Excerpt

On his sixtieth birthday ten years ago, Kemp Malone's colleagues and former students presented him with Philologica: The Malone Anniversary Studies, containing a number of papers which they contributed. In the introduction the editors, Thomas A. Kirby and Henry Bosley Woolf, gracefully expressed the esteem which all of us have for Malone as a scholar and our warm regard for him as a friend -- sentiments which the passing decade has further deepened.

On the present occasion we wished to honor Malone again, but this time we felt the festschrift should consist of his own brilliant papers. The selection which he made at our request is a happy one, for though it fails to reflect the wide range of his publications (listed in Philologica and supplemented in the present volume) it brings together a number of related papers -- some of them not readily accessible -- representing two of his main scholarly interests.

As editors we have the pleasant duty of acknowledging permission to reprint these papers, of thanking the many friends and colleagues of Malone listed in the Tabula Gratulatoria who have made it possible to publish the volume, and -- pleasantest of all -- of wishing Kemp Malone hearty and heartfelt greetings on his seventieth birthday, March 14, 1959.
