Foremost are the great names of John Frederick Gronov and John Nicholas Madvig- but around them clusters a brilliant array of scholars hardly inferior to these great chiefs, among whom Crevier, Drakenborch, Kreyssig, Bekker, Alschefski, Haupt, Hertz, and above all Weissenborn, cannot pass unmentioned.

The work of an editor is made both easier and more difficult by so many and such guides: easy indeed when stars of the first magnitude shine in conjunction, but. hard sometimes when they are opposed. There is, it is true, one in this list, whom a man might follow even with his eyes shut, and feel a sured that he would never be led far astray. The unrivalled sagacity with which the great Danish philologist scents out the true reading in a tangled maze of hopeless obscurity is one of the marvels of our later day.

It is hard to resist the fascination of such genius- yet, with due diffidence, I may say that in some cases I have been less certain that the words Madvig gives are those which Livy actually wrote, than that they are the best possible expression in Latin of the thought Livy wished to convey.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
