A Guide to the Classics

Michael Oakeshott and G.T. Griffith, A Guide to the Classics, or, How to Pick the Derby Winner. London: Faber and Faber, 1936.

“[To the 1930’s] also belongs the book that Oakshott co-authored with Guy Griffith, A Guide to the Classics, which, to the disappointment of many a student of political philosophy turned out to be not about Plato and Aristotle but about the fine art of judging horseflesh and picking a Derby winner.” From A Companion to Michael Oakshott, pg. 3
