The Correspondence of Tullius Cicero, Vol. 3: Arranged According to Its Chronological Order; With a Revision of the Text, a Commentary, and Introductory Essays (Classic Reprint) by Robert Yelverton Tyrrell (Paperback / softback, 2016)
Excerpt from The Correspondence of Tullius Cicero, Vol. 3: Arranged According to Its Chrological Order; With a Revision of the Text, a Commentary, and Introductory Essays The Preface to the Second Volume of Cicero's Correspondence anunced that this and the other volumes would appear as the joint work of Mr. Purser and myself. It also expressed a hope that the third volume should succeed the second after a much shorter interval than that which elapsed between the publication of the first two. We have succeeded in realising this anticipation, and we hope to finish the whole work in two more volumes in the course of the next three or four years. We shall be satisfied if we succeed in presenting our readers with a text based on the best foundations w available for criticism, and in adequately explaining that text. That part of our duty will demand frequent comment on the latinity of this most interesting body of literature; but our comments must be mainly in the interests of interpretation, and we must refrain from those minute analyses of style and idiom which make some recent editions of parts of Cicero's works so interesting and so instructive, but which our design would put out at our power, even if we felt ourselves competent to undertake such delicate speculations. Our historical and archaeological comments also must be strictly subsidiary to explanation. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
