Eschylus.-AÆSCHYLI EUMENIDES. The Greek Text, with English Notes and English Verse, Translation, and an Introduction. By BERNARD DRAKE, M.A., late Fellow of King's College, Cambridge. 8vo. 35. 6d.

The Greek text adopted in this Edition is based upon that of Wellauer, which may be said, in general terms, to represent that of the best manuscripts. But in correcting the Text, and in the Notes, advantage has been taken of the suggestions of Hermann, Paley, Linwood, and other commentators. In the Translation, the simple character of the Eschylean dialogues has generally enabled the author to render them without any material deviation from the construction and idioms of the original Greek.

"The Notes are judicious, and, a rare merit in English Notes, not too numerous or too long. A most useful feature in the work is the Analysis of Müller's celebrated dissertations."-BRITISH QUARTERLY REVIEW.

AN INTRODUCTION

ARISTOTLE'S

RHETORIC. With Analysis, Notes, and Appendices. By E. M. COPE, Senior Fellow and Tutor of Trinity College, Cambridge. 8vo. 14s.

This work is introductory to an edition of the Greek Text of Aristotle's Rhetoric, which is in course of preparation. Its object is to render that treatise thoroughly intelligible. The author has aimed to illustrate, as preparatory to the detailed explanation of the work, the general bearings and relations of the Art of Rhetoric in itself, as well as the special mode of treating it adopted by Aristotle in his peculiar system. The evidence upon obscure or doubtful questions connected with the subject is examined; and the relations which Rhetoric bears, in Aristotle's view, to the kindred art of Logic are fully considered. A connected Analysis of the work is given, sometimes in the form of paraphrase; and a few important matters are separately discussed in Appendices. There is added, as a general Appendix, by way of specimen of the antagonistic system of Isocrates and others, a complete analysis of the treatise called Ῥητοριχὴ πρὸς ̓Αλέξανδρον, with a discussion of its authorship and of the probable results of its teaching.

ARISTOTLE ON FALLACIES; OR, THE SOPHISTICI ELENCHI. With a Translation and Notes by EDWARD POSTE, M.A., Fellow of Oriel College, Oxford. 8vo. 8s. 6d.

Besides the doctrine of Fallacies, Aristotle offers, either in this treatise or in other passages quoted in the commentary, various glances over the world of science and opinion, various suggestions or problems which are still agitated, and a vivid picture of the ancient system of dialectics, which it is hoped may be found both interesting and instructive. "It is not only scholarlike and careful, it is also perspicuous."-GUARDIAN. 66 "It is indeed a work of great skill."-SATURDAY REVIEW.

Blackie.-GREEK AND ENGLISH DIALOGUES FOR USE
IN SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES. By JOHN STUART BLACKIE,
Professor of Greek in the University of Edinburgh.
2s. 6d.

Fcap. 8vo.

"Why should the old practice of conversing in Latin and Greek be altogether discarded?"-PROFESSOR JOWETT. Г.

Professor Blackie has been in the habit, as part of the regular training of his class in Edinburgh University, of accustoming the students to converse in Greek. This method he has found to be eminently successful as a means of furnishing the students with a copious vocabulary, training them to use it promptly, confidently, and with correct articulation, and instilling into them an accurate and intelligent knowledge of Greek Grammar. He believes his method may be used with equal success by others; he has therefore in the present little volume furnished a series of twenty-five graduated Dialogues in parallel columns of Greek and English on a great variety of interesting subjects. In the Preface, the Author fully explains the aim of the book, and the principle on which he himself intends to use it; where also, as well as in the Preliminary Remarks on Orthoepy, he gives a brief account of his theory of Greek Pronunciation, a theory now approved of by the most eminent English scholars. The work has been revised by several scholars of repute, both English and Scotch. The GLOBE says: "Professor Blackie's system is sensible; his book is likely to be useful to teachers of Greek; and his suggestions valuable to the learners of any language."

HALM. Edited, with Corrections and Additions, by JOHN E. B.
