ADVERTISEMENT.

Dr. Dübner's name will vouch for the accuracy of his Notes, which, though short, will be found sufficient for the pupil. They have been translated for this edition by the Rev. A. R. Webster, Vicar of Bradninch. The Text is Wagner's, with a few slight variations : it was printed off before Dr. Dübner's edition had reached me.

P. VIRGILII MARONIS

Æ N EIDOS

LIBER PRIMUS.

Ille ego, qui quondam gracili modulatus avena
Carmen, et, egressus silvis, vicina coegi,
Ut quamvis avido parerent arva colono,
Gratum opus agricolis, at nunc horrentia Martis

ARMA virum que cano, Trojæ qui primus ab oris
Italiam, fato profugus, Laviniaque venit
Litora, multum ille et terris jactatus et alto
Vi superûm, sævæ memorem Junonis ob iram,
Multa quoque et bello passus, dum conderet urbem, 5
Inferretque deos Latio, genus unde Latinum
Albanique patres atque altæ monia Romæ.

Musa, mihi caussas memora, quo numine læso,
Quidve dolens, regina deûm tot volvere casus
Insignem pietate virum, tot adire labores

'10 Impulerit. Tantæne animis cælestibus iræ ?

Urbs antiqua fuit,—Tyrii tenuere coloni,
Carthago, Italiam contra Tiberinaque longe
Ostia, dives opum studiisque asperrima belli;
Quam Juno fertur terris magis omnibus unam
Posthabita coluisse Samo; hic illius arma,
Hic currus fuit ; hoc regnum dea gentibus esse,
Si qua fata sinant, jam tum tenditque fovetque.
Progeniem sed enim Trojano a sanguine duci
Audierat, Tyrias olim quæ verteret arces ;
Hinc populum late regem belloque superbum
