In this revision of Smith's Latin Selections every passage has been compared with the corresponding text of a standard critical edition. To enumerate the works made use of would require more space than is available. The extent of the revision may be judged from the fact that in the four hundred pages of Latin in the original volume, if no account be made of punctuation, over twelve hundred changes have been made; if punctuation be included, over twenty-five hundred. Some unimportant variations in orthography have been allowed to stand.
A few foot-notes giving references on the early Latin have been added.
The thirty-seven pages of new selections contain extracts from the more important additional authors down to the sixth century. It is hoped that they will prove to be interesting as well as useful.
