APPIAN
Roman History, Volume IV: Civil Wars, Books 1–2
Roman History, Volume V: Civil Wars, Books 3–4
Roman History, Volume VI: Civil Wars, Book 5. Fragments
Edited and Translated by Brian McGing
Appian, Roman History, Volume IV Appian (ca. AD 95–161) is a principal source for the history of the Roman Republic. His theme is the process by which Rome achieved her contemporary prosperity, and his method is to trace in individual books the story of each nation’s wars with Rome up through her own civil wars. This Loeb edition replaces the original (1912–13) by Horace White.
ARISTOTLE
Art of Rhetoric
Translated by J. H. Freese
Revised by Gisela Striker
Art of Rhetoric Aristotle (384–322 BC), the great Greek thinker, researcher, and educator, ranks among the most important and influential figures in the history of philosophy, theology, and science. Rhetoric, probably composed while he was still a member of Plato’s Academy, is the first systematic approach to persuasive public speaking and a classic of its kind.
LIVY
History of Rome, Volume VI
Edited and Translated by J. C. Yardley
History of Rome, Volume VI Livy (Titus Livius, 64 or 59 BC–AD 12 or 17), the great Roman historian, presents a vivid narrative of Rome’s rise from the traditional foundation of the city in 753 or 751 BC to 9 BC and illustrates the collective and individual virtues necessary to maintain such greatness. The third decad (21–30) chronicles the Second Punic War of 220–205 BC. This Loeb edition replaces the original (1940) by Frank Gardner Moore.

COVID-19 Response (March 2020)

 
sit bona librorum et provisae frugis in annum
copia, neu fluitem dubiae spe pendulus horae.
 
May I have a goodly supply of books and of food to last the year;
nor may I waver to and fro with the hopes of each uncertain hour.
 
Horace, Epistles 1.18.109–10
 
As the global community confronts the crisis posed by COVID-19, and individuals are increasingly required to limit contact with others, access to digital resources has become more important than ever before. When libraries and other centers of learning close their doors to limit the virus’ spread, students, scholars, and general readers wishing to consult the Greek and Latin classics are left with relatively few options for pursuing their education, research, and interest in the ancient world.
 
Accordingly, in the spirit of James Loeb’s original vision “to make the beauty and learning, the philosophy and wit of the great writers of ancient Greece and Rome once more accessible” at a time when they are sorely needed, the Trustees of the Loeb Classical Library and Harvard University Press announce that subscriptions to the digital Loeb Classical Library are made free to schools and universities impacted by COVID-19 until June 30, 2020. Contact loebclassics_sales@harvard.edu for more details.
