The Loeb Classical Library is an essential set for anyone studying the classics. Founded by James Loeb in the early 20th century, the series was designed to make Greek and Latin classics accessible to everyone.
Loeb felt that reading Greek and Latin literature was of great value, writing:
It has always seemed to me a pity that the young people of our generation should grow up with such scant knowledge of Greek and Latin literature, its wealth and variety, its freshness and its imperishable quality. The day is past when schools could afford to give sufficient time and attention to the teaching of the ancient languages to enable the student to get that enjoyment out of classical literature that made the lives of our grandfathers so rich. The demand for something “more practical,” the large variety of subjects that must be taught, are crowding hard upon the Humanities.
To “make the beauty and learning, the philosophy and wit of the great writers of ancient Greece and Rome” accessible, Loeb paired Greek and Latin texts with English translations on facing pages for easy reference. The iconic print books were created in a size that could easily fit in a pocket for ready access.
Noet’s Loeb Classical Library Builder features 166 volumes—43,434 pages—of classic works, spanning from Plato to Prudentius, Apollodorus to Augustine, and Julius Caesar to Jerome.
The Noet editions, based on the iconic Loeb Classical Library print texts, continue James Loeb’s mission of making these timeless classics accessible.
