E.H. Barker (ed.) : Cicero's Catilinian Orations

Elizabeth Barrett to Hugh Stuart Boyd, 2 February 1829, thanking him for forwarding parcel containing E. H. Barker's edition of Cicero's Catilinian Orations: 'I was much interested by the extracts from Schottus's dissertation. I was surprised that Tacitus's treatise should be printed without notes [...] I was also surprised [...] to find Mr Barker's notes in English, while the notes of Ernesti & Ernestus are left in Latin. Surely some uniformity should have been preserved: either the Latin notes should have been rendered into English, or the English notes into Latin. These remarks are for [italics]you[end italics]. You need not take the trouble of repeating, to Mr Barker, anything more than my thanks.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Elizabeth Barrett      Print: Book
