Some additional Josephus

Hi ya,


  Pushing this boat out to see if it floats. :)


  In Accordance we have the Whiston English translation but not commentary or notes.


  It would be really nice to get these :


  Josephus, The Life, Against Apion, with English translation by Henry St. John Thackeray (https://www.amazon.com/Josephus-Life-Against-Classical-Library/dp/0674992059/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1528290004&sr=8-1-fkmr0&keywords=Josephus%2C+The+Life%2C+Against+Apion%2C+with+English+translation+by+Henry+St.+John+Thackeray). This is the Loeb edition. Now, of course it would be nice to have the English and the Greek as the Greek text is not a pure Niese text, which is what the Greek Acc text is right now. Of course the front matter and notes would be great in a companion tool.


  Flavius Josephus, Life of Josephus, Translation and Commentary by Steve Mason, published by Brill. This has no Greek text but it has a new comparatively literal translation and extensive commentary, a substantial appendix on archaeology of Galilee and various indexes, such as of Greek words, persons, ancient texts. Again a pair of companion modules would be way cool. This is the hardcover from the commentary series Mason is editor of (https://www.amazon.com/Flavius-Josephus-Translation-Commentary-Life/dp/9004117938/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1528290036&sr=1-1&keywords=Flavius+Josephus%2C+Life+of+Josephus%2C+Translation+and+Commentary+by+Steve+Mason) but there is a paperback copy at a much more reasonable price (https://www.amazon.com/Flavius-Josephus-Life-Steve-Mason/dp/039104205X/ref=sr_1_fkmr3_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1528290119&sr=1-2-fkmr3&keywords=Flavius+Josephus%2C+Life+of+Josephus%2C+Translation+and+Commentary+by+Steve+Mason )


EDIT: added links.
