    Of the remaining two-thirds, European imprints form a clear majority. And there are areas where European items are especially strong; for example, about 50 percent of the Library's rare books are of European origin. The Library's most valuable book collection, the incunabula, printed with movable type before , is almost exclusively European. In the long history of philosophy and literature, few have been so widely read and admired as the great thinkers of Greece and Rome. For modern audiences, this eBook bundle—which collects the Modern Library editions of three classics: Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations, Selected Dialogues of Plato, and The Basic Works of Aristotle—is the perfect introduction to the foundation of modern knowledge.

    Renouard's bibliography and history describes works published by the famous firm founded by Henri Estienne, who was an important printer and publisher of editions of Greek and Latin classics noted for their scholarship and accuracy. (Besterman, ). For a quick overview of 3, years of book making, selling, care and preservation—from roughly 2, B.C. to A.D.—this is the roll, or rather codex, to start with [D]iverting and instructive."—Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World.

      Introduction. The so-called Appendix Vergiliana (the name goes back to Joseph Scaliger’s first edition from ) comprises poems of different genres, form, and theme. There is no reliable knowledge about their authors. Until the Neronian period, they seem to have been unknown. From then onward, there are rare references in Roman literature to some of the texts. Three things that get better with age: cheese, wine, and books. We are particularly proud of our marvellous selection of vintage, old, and rare books. A book is much more than its cover and our rare books range is here to prove it. From out of print books to antique and collectables, go digging beneath the dust covers and you may find a real gem.
