Classics Books Looking for a Home

Hugh Capon has a number of classical commentaries and books from his teaching days that he’d like to pass on to a good home. Please contact him at hvcapon@gmail.com if you you’re interested!

As suggested in your email of 24 January, the following are the texts in Greek/ Latin from my school days in the 1950s which I am happy to donate.
