Joint Library of the Hellenic & Roman Societies
#1
I thought the esteemed members of the Forum might like to see the latest Aquisitions lists for the above Societies' Library.

If nothing else it serves to show the huge amount of published works in our area of interest. It is international in the true sense of the word with titles in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Merlot in one hand, Cigar in the other; body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!
