Rev. A. CARR, M.A. With 4 Maps. 45. 6d. “Copious illustrations, gathered from a great variety of sources, make his notes a very valuable aid to the student. They are indeed remarkably interesting, while all explanations on meanings, applications, and the like are distinguished by their lucidity and good sense.”— THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO ST MARK. By the Rev.

G. F. MACLEAR, D.D. With 3 Maps. 45. 6d. “The Cambridge Greek Testament, of which Dr Maclear's edition of the Gospel according to St Mark is a volume, certainly supplies a want. Without pretending to compete with the leading commentaries, or to embody very much original research, it forms a most satisfactory introduction to the study of the New Testament in the original ... Dr Maclear's introduction contains all that is known of St Mark's life, an account of the circumstances in which the Gospel was composed, an excellent sketch of the special characteristics of this Gospel; an analysis, and a chapter on the text of the New Testament generally ... The work is completed by three good maps.”-Saturday Review. THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO ST LUKE. By Archdeacon

of Greek in the University of Glasgow. 45. 6d. XENOPHON.—ANABASIS, BOOKS I. III. IV. and V.

With a Map and English Notes by AlfreD PRETOR, M.A., Fellow of St Catharine's College, Cambridge. 25. each. “We welcome this addition to the other books of the Anabasis so ably edited by Mr Pretor. Although originally intended for the use of candidates at the university local examinations, yet this edition will be found adapted not only to meet the wants of the junior student, but even advanced scholars will find much in this work that will repay its perusal.”—The Schoolmaster.

“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.

Mr Pretor's notes seem to be all that could be wished as regards grammar, geography, and other matters.—The Academy. BOOKS II. VI. and VII. By the same Editor. 25. 6d. each.

“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. XENOPHON-ANABASIS. By A. PRETOR, M.A., Text

School. 35. 64. ARISTOPHANES-AVES. By the same Editor, New

Edition. “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.

Reid, Litt. D., Fellow and Tutor of Gonville and Caius College. New

Edition, with Additions. 35. 6d. “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 scholarship 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, Litt. D. Revised Edition. 35. 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, Litt. D. Revised Edition. 23. “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, Litt. D. 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 P. CORNELIO SULLA

ORATIO. Edited by J. S. Reid, Litt. D. “Mr Reid is so well known to scholars as a commentator on Cicero that a new work from him scarcely needs any commendation of ours. His edition of the speech Pro Sulla is fully equal in merit to the volumes which he has already published . .. It would be difficult to speak too highly of the notes. There could be no better way of gaining an insight into the characteristics of Cicero's style and the Latinity of his period than by making a careful study of this speech with the aid of Alr Reid's commentary ... Mr Reid's intimate knowledge of the minutest details of scholarship enables him to detect and explain the slightest points of distinction between the usages of different authors and different periods The notes are followed by a valuable appendix on the text, and another on points of orthography; an excellent index brings the work to a close.”-Saturday Review. M. T. CICERONIS PRO CN. PLANCIO ORATIO. .

Edited by H. A. HOLDEN, LL.D., Examiner in Greek to the University of

London. Second Edition. As a book for students this edition can have few rivals. It is enriched by an excellent introduction and a chronological table of the principal events of the life of Cicero; while in its appendix, and in the notes on the text which are added, there is much of the greatest value. The volume is neatly got up, and is in every way"commendable."The Scotsman. M. T. CICERONIS IN Q. CAECILIUM DIVINATIO

St John's College, Cambridge. 35. M. T. CICERONIS ORATIO PRO L. MURENA, with

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

carefully revised. 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.

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

College, Oxford. 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 usages 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. M. ANNAEI LUCANI PHARSALIAE LIBER

PRIMUS, edited with English Introduction and Notes by W. E. HEITLAND, M.A. and C. E. HASKINS, M. A., Fellows and Lecturers of St John's Col. lege, Cambridge. “A careful and scholarlike production.”—Times.

“In nice parallels of Lucan from Latin poets and from Shakspeare, Mr Haskins and Mr Heitland deserve praise.”-Saturday Review. London: C. 7. CLAY & Sons, Cambridge University Press Warehouse,

MENT. I. With Maps and English Notes by A. G. PESKETT, M.A.,

Fellow of Magdalene College, Cambridge.

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 Eraminer.

"Much more attention is given to the literary aspect of the poem than is usually paid to it in editions intended for the use of beginners. The introduction points out the distinction between primitive and literary epics, explains the purpose of the poem, and gives an outline of the story. -Saturday Review.

“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.

(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. 35. 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, indices, and appendices.". -Academy.

"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.
