 =The Nicomachean Ethics of Aristotle.= Edited, with an Introduction and
   Notes, by JOHN BURNET, M.A., Professor of Greek at St. Andrews. Demy
   8vo, 15s. net.

This edition contains parallel passages from the Eudemian Ethics,
printed under the text, and there is a full commentary, the main object
of which is to interpret difficulties in the light of Aristotle’s own
rules.

“This is both a scholarly and an original contribution to the study of
the ancient Greek language and the ancient Greek philosophy. It is an
original book in the sense of contributing to the study of the subject,
not only mere learning and skill in summing up and expounding the
results of the researches of prior scholars, but also fresh and
illuminative ideas of the editor’s own. It is an edition which reflects
every credit upon its author’s learning and critical acumen, and which
cannot but prove heartily welcome to all classes of Greek
scholars.”—_Scotsman._

 =A Constitutional and Political History of Rome.= By T. M. TAYLOR,
   M.A., Fellow of Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, Senior
   Chancellor’s Medallist for Classics, Porson University Scholar, etc.
   etc. Crown 8vo, 7s. 6d.

An account of the origin and growth of the Roman institutions, and a
discussion of the various political movements in Rome from the earliest
times to the death of Augustus.

“We fully recognise the value of this carefully written work, and
admire especially the fairness and sobriety of the author’s judgment,
and the human interest with which he has inspired a subject which in
some hands becomes a mere series of cold abstractions. It is a work
that will be stimulating to the student of Roman history.”—_Athenæum._


 =A Short History of Rome.= By J. WELLS, M.A., Fellow and Tutor of
   Wadham College, Oxford. With 3 Maps. Second Edition. Crown 8vo, 3s.
   6d.

“An original work, written on an original plan and with uncommon
freshness and vigour.”—_Speaker._

“The schoolmasters who have felt the want of a fifth-form handbook of
Roman history may congratulate themselves on persuading Mr. Wells to
respond to it. His book is excellently planned and executed. Broken up
into short paragraphs, with headings to arrest the attention, his
manual does equal justice to the personal and the constitutional
aspects of the story. Special credit is due to an author who, in the
compilation of an elementary work of this kind, faces the difficulties
of his subject with conscientious skill, neither ignoring them nor
eluding them with a loose phrase, but striving to explain them in the
simplest and briefest statements.”—_Journal of Education._

   Illustrations. Demy 8vo, 7s. 6d.

Brave’ are intended to suit the real tastes of boys, and will suit the
taste of the great majority.”—_Spectator._

   1s. 6d.

“There are few people better qualified to write on Citizenship than Mr.
Malden, who of course gives the historical development of all our
rights and privileges. It is an eminently readable little book—not the
less so because its author fearlessly states his personal convictions
on most matters.”—_Educational Review._
