1 Macrobius; Robert A. Kaster (Ed. ) [MACROBIUS] MACROBII AMBROSII THEODOSII SATURNALIA Recognovit Brevique Adnotatione Critica Robert A. Kaster
Oxford Clarendon Press 2011 0199571198 / 9780199571192 Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Book has very light shelfwear else fine. DJ has a bit of minor creasing ; Latin Text with Latin Apparatus; Oxford Classical Texts Oct (Scriptorum Classicorum Bibliotheca Oxoniensis) Oxoniensis; 600 pages; The Saturnalia, Macrobius' encyclopaedic celebration of Roman culture, has been prized since the Renaissance as a treasure trove of ancient lore, much of it otherwise unattested. Cast in the form of a dialogue and arranged (by modern editors) in seven books, it treats subjects as diverse as the divinity of the Sun and the quirks of human digestion, and above all the poetry of Vergil, whom it presents as the master of all human knowledge, from diction and rhetoric to philosophy and religion. This new edition provides a significantly improved text and critical apparatus.
