Respecting the remains of Ephesus Col. Leake observes, that, though still very considerable and of easy access,

They have hardly yet been sufficiently explored, or at least they have not yet been described to the public with the accuracy and detail which they merit. The temple of Diana Ephesia, the largest and most celebrated of the Asiatic Greek buildings, is the only one of the great examples of the Ionic order of which we do not now possess particulars more or less satisfactory. The temples at Samus, Branchida, Priene, Magnesia, and Sardes, have been measured and drawn by experieneed architects, but not a stone has yet been discovered that can with certaioty be ascribed to the Ephesian temple, although very little doubt remains as to its exact situation. P. 258. For the total disappearance of such a vast edifice our author accounts, by remarking its position near the sea, which facilitated the removal of its materials for the construction of new buildings during the long period of Grecian barbarism : whilst that gradual rising of the soil, which has not only obstructed the port near the temple, but has created a plain of three miles between it and the sea, must have buried every vestige of the temple that escaped removal ; an architect, however, would probably still find beneath the soil sufficient traces to afford a perfect knowlege of the original construction.

For Col, Leake's very interesting remarks on Troy, wbich occupy above thirty pages, we must refer to the work itself noticing a very curious sketch explaining the supposed alteration in the coast and in the rivers of Troy since the time of the celebrated war; and a map of the Troas from Rhæteium and Alexandreia to the summits of Mount Ida.

Although many remarks on the central parts of Asia Minor have already been made by our author in a Journal published among the collections of Mr. Walpole (vol. ii.), yet so much new matter has been added that the work before us appears as a most valuable acquisition to the classical antiquary and geographer.

We cannot close this interesting volume without noticing the admirable map of Asia Minor which illustrates it, executed by Mr. John Walker, after the drawing by Col. Leake.

This day are published,

QVINTI HORATII FLACCI OPERA. These editions of Virgil and Horace are intended to supply a desideratum which has been very long experienced, and which it is extraordinary should not before have been remedied. Of the two most popular Classics, we have not any edition of our own possessing either accuracy or beauty of typography, within the compass of a single volume; but we necessarily have recourse to those published at Paris, which are notoriously incorrect. The editions now offered for public patronage are printed from the purest versions; that of Virgil from Professor Heyne, and Horace from Gesner. The Text of both are corrected by a late master of one of our public schools, and each Volume is ornamented with a Bust, engraved in the finest manner by Finden, and with Designs by W. Westall, R. A.--As Prize Books, the masters of classical schools will find these editions the best adapted of any for the purpose of Rewards; and the Classical Reader will, for the first time, possess a Pocket Edition of two favorite Authors, uniting the combined advantages of great beauty with correctness of typography. Price of the 2 volumes, 18s., or separate_Virgil, 10s. -Horace, 8s. Printed for HARDING, TRIPHOOK, and LEPARD,

Finsbury Square.
