Latin-Greek Lexicon

I found a Latin-Greek Lexicon at a bookstore here in Memphis from 1767. Anyone have any ideas on the best ways to preserve such a book?

Beginning Attic Texts

In 1988 I took an incredibly intense Attic Greek class; by the end we had read Plato's *Ion* and Euripedes *Medea*. I thought I was going to write a philosophy thesis with my new-found Greek, but my life went otherwise.

Pronouncing sigma before a voiced consonant in the next word

For example (in the Iliad line 5):

Dio\j d' e0telei/eto boulh&

De hominis natura

Quot hora, pueri puellaeque? Hora philosophiae!

Agite amici, de natura hominis dicamus. Atque prima quaestio est:
“Utrum natura hominis est mala an bona? Cur :?: ”

(Obsecro autem vos responsum facilum et brevum scribere, quod potestas latinae scribendae mea parvula est) :oops:
