English translation of the 1688 edition of De Jure Naturae Et Gentium Libri Octo. Pufendorf's Law of Nature and Nations presents in eight books (in one volume) an entire system of jurisprudence, private, public, and international, based on the conception of natural law. Beginning with a consideration of the fundamental principles of law and its various divisions, Pufendorf proceeds to a discussion of the validity of customs, the doctrines of necessity and innate human reason. The remainder of this work applies the principles of Books I & II to various matters of private law. --

The library of History by Diodorus( Book )

7 editions published between 1933 and 2015 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diodorus' Library of History, written in the first century BCE, is the most extensively preserved history by an ancient Greek author. The work is in three parts: mythical history to the Trojan War; history to Alexander's death (323 BCE); history to 54 BCE. Books 1-5 and 11-20 survive complete, the rest in fragments. Diodorus Siculus, Greek historian of Agyrium in Sicily, ca. 80-20 BCE, wrote forty books of world history, called Library of History, in three parts: mythical history of peoples, non-Greek and Greek, to the Trojan War; history to Alexander's death (323 BCE); history to 54 BCE. Of this we have complete Books I-V (Egyptians, Assyrians, Ethiopians, Greeks) and Books XI-XX (Greek history 480-302 BCE); and fragments of the rest. He was an uncritical compiler, but used good sources and reproduced them faithfully. He is valuable for details unrecorded elsewhere, and as evidence for works now lost, especially writings of Ephorus, Apollodorus, Agatharchides, Philistus, and Timaeus. The Loeb Classical Library edition of Diodorus Siculus is in twelve volumes
