Lucan by Lucan( Book )

1 edition published in 1658 in French and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lucan lived from 39-65 AD at a time of great turbulence in Rome. His Civil War portrays two of the most colourful and powerful figures of the age-Julius Caesar and Pompey the Great, enemies in a vicious struggle for power that severed bloodlines and began the transformation of Roman civilization. With Right locked in combat with Might, law and order broke down and the anarchic violence that resulted left its mark on the Roman people forever, paving the way for the imperial monarchy. Accessible and modern yet loyal to the rhetorical brilliance of the original, this will be the definitive Civil War of our times."--Publisher's website

The Attic nights of Aulus Gellius by Aulus Gellius( Book )

1 edition published in 1665 in Latin and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aulus Gellius (c. 123-170 CE) offers in Attic Nights (Gellius began to write these pieces during stays in Athens) a collection of short chapters about notable events, words and questions of literary style, lives of historical figures, legal points, and philosophical issues that served as instructive light reading for cultivated Romans. Aulus Gellius (ca. 123-170 CE) is known almost wholly from his Noctes Atticae, Attic Nights, so called because it was begun during the nights of an Attic winter. The work collects in twenty books (of Book VIII only the index is extant) interesting notes covering philosophy, history, biography, all sorts of antiquities, points of law, literary criticism, and lexicographic matters, explanations of old words and questions of grammar. The work is valuable because of its many excerpts from other authors whose works are lost; and because of its evidence for people's manners and occupations. Some at least of the dramatic settings may be genuine occasions. The Loeb Classical Library edition of Attic Nights is in three volumes

Museum Wormianum : seu historia rerum rariorum, tam naturalium, quam artificialium, tam domesticarum, quam exoticarum, quæ Hafniæ Danorum in œdibus authoris fervantur by Ole Worm( Book )

1 edition published in 1655 in Latin and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Detailed description of the natural history cabinet created by the Danish scientist Ole Worm. The text is divided into four books, the first three dealing with minerals, the plant and animal kingdoms. The fourth takes in manufactured objects, for example archaeological and ethnographical items, coins and some original works of art. The work is not merely a catalogue, but a scholarly work with references to, and quotations from, other writers. Cf. Website of The King's Kunstkammer at The National Museum of Denmark
