On Old Age was the first ancient text in translation that publisher Benjamin Franklin chose for release in America. He was rightfully proud of his now much admired 1743 edition and anticipated, with his customary wry wit, that reading it would give pleasure:

"I have, Gentle Reader, as thou seest, printed this Piece of Cicero's in a large and fair Character, that those who begin to think on the Subject of OLD AGE, (which seldom happens till their Sight is somewhat impair'd by its Approaches) may not, in Reading, by the Pain small Letters give the Eyes, feel the Pleasure of the Mind in the least allayed."

Franklin was not alone among American patriots in his praise of Cicero, about whom John Adams remarked: "All ages of the world have not produced a greater statesman and philosopher combined."

Cicero's On Old Age speaks as directly to all of us today -- those approaching old age as well as the younger -- as it did to Franklin and Adams. Long considered one of Cicero's most engaging, charming, and readable treatises, it quite simply transcends time. Cicero steps out of the persona of the 'great man' and examines, with superlative clarity, the challenges all human beings must one day face.

-- From the back cover

The relevance of Cicero's On Old Age transcends time and culture as it examines with superlative clarity the challenging problem of aging.

Cicero brilliantly addresses the aspects of old age and its sociological problems in a manner that is as relevant today as it was two thousand years ago. With Latin text, notes, and vocabulary, this is a valuable text that intermediate students will find instructive and insightful.
