A Checklist of the Sather Lectures Published by the University of California Press
The Sather Lectures - now referred to as The Sather Classical Lectures on the University of California
Press website - began in the 1920's from a professorship funded by a grant from Jane Sather, who also
gave the funds for the Sather Gate and the Sather Tower at the University of California Berkeley. It has
been an interesting and extremely successful series, with most titles going though multiple printings or
and editions. The University of California Press shows (as of April 2018) 31 of the titles as still in print. The press
published a history of the lectureship in 1965: Fifty years of Sathers : the Sather professorship of classical literature in the University of California, Berkeley, 1913/4-1964/4 , by Sterling Dow.
A complete list of the holders of the professorship is at Past
and Future Sather Professors. This PagesOfPages listing provides slightly more bibliographical detail, as well
as links to assist in locating copies.
The sequence numbers are assigned on publication; they do not represent the order in which the authors
held their appointments. A few of the titles did not appear until 10 or 15 years after the date of the appointment;
in a few cases no book has ever been published.
Arrangement is by publication sequence, each entry in the series is given a volume number by the publisher.
When an author name is a link it is to an article about the author; usually wikipedia. I included
only English-language sources; there are a number of classicists where the German-language wikipedia has
entries, but the English-language does not.
Links to addall, biblio, amazon and alibris are links to searches for copies of the Sather Lectures
Search terms are isbn (when available), author and title (sometimes abbreviated) and y with an added keyword
of "sather". Removing the "sather" key word may cause more results to be returned.
Links to WorldCat list libraries holding copies. Most academic libraries will have many of the volumes.
isbn's are intended to be for the original edition, but that is mostly unverified.
