The conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar( Book )

51 editions published between 1951 and 2012 in English and Arabic and held by 1,203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Roman leader's memoirs recount his campaigns against the Gallic tribes conducted between 58 and 50 B.C
The Jugurthine War ; The conspiracy of Catiline by Sallust( Book )

21 editions published between 1963 and 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 958 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author, who had various public offices in Rome and later a governorship in Africa, supported the political group known as the "populares". He was a friend of Caesar and an opponent of Cicero. His history of the war against Jugurtha, King of Numidia, and his account of Catiline's conspirace in 63 B.C. are his only complete works to survive; they were written in the years after Caesar's assassination. This translation fully preserves the dramatic and vivid qualities of the original Latin. [Back cover]
The fables of Aesop by Aesop( Book )

33 editions published between 1954 and 1988 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sardonic, wry and wise, "Aesop's Fables" are some of the most enduring and well-loved literary creations in history. In a series of pithy, amusing vignettes, Aesop created a vivid cast of characters to demonstrate different aspects of human nature. Here we see a wily fox outwitted by a quick-thinking cicada, a tortoise triumphing over a self-confident hare and a fable-teller named Aesop silencing those who mock him. Each jewel-like fable provides a warning about the consequences of wrong-doing, as well as offering a glimpse into the everyday lives of Ancient Greeks
Aesop's fables by Aesop( Book )

34 editions published between 1954 and 2015 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collection of the classic fables includes Sour Grapes, Slow but Sure, Town Mouse and Country Mouse, and more than two hundred others. Many of these tales are so well known they have given us phrases we use every day, like dog in the manger or sour grapes, but even the rarer ones seem familiar, because their simple morals are based on universal truths. From the tortoise and the hare or the boy who cried wolf to the treacherous partridge or big and little fish, Aesop's wise and foolish creatures are a lasting delight
The Agricola ; and, the Germania by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

15 editions published between 1970 and 2003 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tacitus' Agricola is a description of the career of his father-in-law, one of the most famous of the governors of Roman Britain. The Germania is a study of the character, customs, & geography of the German tribes
Langenscheidt's pocket Latin dictionary : Latin-English, English-Latin by S. A Handford( Book )

16 editions published between 1955 and 2005 in English and Latin and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Human capital-based theories of cities suggest that large, economically diverse urban agglomerations increase worker productivity by increasing the rate at which individuals acquire skills. One largely unexplored implication of this theory is that workers in big cities should see faster growth in their earnings over time than comparable workers in smaller markets. This paper examines this implication using data on a sample of young male workers drawn from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979 Cohort. The results suggest that earnings growth does tend to be faster in large, economically diverse local labor markets--defined as counties and metropolitan areas--than in smaller, more specialized markets. Yet, when examined in greater detail, I also find that this association tends to be the product of faster wage growth due to job changes rather than faster wage growth experienced while on a particular job. This result is consistent with the idea that cities enhance worker productivity through a job search and matching process and, thus, that an important aspect of 'learning' in cities may involve individuals learning about what they do well"--Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis web site
