P. OVIDII NASONIS FASTORUM LIBER VI. With

a Plan of Rome and Notes by A. SIDGWICK, M.A. Tutor of Corpus Christi

College, Oxford. Price is. 6d. “Mr Sidgwick's editing of the Sixth Book of Ovid's Fasti furnishes a careful and serviceable volume for average students. It eschews construes' which supersede the use of the dictionary, but gives full explanation of grammatical rsages and historical and mythical allusions, besides illustrating peculiarities of style, true and false derivations, and the more remarkable variations of the text."-Saturday Review.

"It is eminently good and useful. ... The Introduction is singularly clear on the astronomy of Ovid, which is properly shown to be ignorant and confused; there is an excellent little map of Rome, giving just the places mentioned in the text and no more; the notes are evidently written by a practical schoolmaster."The Academy.

GAI IULI CAESARIS DE BELLO GALLICO COM

MENTARIUS SEPTIMUS. With two Plans and English Notes by A. G.

PESKETT, M.A. Fellow of Magdalene College, Cambridge. Price 25. "In an unusually succinct introduction he gives all the preliminary and collateral information that is likely to be useful to a young student ; and, wherever we have examined his notes, we have found them eminently practical and satisfying. . The book may well be recommended for careful study in school or college."-Saturday Review.

“The notes are scholarly, short, and a real help to the most elementary beginners in Latin prose." -The Examiner. BOOKS IV. AND V. by the same Editor. Price 25. BOOKS III. AND VI. by the same Editor. [Preparing

BEDA'S ECCLESIASTICAL HISTORY, BOOKS

III., IV., the Text from the very ancient MS. in the Cambridge University Library, collated with six other MSS. Edited, with a life from the German of Ebert, and with Notes, &c. by J. E. B. MAYOR, M.A., Professor of Latin, and J. R. LUMBY, D.D., Norrisian Professor of Divinity. Revised edition.

Price 75. 6d. "To young students of English History the illustrative notes will be of great service, while the study of the texts will be a good introduction to Mediæval Latin.”—The Nonconformist.

“In Bede's works Englishmen can go back to origines of their history, unequalled for form and matter by any modern European nation. Prof. Mayor has done good service in rendering a part of Bede's greatest work accessible to those who can read Latin with ease. He has adorned this edition of the third and fourth books of the “Ecclesiastical History" with that amazing erudition for which he is unrivalled among Englishmen and rarely equalled by Germans. And however interesting and valuable the text may be, we can certainly apply to his notes the expression, La sauce vaut mieux que le poisson. They are literally crammed with interest. ing information about early English life. For though ecclesiastical in name, Bede's history treats of all parts of the national life, since the Church had points of contact with all."-Examiner. P. VERGILI MARONIS AENEIDOS LIBER VIII. Edited

Is. 6d. each. “Mr Arthur Sidgwick's 'Vergil, Aeneid, Book XII.' is worthy of his reputation, and is dis. tinguished by the same acuteness and accuracy of knowledge, appreciation of a boy's difficulties and ingenuity and resource in meeting them, which we have on other occasions had reason to praise in these pages."

."-The Academy. As masterly in its clearly divided preface and appendices as in the sound and independent character of its annotations. There is a great deal more in the notes than mere compilation and suggestion. ... No difficulty is left unnoticed or unhandled.”-Saturday Review.

“This edition is admirably adapted for the use of junior students, who will find in it the result of much reading in a condensed form, and clearly expressed.”—Cambridge Independent Press. BOOKS VII. VIII. in one volume

English Introduction and Notes. By W. E. HEITLAND, M.A., Fellow and Classical Lecturer of St John's College, Cambridge. Second Edition,

carefully revised. Small 8vo. Price 35. “Those students are to be deemed fortunate who have to read Cicero's lively and brilliant oration for L. Murena with Mr Heitland's handy edition, which may be pronounced 'four-square' in point of equipment, and which has, not without good reason, attained the honours of a second edition.”-Saturday Review.

Gallic., Officier d'Académie, Assistant Master of Harrow School, and G. W. PROTHERO, M.A., Fellow and Tutor of King's College, Cam

bridge. 25. 61. "Messrs Masson and Prothero have, to judge from the first part of their work, performed with much discretion and care the task of editing Volta re's Siècle de Louis XIV for the Pitt Press Series.' Besides the usual kind of notes, the editors have in this case, influenced by Vol. taire's 'summary way of treating much of the history, given a good deal of historical informa, tion, in which they have, we think, done well. At the beginning of the book will be found excellent and succinct accounts of the constitution of the French army and Parliament at the period treated of."-Saturday Review.

Biographical Memoir, and Grammatical, Literary and Historical Notes. By C. Colbeck, M.A., late Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge; Assistant

Master at Harrow School. Price 25. It may be national prejudice, but we consider this edition far superior to any of the series which hitherto have been edited exclusively by foreigners. Mr Colbeck seems better to under. stand the wants and difficulties of an English boy. The etymological notes especially are admi. rable. ... The historical notes and introduction are a piece of thorough honest work." - Journal of Education, M. DARU, par M. C. A. SAINTE-BEUVE, (Causeries du

STAËL-HOLSTEIN, With a Critical Notice of the Author, a Chronological

Table, and Notes Historical and Philological. By G. MASSON. Price 25. “ Prussia under Frederick the Great, and France under the Directory, bring us face to face respectively with periods of history which it is right should be known thoroughly, and which are well treated in the Pitt Press volumes. The latter in particular, an extract from the world-known work of Madame de Staël on the French Revolution, is beyond all praise for the excellence both of its style and of its matter." - Times.

Par MADAME LA BARONNE De Staël-Holstein. With a Biographical
Sketch of the Author, a Selection of Poetical Fragments by Madame de
Staël's Contemporaries, and Notes Historical and Philological. By GUSTAVE

MASSON. Price 25. The choice made by M. Masson of the second book of the Memoirs of Madame de Staël appears specially felicitous.

This is likely to be one of the most favoured of M. Masson's editions, and deservedly so." -Academy.

by A. SCHLOTTMANN, Ph. D., Assistant Master at Uppingham School.

Price 35. 6d. “It is admirably edited, and we note with pleasure that Dr Schlottmann in his explanation always brings out the kinship of the English and German languages by reference to earlier or modern English and German forms as the case may be. The notes are valuable, and tell the student exactly what he will want to know, a merit by no means common.”

1."--Examiner. “As the work abounds in the idiomatic expressions and phrases that are characteristic of modern German, there are few books that can be read with greater advantage by the English student who desires to acquire a thorough knowledge of conversational German. The notes, without being cumbersome, leave no real difficulty unexplained."-School Guardian. DER OBERHOF. A Tale of Westphalian Life, by KARL

Arranged and Annotated by the same Editor. Price 25. "It carries the reader rapidly through some of the most important incidents connected with the German race and name, from the invasion of Italy by the Visigoths under their King Alaric, down to the Franco-German War and the installation of the present Emperor. The notes supply very well the connecting links between the successive periods, and exhibit in its various phases of growth and progress, or the reverse, the vast unwieldy mass which constitutes modern Germany." - Times. DER STAAT FRIEDRICHS DES GROSSEN. By G.

FREYTAG. With Notes. By the same Editor. Price 25. “Prussia under Frederick the Great, and France under the Directory, bring us face to face respectively with periods of history, which it is right should be known thoroughly, and which are well treated in the Pitt Press volumes."- Times.

"Freytag's historical sketches and essays are too well known in England to need any commendation, and the present essay is one of his best. Herr Wagner has made good use of Carlyle's great work in illustration of his author."- Journal of Education.
