Book Type: Paperback

Description:

Paperback. 536 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 1.3in.CLASSICAL DICTIONARY BIOGRAPHY, MYTHOLOGY, AND GEOGRAPHY BASED ON THE LARGER DICTIONARIES BY WILLIAM SMITH. The great progress which classical studies have made in Europe, md more especially in Germany during the present century, has superseded most of the Works usually employed in the elucidation of the Greek and Roman writers. It had long been felt by our best scholars and teachers that something better was required than we yet possessed in the English language for illustrating the Antiquities, Literature, Mythology, and Geography of the Ancient Writers, and for enabling a diligent studart, to rcad them in the niost profitable manner. It was with a view of suppIying this acknowledged want that the series of Classical Dictionaries was undertaken and the veryfavourable manner in which these Works have been received by the Scholars and Teachers of this country demands from the Editor his most grateful acknowledgments. The approbation with which he has been favoured has encouraged him to proceed in the design which he had formed from the beginning of preparing a series of works which might be useful not only to the scholar and the more advanced student, but also to those who were entering on their classical studies. The Dictionaries of Greek and Roman Antiquities, of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology, and of Greek and Roman Geography, are intended to meet the wants of the more advanced scholar but these works are on too extended a scale, and enter too much into details, to be suitable for the use of junior students. Originally published in 1858. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are now republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781443719568
