Description

The present work is designed mainly forS tudents at otu Universities and Public Schools, and for such as are preparing for the Indian Civil Service or other advanced Examinations. The author hopes, however, that it may also be acceptable to some of those who, without being professed scholars, are yet interested in the grand literature of Rome, or who wish to refresh their memory on a subject that perhaps engrossed their early attention, but which the many calls of advancing life have made it difficult to pursue. All who intend to undertake a thorough study of the subject will turn toT euffel sadmirable History, without which many chapters in th present work could not have attained completeness ;but the rig;d severity of that exhaustive treatise makes it fitter for a book oi reference for scholars than for general reading even among strdents.

The continual references toT euffel swork, excellently translated by Dr.
