Excerpt

The approval which was given by scholars to our First Series published in 1921 has encouraged us to continue the work, and we hope that in the two series together we have given an account of most of the chief accessions to the Greek literature of our period which have been published up to the present time. The reasons for choosing this period are given in the Preface to the First Series. But as new accessions continue to be made, so fresh criticism continues to appear; and even while the book was passing through the Press, we observed instances of this (for the subject is living and growing), but it was too late to incorporate them.

We must apologize if we have trespassed too far into the period A. D.; if we have, it was to render the treatment of the subject more complete. We have also added in an Appendix an article on the recent accessions to the Hesiodic poems, in order to summarize the important work which has been done on them in England and in other countries.

As in the First Series, while we have exercised a general supervision of the articles, we have allowed each of our contributors to treat his subject in his own way, and hence slight repetition here and there was unavoidable. We have to express our thanks to them, and also to several other scholars; imprimis to Professor Hunt for his unfailing interest and assistance; next to Mr. A. D. Knox, Mr. E. Lobel, Mr. R. McKenzie . . .
