Book selected: The Nature of Things
by Lucretius Carus, Titus.
Translator: Copley, Frank Olin. Year/Format: 1977, Book, xxi, 177 p. ;

This great poem stands with Virgil's Aeneid as one of the vital and enduring achievements of Latin literature. Lost for more than a thousand years, its return to circulation in 1417 reintroduced dangerous ideas about the nature and meaning of existence and helped shape the modern world.
(there are many different editions in the Library ranging from 177 pages to about 600 pages so we might have to struggle to find out where we are - the above one translated by F.O. Copely is a modern one, only 177 pages and can be purchased at Indigo).  Here is a short list of Toronto used book stores: 

The book is also available for free at Project Gutenberg.
