plan was in each successive edition to make the Lexicon com-

until it should become a full Thesaurus of the Greek language.
The work has been committed to C. F. Rost, who is expected to
carry out the plan in his VoUsiandiges Worterbuch der Classi-

5. In writing Greek, the beginner needs the help of some
Book of Exercises. The following may be named.

Hunti7igford's Greek Exercises. — Neibon's. — Falpy's, by
Cairns. N. York, li3\.— Dunbar's —Fish's.— John Kenrick,

of K C. F. Rost & E. F. Wiistemann.—Anthwi's.—E. A. So-
fhodes, Gk. Exercises and Key.

6. In order to a thorough and successful pursuit of classical
literature, it is indispensable to attend considerably to the sub-
jects of Antiquities, Mythology, and Archasotogy in general. On
topics pertaining to the Archeology of Literature and Art, we
refer to the sections in Pail Fourth of this Manual ; on other
topics of Antiquities and Mythology, to the sections of Parts
Second and Third.

7. An important class of helps is composed of such as illus-
trate the subjects of Chronology, Geography, History, and Bio-

(a) Classical Dictionaries. This phrase designates works
which include more or less fully all the subjects just named;
with an alphabetical arrangement.

8. Benefit as well as pleasure may be derived from works
giving philosophical reflections, or elegant and popular views, or
leclures, on subjects embraced in classical study. We put here
the following. /

9. Among the very important aids in this study, are those
rvhich may be called Histories of Greek Literature, or Introduc-
tions to the History of Greek Literature, giving comprehensive
notices of the Greek authors, their different works, and the vari-
ous eaitions, translations, commentaries, &c. The design of the
metch of Greek Literature given in the present work, is to furnish
the scholar witli a help of this kind. But be will wish to be
reierred to others.

authors; but is valuable as presenting the characteristics of dif-
ferent periods and departments of literature, with the general
causes and particular development ; giving select references to
passages in the classic authors; also to modern writers.

in his last edition of Lempriere's Classical Dictionary (1840),
which the student may consult on the Greek and Latin authors
with great advantage.— There is a German translation : F. J.
Schwarze and Mar. Pinder, Geschichte der Griech. Literatur von
F. Scholl,— mit Berichtigungen und Zusitzen, &c. Berl. 1828-31.
3 vols. 8. This is much more valuable than the original, being
made under the supervision of Scholl, at Berlin, and containing
additions by himself and the translators. It is the most satitfae-
tory work of the kind.

§ 8*. We shall now proceed to the history of Greek literature. The method
pursued will be, to treat of the principal authors, classing them under the de-
partments in which they were chiefly eminent, and ranging them in chronolo-
gical order. Before noticing the authors, in any department individually, a
general view of the character and progress of that department will be given.
In order to secure greater distinctness of conception, the whole extent of time
included will first be divided into a few periods, which will be regarded in the
general view of each department.

It will be most convenient to adopt the division civen in SchoU's History of Greek Literature,
which \vori« is the principal source from which the translator has drawn in the additions made
to Eschenburg in this part of the Manual.
