This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.

Description du livre Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. État : New. abridged edition. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from T. Lucreti Cari De Rerum Natura: Liber Quintus The fifth book of Lucretius contains some of his finest work and also, being less technical and dry than any of the other books, is best suited to serve as an introduction to the study of the De Rerum Natura, This edition has been prepared with that object in view: it aims both at explaining this one book in detail for beginners and at smoothing the way to the comprehension of other and more difficult parts of the poem. My obligations are very great, in all parts of my book, to Munros famous edition. In the Introduction, I have also made considerable use of Professor Sellars sympathetic and felicitous criticism in his two volumes on the Roman poets; and much of my fourth section is abridged from Zeller. For the astronomical section I have to thank the dexterity and kindness of Mr H. L. Callendar, Fellow of Trinity College. It may be worth saying here that the astronomical theories of Lucretius are simple enough, so long as they are purely fanciful, and difficult only when they approximate to the truth. Consequently the information here given is only a simplification of what may be found in the ordinary astronomical text-books.
