History of Rome by Livy( Book )

12 editions published between 1665 and 1679 in Latin and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Livy (Titus Livius), the great Roman historian, was born at Patavium (Padua) in 64 or 59 BC, where after years in Rome he died in AD 12 or 17. Livy's history, composed as the imperial autocracy of Augustus was replacing the republican system that had stood for over 500 years, presents in splendid style a vivid narrative of Rome's rise from the traditional foundation of the city in 753 or 751 BC to 9 BC and illustrates the collective and individual virtues necessary to achieve and maintain such greatness. Of its 142 books, conventionally divided into pentads and decads, we have 1-10 and 21-45 complete, and short summaries (periochae) of all the rest except 41 and 43-45; 11-20 are lost, and of the rest only fragments and the summaries remain. The fourth decad comprises two recognizable pentads: Books 31-35 narrate the Second Macedonian War (200-196) and its aftermath, then Books 36-40 the years from 191 to 180, when Rome crushed and shrank Antiochus' empire to extend and consolidate her mastery over the Hellenistic states. This edition replaces the original Loeb edition by Evan T. Sage."--Publisher's description

Principles of philosophy by René Descartes( Book )

19 editions published between 1650 and 1677 in Latin and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rene Descartes is perhaps most remembered for declaring, ""I think; therefore, I am."" First published in 1644, Descartes's ""Principles of Philosophy"" elucidates the meaning of those words that ushered in a new era of philosophical thought. Unlike the medieval philosophers who often began by examining the existence and nature of God in a spirit of faith, Descartes begins by reflecting upon himself as one who doubts but who nonetheless desires certain knowledge of God and the world. In setting forth the truths he discovers, Descartes hoped that his ""Principles of Philosophy"" would provide a
Elementa philosophica de cive by Thomas Hobbes( Book )

6 editions published between 1657 and 1669 in Latin and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De Cive ('On the citizen') was first published in 1642 under the title Elementorum philosophiae sectio tertia de cive, and one of Hobbes major works. It anticipates the classical republican line of argument in the better-known Leviathan. The famous phrase Bellum omnium contra omnes (war of all against all) appeared first in De Cive. This work comprises three parts: Libertas (liberty), Imperium (dominion), and Religio (religion). In the first part, Hobbes describes man natural condition, dealing with the natural laws; in the second, the necessity of establishing a stable government is indicated. Finally, in the third part, the most important statements are backed up theologically. De Cive was finished in November 1641 - before the English Civil War. The book was published in Latin in 1642; a revised edition appeared in 1647. It was translated into English, entitled Philosophicall Rudiments Concerning Government and Society (published in 1651). Macdonald and Hargreaves in their Hobbes bibliography record only one edition for the year 1669; there were 2, with identical title pages, signatures, and paging. In this edition the catchword on the recto of the 2nd prelim. leaf is "nun;" in the other it is "sui." Cf. NUC
