61 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 (3945 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.

72 Demosthenes; J. H. Vince (Trans. ) DEMOSTHENES: OLYNTHIACS; PHILIPPICS; MINOR PUBLIC SPEECHES; SPEECH AGAINST LEPTINES With an English Translation
Loeb Classical Library 1989 0674992636 / 9780674992634 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Foxing to textblock. Faint stain to front panel of DJ. ; Loeb Classical Library; 479 pages; Demosthenes (384322 BCE) , orator at Athens, was a pleader in law courts who later became also a statesman, champion of the past greatness of his city and the present resistance of Greece to the rise of Philip of Macedon to supremacy. We possess by him political speeches and law-court speeches composed for parties in private cases and political cases. His early reputation as the best of Greek orators rests on his steadfastness of purpose, his sincerity, his clear and pungent argument, and his severe control of language. In his law cases he is the advocate, in his political speeches a castigator not of his opponents but of their politics. Demosthenes gives us vivid pictures of public and private life of his time.
