Excerpt from Thucydides, Vol. 3: Book III

This edition of the Third Book of Thucydides is based upon Steup's revision of Classen's edition, Berlin, 1892. Professor Steup's studies in Thucydides had long ago pointed to him as the rightful successor of the aged Classen, and even before the latter's death (August 31, 1891), he had issued the fourth edition of Book II.(1889).

The variations from the text of the Steup-Classen edition - which, with few exceptions, are restorations of the Ms. reading - are explained in the notes and referred to in the Index. The exegetical notes of the German edition have generally been closely followed, but a more independent attitude has been maintained than was the case in the editors edition of Book VII. As in that book, so in this, Stahl's edition and critical articles have proved of most assistance; but other editions also - those of Bloomfield, Arnold, Boehme, and especially that of Krüger - as well as Jowett's translation and notes, have been of great service, and helpful suggestions have been derived from many other sources. Except where matter might be regarded as common property, the editor's intention has been to acknowledge indebtedness, but this has not always been practicable. The recent appearance of Steup's revision has made it possible to bring citations of important Thucydidean literature more nearly up to date than might otherwise have been the case.
