On sophistical refutations by Aristotle( Book )
88 editions published between 1955 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,359 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

Isaeus by Isaeus( Book )
69 editions published between 1927 and 2006 in 6 languages and held by 1,236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Isaeus (c. 420-350 BCE) composed speeches for others. He shares with Lysias pure Attic and lucidity of style, but his more aggressive and flexible presentation undoubtedly influenced Demosthenes. Of at least fifty attributed orations, there survive eleven on legacy cases and a large fragment dealing with a claim of citizenship

Epitome of Roman history by Lucius Annaeus Florus( Book )
54 editions published between 1929 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 931 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Florius, born apparently in Africa, lived in Spain and in Rome in Hadrian's time. He wrote, in brief pointed rhetorical style, a summary of Roman history (especially wars) in two books in order to show the greatness and decline of Roman morals. It was perhaps planned to reach his own times, but the extant work ends with Augustus' reign (30 BC-AD 14). This Epitome is a useful rapid sketch of Roman military history. -- jacket
On agriculture by Lucius Junius Moderatus Columella( Book )
42 editions published between 1941 and 1993 in 4 languages and held by 909 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Columella (Lucius Iunius Moderatus) of Gades (Cadiz) lived in the reigns of the first emperors to about A.D. 70, coming early in life to Italy where he owned farms and lived near Rome. It is probable that he did military service in Syria and Cilicia and that he died at Tarentum. To one Publius Silvinus he addressed his Res Rustica the most comprehensive, systematic and detailed of Roman agricultural works: Book I Choice of farming-site; water-supply; buildings; staff. II Ploughing; fertilizing; care of crops. III, IV, V Cultivation, grafting and pruning of fruit trees ets., vines, olives. VI Acquisition, breeding, and rearing of oxen, horses, and mules; veterinary medicine. VII Sheep, goats, pigs, and dogs. VIII Poultry, fish-ponds. IX Bee-keeping. X (in hexameter poetry) Gardening, as an addition to the Georgics of Virgil who did not include it. At Silvinus' request Columella added XI Duties of the overseer of a farm; calendar for farm-work; more on gardening; and XII Duties of the overseer's wife; manufacture of wines; pickling; preserving. A XIIIth book is formed as a separate work by De Arboribus 'On Trees' (cp. Books III, IV, V) - on vines and olives and various trees, addressed it seems to Eprius Marcellus and forming perhaps part of an otherwise lost work written before the Res Rustica
