In How to Grow Old Cicero shows that old age is not only tolerable, but comfortable by internal resources of happiness. Cicero maintains that some disadvantages are imaginary, and for any real pleasures of which the old are deprived, others more refined and higher may be substituted. In A Guide to Friendship, Cicero explains how to discover, maintain, and enjoy friendships.

The rediscovery of Cicero's letters is credited for initiating the 14th-century Renaissance in public affairs, humanism, and classical Roman culture. The peak of Cicero's authority and prestige came during the 18th-century Enlightenment, and his impact on leading Enlightenment thinkers and political theorists such as John Locke, David Hume, Montesquieu and Edmund Burke was substantial. His works rank among the most influential in European culture, and today still constitute one of the most important bodies of primary material for the writing and revision of Roman history, especially the last days of the Roman Republic.

This case laminate collector's edition includes a Victorian inspired dust-jacket.
