JUST PUBLISHED,

GEOGRAPHIA CLASSICA:

A SKETCH OF

ANTIENT GEOGRAPHY,

FOR THE USE OF SCHOOLS. IN ONE VOLUME, OCTAVO.

BY SAMUEL BUTLER, D. D.

Author of an Atlas to Antient Geography.



Extract of a Letter from Professor Stuart of Andover.

" I have used Butler's Atlas Classica for twelve or fourteen years, and prefer it on the
score of convenience and correctness to any atlas within the compass of my knowledge. It
is evidently a work of mucii care and taste, and most happily adapted to classical readers,
and indeed all others who consult the history of past ages. I have long- cherished a
strong dtsire to see the work brought forward in this country, and I am exceedingly gra-
tified that you have carried through this undertaking. The beautiful manner in which
the specimen is executed that you have sent me does great credit to engravers and pub-
lishers. It cannot be that our schools and colleges will fail to adopt this work, and bring
it into very general circulation. I know of none which in all respects would supply its
place."

"The abriged but classical and excellent work of Butler, on Antient Geography,
which you are printing as an accompaniment to the maps, I consider one of the most at-
tractive works of the kind, especially for young persons studying the classics, that has
come under my notice. I wish you the most ample success in these highly useful pubU-
cations."



INTRODUCTION TO THE STUDY

OF THE

GREEK CLASSIC POETS,

FOK THE USE OF YOUNG PERSONS AT SCHOOL OR COLLEGE.

BY HENRY NELSON COLERIDGE.

Contents.— General Introduction ; Homeric Questions ; Life of Homer ; Iliad ; Odyssey ; Margites ;
Batraeliomyomachia ; Hyimis ; Hesiod.



"We have been highly pleased with this little volume. This work supplies a want
which we. have often painfully felt, and affords a manual which we should gladly see
placed in the hands of every embryo vmder-graduate. We look forward to the next por-
tion of this work with very eager and impatient expectation." — British Critic.

"Mr. Coleridge's work not only deserves the praise of clear, eloquent, and scholar-
like exposition of the preliminary matter, which is necessary in order to understand and
enter into the character of the great poet of antiquity ; but it has likewise the more rare
merit of being admirably adapted for its acknowledged purpose. It is written in that
fresh and ardent spirit, which to the congenial mind of youth, will convey instruction in
the most effective manner, by awakening the desire of it; and by enlisting the lively and
buoyant feelings in the cause of useful and improving study; while by its pregnant bre-
vity, it is more likely to stimulate than to supersede more profound and extensive re-
search. If •then, as it is avowedly intended for the use of the younger readers of Homer,
and, as it is impossible not to discover, with a more particular view to the great school to
which the author owes his education, we shall be much mistaken if it does not become as
popular as it will be useful in that celebrated establishment." — Quarterly Beview.

" We sincerely hope that Mr. Coleridge will favour us witli a continuation of this work,
which he promises." — Gent. Magazine.

"The author of this elegant volume has collected a vast mass of valuable information.
To the higher classes of the public schools, and young- men of universities, this volume
will be especially valuable; as it will afford an agreeable relief of light reading to more
grave studies, at once instructive and entertaining." — Wesley an Mdh. Magazine.
