise where people live extraordinarily long healthy lifes. John Clark compliments Tobe's work by listing the many cases of disease which he encountered while maintaining a general dispensary in the area in 1948-1951. The remaining two documents discuss economy, ecology and social organization
