Scholar's bookplate to inner cover (Robert Brown). Corner creasing to a few pages. ; Loeb Classical Library No. 115; 367 pages; Ausonius (Decimus Magnus) , ca. 310–ca. 395 CE, a doctor's son, was born at Burdigala (Bordeaux). After a good education in grammar and rhetoric and a short period during which he was an advocate, he took to teaching rhetoric in a school which he began in 334. Among his students was Paulinus, who was afterwards Bishop of Nola; and he seems to have become some sort of Christian himself. Thirty years later Ausonius was called by Emperor Valentinian to be tutor to Gratian, who subsequently as emperor conferred on him honours including a consulship in 379. In 383, after Gratian's murder, Ausonius retired to Bordeaux. Ausonius's surviving works, some with deep feeling, some composed it seems for fun, some didactic, include much poetry: poems about himself and family, notably "The Daily Round"; epitaphs on heroes in the Trojan War, memorials on Roman emperors, and epigrams on various subjects; poems about famous cities and about friends and colleagues. "The Moselle," a description of that river, is among the most admired of his poems. There is also an address of thanks to Gratian for the consulship. The second volume includes Eucharisticus ("Thanksgiving") by Paulinus Pellaeus.

19 Ausonius; N. M. Kay AUSONIUS: EPIGRAMS Text with Introduction and Commentary
Duckworth 2001 0715631055 / 9780715631058 Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Book has very light shelfwear else fine. DJ has faint creasing along upper edge with very light edgewear to extremities. ; Decimus Magnus Ausonius of Bordeaux, whose life spanned the greater part of the fourth century AD, was one of the most significant literary and political figures of his age. After an academic career in his native Gaul he was appointed tutor to the future emperor Gratian, a position through which he achieved great power for himself and his family. He was made consul in 379 and later lived to enjoy a ripe old age as the grand old man of Latin letters. In this modern edition of Ausonius' short poems, collected together under the general heading of epigrams, N. M. Kay gives a line-by-line commentary dealing with points of literary, linguistic, historical interest. The epigrams throw light on many aspects of Ausonius' life, career and attitudes as well as on fourth-century Latin literature, and will thus be of interest to students of the fourth-century western world, of Latin literature, and of the epigram form in particular. This edition includes both Latin text and translation. ; 256 pages
