    • Loeb Classical Library [Harvard University Press. September 2015, access 'in perpetuity' purchased.]

      The written treasures of the ancient Greek and Roman world. James Loeb founded the Loeb Classical Library in 1911, to make the work of classical authors accessible - regardless of knowledge of Greek or Latin. Since 1989, a renewal plan founded on the publication of four or five new volumes a year has been in place. This plan includes titles new to the Loeb Classical Library (such as Chariton), completely new editions and translations (such as Euripides), and thoroughly revised editions (such as Homer).Greek and Latin texts are alongside English translations. The authors in the Loeb Classical Library span fourteen centuries and every genre. Editors and translators are drawn from both sides of the Atlantic. New titles are added to the series, while existing titles are continually reprinted so that the complete Loeb Classical Library always remains in print.
