PREFACE.

The Second Edition of this volume was published just twenty years ago, and since that time many important works bearing on Cicero's Epistles have been issued. Chief among these have been the stately critical edition of the Epistulae ad Familiares by L. Mendelssohn (1893); Lehmann’s De Ciceronis Epistulis ad Atticum recensendis et emendandis (1892); the critical edition of the whole Correspondence by C. F. W. Müller, a work of great learning (1896–1898); Lehmann's edition (1892) of Hofmann's Ausgewählte Briefe, lately revised by Sternkopf (1898), which contains full critical notes (as far as the selected letters are concerned) of the various manuscripts of the class (see Introduction, pp. 107–112)*; and 0. E. Schmidt's Der Briefwechsel Ciceros von seinem Prokonsulat in Cilicien bis zu Caesars Ermordung (1893). We trust that we may soon have from this distinguished scholar another volume of the same kind, dealing with the earlier period

Whatever statements we have made as to the readings of these manuscripts are based on what has been told us by Lehmann in the two above-named works of that scholar.
