William Heinemann & Harvard University Press 1961 0674991273 / 9780674991279 Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
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.

24 Babrius & Phaedrus; Ben Edwin Perry ( Tr. ) BABRIUS AND PHAEDRUS Newly Edited and Translated Into English, Together with an Historical Introduction and a Comprehensive Survey of Greek and Latin Fables in the Aesopic Tradition
Harvard University Press & William Heinemann 1965 0674994809 / 9780674994805 Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Scholar's bookplate to inner cover and name to ffep (Robert Brown). Additional name to ffep crossed out. Very light bump to 1 corner. ; Babrius is the reputed author of a collection (discovered in the 19th century) of more than 125 fables based on those called Aesop's, in Greek verse. He may have been a hellenised Roman living in Asia Minor during the late 1st century of our era. The fables are all in one metre and in very good style, humorous and pointed. Some are original. Phaedrus, born in Macedonia, flourished in the early half of the 1st century of our era. Apparently a slave set free by the emperor Augustus, he lived in Italy and began to write Aesopian fables. When he offended Sejanus, a powerful official of the emperor Tiberius, he was punished but not silenced. The fables, in five books, are in lively terse and simple Latin verse not lacking in dignity. They not only amuse and teach but also satirise social and political life in Rome. This edition includes a comprehensive analytical Survey of Greek and Latin fables in the Aesopic tradition, as well as a historical introduction. ; Loeb Classical Library No. 436; 634 pages

33 Celsus; W. G. Spencer (Trans. ) CELSUS: DE MEDICINA III [On Medicine, Vol. 3]
Harvard University Press & William Heinemann 1961 0674993705 / 9780674993709 Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Light bumping to top of spine. Scholar's bookplate to inner cover (Robert Brown). Scholar's name to ffep (Robert Brown). ; Loeb Classical Library No. 336; Vol. 3; 368 pages;

A. Cornelius Celsus was author, probably during the reign of the Roman Emperor Tiberius (14–37 CE), of a general encyclopaedia of agriculture, medicine, military arts, rhetoric, philosophy, and jurisprudence, in that order of subjects. Of all this great work there survives only the 8 books on medicine (De Medicina). Book I: after an excellent survey of Greek schools (Dogmatic, Methodic, Empiric) of medicine come sensible dietetics or health preservation which will always be applicable. Book II: deals with prognosis, diagnosis of symptoms (which he stresses strongly), and general therapeutics. Book III: internal ailments: fevers and general diseases. Book IV: local bodily diseases. Next come two pharmacological books, Book V: treatment by drugs of general diseases; and Book VI: of local diseases. Book VII and Book VIII deal with surgery; these books contain accounts of many operations, including amputation.

Celsus was not a professional doctor of medicine or a surgeon, but a practical layman whose On Medicine, written in a clear and neat style, for lay readers, is partly a result of his medical treatment of his household (slaves included) and partly a presentation of information gained from many Greek authorities. From no other source can we learn so much of the condition of medical science up to his own time.

The Loeb Classical Library edition of Celsus is in three volumes.

47 Claudian; Maurice Platnauer CLAUDIAN Volume I
William Heinemann & Harvard University Press 1963 0674991508 / 9780674991507 Hardcover Good+ with no dust jacket 
Pen notes and underlining to about 12 pages or so. Else minor shelfwear. Scholar's bookplate to inner cover (Robert Brown). Scholar's name to ffep (Robert Brown). ; Loeb Classical Library; Vol. 1; 393 pages; Claudius Claudianus, Latin poet of great affairs, flourished during the joint reigns (394–5 CE onwards) of the brothers Honorius (Emperor in the West) and Arcadius (in the East). Apparently a native of Greek Alexandria in Egypt, he was, to judge by his name, of Roman descent, though his first writings were in Greek, and his pure Latin may have been learned by him as a foreign language. About 395 CE he moved to Italy (Milan and Rome) and though really a pagan, became a professional court-poet composing for Christian rulers works which give us important knowledge of Honorius's time. A panegyric on the brothers Probinus and Olybrius (consuls together in 395) was followed during ten years by other poems (mostly epics in hexameters) : in praise of consulships of Honorius (395, 398, 404 CE) ; against the Byzantine ministers Rufinus (396) and Eutropius (399) ; in praise of the consulship (400) of Stilicho (Honorius's guardian, general, and minister) ; in praise of Stilicho's wife Serena; mixed metres on the marriage of Honorius to their daughter Maria; on the war with the rebel Gildo in Africa (398) ; on the Getic or Gothic war (402) ; on Stilicho's success against the Goth Alaric (403) ; on the consulship of Manlius Theodorus (399) ; and on the wedding of Palladius and Celerina. Less important are non-official poems such as the three books of a mythological epic on the Rape of Proserpina, unfinished as was also a Battle of Giants (in Greek). Noteworthy are Phoenix, Senex Veronensis, elegiac prefaces, and the epistles, epigrams, and idylls. Through the patronage of Stilicho or through Serena, Claudius in 404 married well in Africa and was granted a statue in Rome. Nothing is known of him after 404. In his poetry are true poetic as well as rhetorical skill, command of language, polished style, diversity, vigour, satire, dignity, bombast, artificiality, flattery, and other virtues and faults of the earlier 'silver' age in Latin.
