The history of the rise, progress, and establishment, of the independence of the United States of America : including an account of the late war : and of the thirteen colonies, from their origin to that period by William Gordon( Book )

2 editions published in 1788 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The following work is not confined to the contest between Great Britain and the United States of America, but includes all the other parts of the war which originated from that contest. ... The form of letters, instead of chapters, is not altogether imaginary, as the author, from his arrival in America in 1770, maintained a correspondence with gentlemen in London, Rotterdam and Paris, answering in general to the prefixed dates."--Preface

On old age : and On friendship by Marcus Tullius Cicero( )

3 editions published between 1524 and 1778 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a complete critical edition of Cicero's Cato Maior de Senectute (On Old Age) with an introduction and commentary. The text is based on a fresh examination of the manuscript tradition while the introduction aims to place the work in the context of Cicero's writings on old age in the ancient world. The Roman and Ciceronian qualities of the work are emphasized, rather than the search for lost sources that occupied scholars in the past. Matters of text, language, and content are all considered equally in the commentary

2 editions published in 1728 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Chronology of Ancient Kingdoms Amended is a popular religious work written by Sir Isaac Newton, who was an English physicist, mathematician, astronomer and philosopher.

The Chronology of Ancient Kingdoms Amended is highly recommended for those who enjoy the writings of Sir Isaac Newton and also for those who are discovering his works for the first time
History of the rise, progress, and termination of the American Revolution : interspersed with biographical, political, and moral observations by Mercy Otis Warren( Book )

1 edition published in 1805 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mercy Otis Warren has been described as perhaps the most formidable female intellectual in eighteenth-century America. This work (in the first new edition since 1805) is an exciting and comprehensive study of the events of the American Revolution, from the Stamp Act Crisis of 1765 through the ratification of the Constitution in 1788-1789. Steeped in the classical, republican tradition, Warren was a strong proponent of the American Revolution. She was also suspicious of the newly emerging commercial republic of the 1780s and hostile to the Constitution from an Anti-Federalist perspective, a position that gave her history some notoriety
Le droit de la guerre et de la paix by Hugo Grotius( Book )

4 editions published in 1724 in French and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hugo de Groot ou Grotius (1583-1645) fut "homme de loi, homme de foi, homme de lettres." Dans son oeuvre prodigieuse, les De jure belli ac pacis libri tres occupent une place centrale. Malgre le titre - emprunte au Pro Balbo de ciceron - qu'il a donne a son traite du Droit de la guerre et de la paix, Grotius semble moins soucieux d'ouvrir la voie, comme on l'a souvent repete, au droit international moderne que d'inaugurer, par une revolution epistemologique, une science du droit systematique et reationnelle. A partir de l'exemple topique de la guerre, il en adosse l'edifice a une somptueuse axiomatique du "droit naturel," qu'il distingue du "droit volontaire" et concoit comme le dictamen rationis que commande le principe de sociabilite. Sur cette base, le droit de la guerre peut - et doit - s'accomplir en droit de la paix
