“Οτι μεν ούν και ετέροις υπέρ τούτων εσπούδασται, καλώς οίδα: εγώ δε εμαυτό ταύτα, όσα οιον τε ήν, αθροίσας, και περιβαλών αυτοίς την συνήθη λέξιν, κειμήλιον ουκ ασπούδαστον εκπονήσαι πεπίστευκα. . Ει δέ τω και άλλα φανείται ταύτα λυσιτελή, , χρήσθω αυτοίς· ότι δε ου φανείται, εάτω τω πατρί θάλπειν τε και περιέπειν ου γαρ πάντα πασι καλά, ουδέ άξια δοκεί σπουδάσαι πάσι πάντα.

Alian. DE NATURA ANIMALIUM, PRÆFAT. For the amusement of such as may be desirous of consulting the Cynegetical works cited in the preceding annotations on Arrian and the Appendix, a list of their respective titles and editions is subjoined.

The author does not pretend to enumerate all the known editions of each Cynegeticon, but only those of his own library. Where two or more of the same work are mentioned, the copy made use of is either pointed out by specification, or the name of the editor and place of publication are printed in italics. In cases of disputed text, different editions have been collated, and the most approved readings selected

Enrolled in the catalogue are a few treatises de re Venaticá which the present writer has never seen. They are admitted on the authority of earlier compilers, in whose bibliothecæ they appear : but their importance to the Onens «durà dúvea (Oppian. Cyneg. 1. 16.) is assumed rather than established. Remoteness of residence from public libraries must plead for the author's unavoidable ignorance. He could not certify by actual examination the admissibility of any book not on his own shelves. The works in question are distinguished by the prefixture of an asterisk.

A Bibliotheca Cynegetica upon the following plan was first attempted by Rittershusius in his Prolegomena to Oppian, imperfectly executed by Lallemant in his Bibliotheca Historica et Critica Thereuticographwn, and subsequently, but still far short of perfection, by Belin de Ballu in his prefatory matter to the poet of Anazarbus. The latter's catalogue professedly excludes all prosaic works, save those of the classic ages-departing from its rule in the solitary instance of Conrad Heresbach's Compendium. Of the English Cynegetica, Somerville's Chace is alone admitted, the doggrel of the Book of St. Alban's possessing insufficient poetical pretensions, perhaps, in the eyes of a foreigner, to place Dame Juliana Berners, or the

one sumtyme scole mayster of seynt Albons,” or whoever be the author of these antique canons, amongst those “ qui metricè hanc materiam persecuti sunt.” Proleg. in Oppian. p. xvi. Ed. 4to.

VII. Demetrius.

1. The Cynegeticus is contained in the third volume of this uncommon edition ; which the writer regrets not to have seen till his translation was printed off. Its principal attraction is the novel annexation of some Greek Scholia by the editor, ingenious and explanatory. Those of the Cynegeticus, in a few instances, gire a ditlerent interpretation of the text to what is given by the translator ; but these are not very important.

Demetrius of Constantinople, written about A.D. 1270. was first published by Aurifaber. Wittembergæ, MDXLV. The author's editions are those of Rigaltius in the Rei Accipitrariæ Scriptores. Lutetiæ. MDCXII, and of Johnson, attached to his Latin Poets of the Chace. Londini, MDCXCIX.

The latter part is noticed in the preface to Arrian's Cynegeticus under the name of Compendium Thereuticæ Universæ, a title given it by Rittershusius in his Oppianic Prolegomena. The author's quotations are principally from Conrad Gesner's Historia Quadrupedum ; but since the prefatory remarks have been sent to press, he has examined a copy of the original (Spiræ Nemetum ciɔ.19.xciv). As an Epitome of Xenophon and Oppian, the appendix has merit - containing brief notices of

many varieties of ancient and modern hounds, their style of hunting, quarry, &c. Part of the third book De Re Rusticâ treats of dogs connected with rural economy, the (Ecurus, Villaticus, &c.
