This is one of my ten volume set of Classics Club books published by Walter J. Black, Inc. These Dialogues: Apology, Crito, Phaedo, Symposium, and Republic were translated by B. Jowett, edited with Introduction by Louise Ropes Loomis. This First hardbound Edition was printed in 1942.

This book took me months to get through, mostly because the language which is used is sometimes cryptic, and the footnotes don't offer a lot of insight into the time period. You should definitely know a bit about Hellenistic culture before reading. Overall, though, it's a vital resource to any who study philosophy. Plato and his ideas are timeless, and this is a great resource for those who want to read the best of his works.
