PREFACE.

BESIDES the books to which I have expressed my obligations in my editions of the first seven commentaries, I may here mention the following as having been of service to me in writing my notes on this book:

A. Holder. C. Iuli Caesaris Belli Gallici Libri vii. Accessit A.

Hirti Liber Octavus. Freiburg and Tübingen 1882. [A recension of the text with a conspectus of the more important ms readings and a useful though not quite accurate index of words

to Books I. to vii. and viii, separately.] A. Doberenz. C. Iulii Caesaris Commentarii de Bello Gallico.

Für den Schulgebrauch erklärt. Ed. 8, revised by G. B.

Dinter.
E. Fischer. Das achte Buch vom Gallischen Kriege und das

bellum Alexandrinum. Eine Studie. Programm der könig-
lichen Studienanstalt Passau zum Schlusse des Schuljahres
1879–80. [The writer examines the language of Book viii.
and institutes a comparison between it and that of the Bellum
Alexandrinum. He concludes thus-Ich schliesse mit Viel-
haber's Worten “es ist noch nicht erwiesen, dass beide Com-

mentare von demselben Verfasser stammen.”] Th. Mommsen. Die Rechtsfrage zwischen Caesar und dem Senat.

Printed among the Abhandlungen der Historisch-Philosophi

schen Gesellschaft in Breslau. Vol. 1. 1858. I have also consulted various articles and reviews in the Philologus, the Zeitschrift für die Oesterreichischen Gymnasien and Bursian's Jahresbericht. Lastly, all students of Caesar will be grateful to H. Merguet for undertaking a complete Lexicon to Caesar and his continuators, on the plan of his well-known lexicon to Cicero's speeches. The first part only of this work has appeared at present. A map of Gaul accompanies this edition ; A. von Kampen's special maps and plans are cheap and accessible and should always be used by readers of Caesar.
