* Book Notes discuss books on ancient philosophy that are sent to the journal for review.

F. Verde, Elachista.1 This substantial monograph, based on a Rome PhD thesis, is the first devoted wholly to the Epicurean doctrine of minimal parts. The three chapters offer (1) an analysis of the primary sources for the doctrine in Epicurus and Lucretius, (2) a reconstruction of the likely philosophical background for its formulation, and (3) a detailed study of the largely geometrical development of the theory within the Epicurean school. Verde has distinctive claims to make on all these topics.
