Review #7 - De Officiis (Loeb Classical Library No. 30) by Marcus Tullius Cicero (1938)

Founded by James Loeb in 1911, the Loeb Classical Library presents important Classical Greek and Latin literature with facing English translations. These distinctive hardcover bindings are issued in green (for Greek) and red (for Latin).

Number 30 in the series, De Officiis (On Obligations) is an essay by Cicero (106-43 BCE) to his son Marcus, then studying at Athens, on the nature of honourable conduct. It was written in late 44 BCE after the assassination of Julius Caesar, and was divided into three books.

Translated into English by Walter Miller (1864-1949), Professor of Latin at the University of Missouri. For modern translations, see Winterbottom (1996) and Walsh (2000).

First published by Heinemann in 1913. Reprinted in 1921, 1928 and this edition 1938. On earlier printings, the hard-to-see volume number is stamped on the back cover, in the lower right corner. Frontispiece of Cicero is not present in this reprint. - IRONJAW'S BOOK REVIEW, Review #7. January 28th 2015 . ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0674990331, Hardcover)

Cicero (Marcus Tullius, 106–43 BCE), Roman lawyer, orator, politician and philosopher, of whom we know more than of any other Roman, lived through the stirring era which saw the rise, dictatorship, and death of Julius Caesar in a tottering republic. In his political speeches especially and in his correspondence we see the excitement, tension and intrigue of politics and the part he played in the turmoil of the time. Of about 106 speeches, delivered before the Roman people or the Senate if they were political, before jurors if judicial, 58 survive (a few of them incompletely). In the fourteenth century Petrarch and other Italian humanists discovered manuscripts containing more than 900 letters of which more than 800 were written by Cicero and nearly 100 by others to him. These afford a revelation of the man all the more striking because most were not written for publication. Six rhetorical works survive and another in fragments. Philosophical works include seven extant major compositions and a number of others; and some lost. There is also poetry, some original, some as translations from the Greek.

The Loeb Classical Library edition of Cicero is in twenty-nine volumes.
