2 Blaise, Albert & (Grant C. Roti, Trans. ) A HANDBOOK OF CHRISTIAN LATIN: Style, Morphology and Syntax
Georgetown University Press 1994 0878402373 / 9780878402373 Hardcover Very Good 
Very faint dampstaining near lower corner of front board. Else book is fine. ; This little book by Albert Blaise has already performed a great service for all who are interested in Christian Latin literature. The reader who is familiar only with Classical Latin feels helpless in the presence of certain forms, certain expressions, and certain grammatical anomalies which seem to him incorrect, even aberrant. The Handbook of Christian Latin, making no pretense of erudition, follows step by step classical stylistics and grammar, describing succinctly the characteristics of Christian Latin in the many phases of its evolution and its divergence from classical usage. This practical method has proved its usefulness; the numerous, repeated demands for the book since the depletion of the first printing are evidence of this. The contents of this work were originally intended to serve as an introduction to the Dictionnaire latin-français des auteurs chrétiens. In contrast to the Dictionnaire , which extends its investigations to the end of the Merovingian period, only examples taken from the Patristic period, properly speaking, are mentioned (with some very rare exceptions). ; 10.3 X 6.4 X 0.9 inches; 157 pages

15 Lysias; W. R. M. Lamb (Trans.) LYSIAS With an English Translation
Harvard University Press & William Heinemann 1988 0674992695 / 9780674992696 Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Scholar's name to ffep else book is fine. Light shelfwear to DJ. ; Loeb Classical Library No. 244; 736 pages; Lysias (ca. 458-ca. 380 BCE) , born at Athens, son of a wealthy Syracusan settled in Attica, lived in Peiraeus, where with his brother he inherited his father's shield factory. Being a loyal supporter of democracy, Lysias took the side of the democrats at Athens against the Thirty Tyrants in 404, supplying shields and money. After one political speech in accusation of Eratosthenes (one of the Thirty) in 405, he became at Athens a busy professional speech writer for the law courts. At the Olympic festival of 388 he denounced, with riotous results, the costly display of the embassy sent by Dionysius I of Syracuse and the domination of Sicily by Dionysius. The surviving speeches of Lysias (about thirty complete out of a very much larger number) are fluent, simple and graceful in style yet vivid in description. They suggest a passionate partisan who was also a gentle humorous man. We see in him the art of oratory young and fresh.
