Cicero the Bibliophile, ad Atticum 1.11.3

“Be careful not to lend your books to anyone; save them, as you wrote, for me. I have a zeal for them which is matched only by my detestation of all other things right now…”


Libros vero tuos cave cuiquam tradas; nobis eos, quem ad modum scribis, conserva. Summum me eorum studium tenet sicut odium iam ceterarum rerum
