This Selection follows strictly the text of Baiter and Kayser as a new textus receptus, even when the editors would personally prefer a different reading. They have, however, rejected the double in the genitive of the second declension, which must have been unknown to Cicero. The orations for Roscius and for Sestius are considerably abridged, on account of their length and some special difficulties. They are inserted for their exceptional importance in reference to the orators career, and they are especially recommended to students for that reason. Teachers will find great advantage in using such parts as are not necessary in the regular school course, as exercises in reading at sight, a practice which cannot be too highly recommended, and for which the shorter selections are more particularly intended.
