Æschylus.--ÆSCHYLI EUMENIDES. The Greek Text, with
English Notes and English Verse, Translation, and an Introduction.
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 Greck ; B. 4.

“ 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.
Aristotle. — AN INTRODUCTION TO ARISTOTLE'S
RHETORIC. With Analysis, Notes, and Appendices. By E.
bridge. 8vo. 145.
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 'PnTopex) apds 'Aréfavdpov, 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. 6s. 64. 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. “ It is indeed a work of great skill.” — SATURDAY REVIEW.
