The treatment of the orations rhetorically and logically has been very much extended, with the hope of making the book more useful, not only for the study of Latin, but also for the study of rhetorical composition generally. The very numerous illustrations have not been inserted merely to make a picture-book, but to give the pupil some sense of the reality of the orations as a part of history. Teachers and others who take a more intelligent interest in these ancient memorials, will find much explanatory and critical comment in the numbered list of illustrations. A very large increase of introductory matter has seemed desirable in view of the growing interest in the study of the history of civilization.

The plan of the Roman Forum has been taken from the admirable plan in Middleton's Remains of Ancient Rome (Black, London, 1892), without alteration, except that some details have been omitted to make it simpler for young students.

As in the previous edition, the text of BAITER and KAYSER has been strictly followed, as a recent textus receptus, even where the revisers would personally prefer a different reading. They have, however, rejected the doubled i in the genitive of the second declension, which must have been unknown to Cicero.

It is hoped that the new and improved features will commend themselves to teachers and tend to improve Latin scholarship in this country.
