THE ANABASIS OF XENOPHON, BOOK VII. With

a Map and English Notes by ALFRED PRETOR, M.A., Fellow of St Catharine's College, Cambridge ; Editor of Persius and Cicero ad Atticum

Book 1. Price 25. 6d. "In Mr Pretor's edition of the Anabasis the text of Kühner has been followed in the main, while the exhaustive and admirable notes of the great German editor have been largely utilised. These notes deal with the minutest as well as the most important difficulties in construction, and all questions of history, antiquity, and geography are briefly but very effectually elucidated.”—The Examiner. BOOKS I. III. IV. & V. By the same Editor. 25. each. BOOKS II. and VI. By the same Editor. Price 2s. 6d. each.

"Mr Pretor's 'Anabasis of Xenophon, Book IV. displays a union of accurate Cambridge scholarship, with experience of what is required by learners gained in examining middle-class schools. The text is large and clearly printed, and the notes explain all difficulties. Pretor's notes seem to be all that could be wished as regards grammar, geography, and other matters.”The Academy.

“Another Greek text, designed it would seem for students preparing for the local examinations, is ‘Xenophon's Anabasis,' Book II., with English Notes, by Alfred Pretor, M.A. The editor has exercised his usual discrimination in utilising the text and notes of Kuhner, with the occasional assistance of the best hints of Schneider, Vollbrecht and Macmichael on critical matters, and of Mr R. W. Taylor on points of history and geography, When Mr Pretor commits himself to Commentator's work, he is eminently helpful. Had we to introduce a young Greek scholar to Xenophon, we should esteem ourselves fortunate in having Pretor's text-book as our chart and guide."--Contemporary Review. AGESILAUS OF XENOPHON. The Text revised

with Critical and Explanatory Notes, Introduction, Analysis, and Indices. By H. HAILSTONE, M.A., late Scholar of Peterhouse, Cambridge, Editor of

Xenophon's Hellenics, etc. Cloth. ARISTOPHANES-RANAE. With English Notes and

"The notes to both plays are excellent. Much has been done in these two volumes to render the study of Aristophanes a real treat to a boy instead of a drudgery, by helping him to understand the fun and to express it in his mother tongue."- The Examiner. EURIPIDES. HERCULES FURENS. With Intro

ductions, Notes and Analysis. By J. T. HUTCHINSON, M. A., Christ's College,

and A. GRAY, M.A., Fellow of Jesus College. Cloth, 25. "Messrs Hutchinson and Gray have produced a careful and useful edition."-Saturday Review.

(In the Press. LUCIANI SOMNIUM CHARON PISCATOR ET DE

LUCTU, with English Notes by W. E. HEITLAND, M.A., Fellow, of
St John's College, Cambridge. New Edition, with Appendix. 35. 6d.

II. LATIN. M. T. CICERONIS DE AMICITIA. Edited by J. S.

Reid, M.L., Fellow of Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge. Price 3s. “Mr Reid has decidedly attained his aim, namely, 'a thorough examination of the Latinity of the dialogue.' The revision of the text is most valuable, and comprehends sundry acute corrections. This volume, like Mr Reid's other editions, is a solid gain to the scholar. ship of the country.”-A thenæum.

"A more distinct gain to scholarship is Mr Reid's able and thorough edition of the De Amicitiâ of Cicero, a work of which, whether we regard the exhaustive introduction or the instructive and most suggestive commentary, it would be difficult to speak too highly. . . . When we come to the commentary, we are only amazed by its fulness in proportion to its bulk. Nothing is overlooked which can tend to enlarge the learner's general knowledge of Ciceronian Latin or to elucidate the text."-Saturday Review. M. T. CICERONIS CATO MAJOR DE SENECTUTE.

Edited by J. S. Reid, M.L. Price 3s. 6d. The notes are excellent and scholarlike, adapted for the upper forms of public schools, and likely to be useful even to more advanced students."--Guardian. M. T. CICERONIS ORATIO PRO ARCHIA POETA.

Edited by J. S. Reid, M.L. Price is. 6d. " It is an admirable specimen of careful editing.. An Introduction tells us everything we could wish to know about Archias, about Cicero's connexion with him, about the merits of the trial, and the genuineness of the speech. The text is well and carefully printed. The notes are clear and scholar-like. . . . No boy can master this little volume without feeling that he has advanced a long step in scholarship.”—The Academy. M. T. CICERONIS PRO L. CORNELIO BALBO ORA

TIO. Edited by J. S. Reid, M.L. Fellow of Caius College, Cambridge. Price is. 6d. We are bound to recognize the pains devoted in the annotation of these two orations to the minute and thorough study of their Latinity, both in the ordinary notes and in the textual appendices."-Saturday Review. M. T. CICERONIS PRO CN. PLANCIO ORATIO.

Edited by H. A. Holden, LL.D., Head Master of Ipswich School.

Price 45. 61. QUINTUS CURTIUS. A Portion of the History,

(ALEXANDER IN INDIA.) By W. E. HEITLAND, M. A., Fellow and Lecturer of St John's College, Cambridge, and T. E. RAVEN, B.A., Assistant Master

in Sherborne School. Price 3.5. 6d. “Equally commendable as a genuine addition to the existing stock of school-books is Alexander in India, a compilation from the eighth and ninth books of Q. Curtius, edited for the Pitt Press by Messrs Heitland and Raven... The work of Curtius has merits of its own, which, in former generations, made it a favourite with English scholars, and which still make it a popular text book in Continental schools. The reputation of Mr Heitland is a sufficient guarantee for the scholarship of the notes, which are ample without being excessive, and the book is well furnished with all that is needful in the nature of maps, indexes, and appendices." - Academy.
