The art of rhetoric by Aristotle( Book )

144 editions published between 1909 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aristotle, great Greek philosopher, researcher, reasoner, and writer, born at Stagirus in 384 BCE, was the son of Nicomachus, a physician, and Phaestis. He studied under Plato at Athens and taught there (367-347); subsequently he spent three years at the court of a former pupil, Hermeias, in Asia Minor and at this time married Pythias, one of Hermeias's relations. After some time at Mitylene, in 343-2 he was appointed by King Philip of Macedon to be tutor of his teen-aged son Alexander. After Philip's death in 336, Aristotle became head of his own school (of Peripatetics), the Lyceum at Athens. Because of anti-Macedonian feeling there after Alexander's death in 323, he withdrew to Chalcis in Euboea, where he died in 322. Nearly all the works Aristotle prepared for publication are lost; the priceless ones extant are lecture-materials, notes, and memoranda (some are spurious). They can be categorized as follows: I Practical: Nicomachean Ethics; Great Ethics (Magna Moralia); Eudemian Ethics; Politics; Economics (on the good of the family); On Virtues and Vices. II Logical: Categories; Analytics (Prior and Posterior); Interpretation; Refutations used by Sophists; Topica. III Physical: Twenty-six works (some suspect) including astronomy, generation and destruction, the senses, memory, sleep, dreams, life, facts about animals, etc. IV Metaphysics: on being as being. V Art: Rhetoric and Poetics. VI Other works including the Constitution of Athens; more works also of doubtful authorship. VII Fragments of various works such as dialogues on philosophy and literature; and of treatises on rhetoric, politics and metaphysics."--Jacket
The speeches, with an English translation: Pro Publio Quinctio--Pro Sexto Rosico Amerino--Pro Quinto Roscio Comoedo--De lege agraria I., II., III by Marcus Tullius Cicero( Book )

65 editions published between 1930 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

CICEREO (Marcus Tullius, 3rd Jan. 106-7th Dec. 43 B.C.), Roman lawyer, orator and politician (and even philosopher), of whom we know more than of any other Roman, lived through the stirring era which saw the rise, dictatorship, and death of Julius Caesar in a tottering republic. In his political speeches especially and in his correspondence we see the excitement, tension and intrigue of politics and the part he played in the turmoil of the time. Of about 106 Speeches, delivered before the Roman people or the Senate if they were political, before jurors if judicial, 58 survive (a few of them incompletely). In A.D. 1345 Petrarch discovered copies of a collection of more than 900 Letters of which more than 800 were written by Cicero and nearly 100 by others to him. These afford a revelation of the man and all the more striking because they were not written for publication. Six Rhetorical works survive and another in fragments. Philosophical works include seven extant major compositions and a number of others; and some lost. There is also poetry, some original, some as translations from the Greek

Pope Joan by Emmanouēl D Rhoidēs( Book )

4 editions published between 1900 and 1983 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pope Joan is Lawrence Durrell's adaptation of the notorious Greek classic Papissa Joanna, the story of the only female pope. The story's source is the old belief that in the ninth century a girl disguised as a monk made her way from Greece to Rome, was elevated to the throne of St. Peter, and ruled over Christendom for a time as Pope John VIII. Interest in this legend (if it is a legend) was revived when Emmanuel Royidis published his sparkling and irreverent book in Greece in 1886. In the present version of Royidis's work, Lawrence Durrell has given us much more than a mere translation. This Pope Joan is a masterpiece in its own right--a dazzling blend of fantasy and scholarship, witty, ironic, and full of prophetic vision about women. --P. [4] of cover
