1 Ackrill, J. L. A NEW ARISTOTLE READER
Oxford At the Clarendon Press 1987 0198750692 / 9780198750697 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Scholar's bookplate to inner cover (G. P. Goold). Foxing/dustsoiling to top of textblock. Some foxing to textblock. ; In a single volume that will be of service to philosophy students of all levels and to their teachers, this reader provides modern, accurate translations of the texts necessary for a careful study of most aspects of Aristotle's philosophy. In selecting the texts Professor J. L. Ackrill has drawn on his broad experience of teaching graduate classes, and his choice reflects issues of current philosophical interest as well as the perennial themes. Only recent translations which achieve a high level of accuracy have been chosen; the aim is to place the Greekless reader, as nearly as possible, in the position of a reader of Greek. As an aid to study, Professor Ackrill supplies a valuable guide to the key topics covered. The guide gives references to the works or passages contained in the reader, and indication of their interrelations, and current bibliography. ; 580 pages

In this volume, the first comprehensive book in English about Epicurus, existing data on the life of the ancient philosopher is related to the development of his doctrine. The result is a fascinating account that challenges traditional theories and interpretations of Epicurean philosophy. Professor DeWitt demonstrates the fallacy of centuries of abuse of Epicurus and the resulting distortion of most discussions of Epicureanism that appear in standard philosophical works. Of major significance to students of philosophy and theology are the findings that show the importance of Epicureanism as a source of numerous Christian beliefs.

45 Diggle, James EURIPIDEA Collected Essays

Foxing/dustsoiling to top of textblock. DJ spine and part of rear panel sunned and discolored. ; James Diggle's groundbreaking studies on the text of Euripides, culminating in his new edition of the complete plays in the Oxford Classical Texts series, have won him a wide reputation as one of the leading authorities on Euripides. This collection comprises forty-one papers and reviews (including five previously unpublished papers) designed as a companion to the Oxford Text. The published papers and reviews have been lightly revised and updated and equipped with copious cross-references. There are full indexes. The collection not only offers a commentary on an extensive range of problematic passages in the plays; it also provides an up-to-date grammar of Euripidean usage--linguistic, stylistic, and metrical--and deals with many aspects of the manuscript tradition. ; 8.6 X 5.7 X 1.5 inches; 576 pages

Oxford Clarendon Press 1981 0198140193 / 9780198140191 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 
Scholar's bookplate to inner cover (G. P. Goold). Foxing/dustsoiling to top of textblock. DJ spine sunned. DJ is price-clipped. ; A discussion of the text or interpretation of passages from six plays by Euripides edited by the author for Oxford Classical Texts: Supplices, Electra, Heracles, Troades, Iphigenia in Tauris, Ion. In addition, if James Diggle has already discussed a passage from these plays in a published article, he has incorporated a reference to that discussion at the appropriate place, often adding new material. But the book is designed not only as a contribution to the amendment and interpretation of particular passages in these plays. Many of the notes are used as a basis for pursuing topics (whether linguistic or metrical) which are of general interest, and as a result the book will be of value to all future commentators on Greek tragedy. ; 127 pages
