Title: Original edition -- CLASSICAL STUDIES. ESSAYS ON ANCIENT LITERATURE AND ART, With the Biography and Correspondence of Eminent Philologists
Description: Boston, Gould, Kendall, and Lincoln, 1849. 2nd Edition. 0 pp. Hardcover. xxi,413pp 8vo original embossed cloth. "Second Thousand". Spine a little faded, slight wear to headband, mild foxing, but a sound, clean, and attractive copy. Purchased from Ian Jackson's Catalogue 78 who commented: "apparently just a reissue of the original sheets [of 1843] with a cancel titlepage and half-title (the latter with extracts from the reviews). As W.M. Calder III remarks (typically giving the British no quarter), 'Required reading for the influence of German scholarship on the formative period of American philology. This was the generation that remembered clearly or even experienced English war atrocities and turned from England to Prussia' -- An Introductory Bibliography no.351. The work is largely a disconnected history of classical philology in Germany and the Netherlands, with 150 pages of scholarly correspondence by Ruhnken, Heyne, Voss, Wyttenbach, Bekker, Passow, Boettiger and Hermann, little (if any) of which has ever appeared elsewhere in English". Very Good.
