Makers of Europe: Being the James Henry Morgan Lectures in Dickinson College for 1930

Excerpt

The general design of this short course of lectures is explained at the outset of the first; my duty here is to render thanks to some friendly authorities who have allowed me, in parts of these lectures, to make use again of material which they have already published wholly or in part. In the lecture on Caesar, Messrs. Benn Bros. have kindly allowed me to embody a page or two from the chapter on Caesar in the booklet on Great Writers of Rome which I recently contributed to a series which they have published. I have to thank further my friend Dr. Henry Guppy for kindly allowing me, in the lectures on Cicero and Horace, to avail myself of matter which has al- ready appeared in the John Rylands' Library Bulletin, though in both cases with considerable modifications. The lecture on Vergil appeared in a somewhat different form in the Proceedings of the Classical Association in 1928, and was published separately as a pamphlet by the University Press of Manchester, which has generously allowed me to make free use of it here. For the index I am indebted to the skilled and experienced hand of my wife, Mrs. Margaret Conway, M.A.; and the promptness with which the lectures were prepared for the press is due to the speed and care of my secretary, Miss Rhoda C. Kitts. And to the very able reader of the Harvard University Press I render again my hearty thanks.

I hope I may also be allowed to record my gratitude to Dr. Mervin Filler, President of Dickinson College, for the great kindness which he showed me in all the details bearing on the delivery of the lectures; and my pleasure that one of them could be honoured by the presence of the revered teacher and scholar whose name they bear.
