As to the version, con. sidering the all but insuperable difficulties with which the translator has had to content, in a writer said by some great scholars to be untranslateable, we can with truth say, that ar has errented his task with fidelity, taste, and judgment; Upon the whole we can pronounce the work to be quite indispensable to all who rould hope to understand the text of the greatest of historians, but most obscure of writers."--Gentleman's Magazine.

"We feel confident that no reader of Thucydides will fail to purchase an edition there, be their scholarship what it may, they cannot rise from its perusal silhout having learni much that they did not knot before, and which they cannot obtain elsewhere..., We will not do the future of colleges, and masters of public schools the injustice to believe, that thry are so regardless of their own reputation and their pupils'improrement, as not to adopt the only edition of Thucydides, which this or any other country has produced, really suited for the instruction of young persons."- Gentleman's Magazine.
