A HISTORY OF THE LATER ROMAN
EMPIRE FROM ARCADIUS TO IRENE (395 A.D.
to 800 A.D.). Two Vols. 8vo. CLASSICAL REVIEW.-"Mr. Bury's volumes are an important and valuable contribution to our knowledge of a period the history of which has been too much neglected by scholars."
GUARDIAN.--"Mr. Bury's great 'merit lies in his wide and bold grasp of æcumenical history. Nobody has better taken in the nature of that eternal question,' the first stages of which are to be found recorded in the opening chapters of Herodotus, and the latest (as yet) in the morning's news from Armenia or from Crete. There is no need for any one to teach Mr. Bury the root of the matter. Mr. Bury has thoroughly grasped the true substance and meaning of his vast subject."
SATURDAY REVIEW.-“Mr. Bury's volumes are the fruit of diligent and independent work amongst a mass of difficult materials, and will have to be reckoned with by all who follow in his steps. Moreover, Mr. Bury shows a commendable resolve not to accept traditional views as a way out of difficulties. He has taken a larger view than any previous writer of the lives and characters, the resources and dangers of the later Emperors. He has followed them into the details of their policy, and has not considered anything undeserving of his attention. Still more he has done his best to reproduce the life, the art, and the learning of Byzantium. Perhaps his chapters on the literature of the times and his estimates of the authorities whom he follows will have the most enduring influence on English scholars.”
A HISTORY OF GREECE FROM THE
EARLIEST TIMES TO THE DEATH OF ALEX-
ATHENAUM.—"In every way worthy of the author's reputation, learned yet lucid, scholarly yet not too much given to a descent into superfluous minutiæ. . . It would be hard to find a more useful book for the student who has grasped the outlines of the subject, and wishes to start on an inquiry into the sources from which the received narrative has been derived.
CLASSICAL REVIEW.-" It is difficult to speak too highly of this History as a whole. The greatest pains have been taken throughout to maintain the sense of proportion."
HISTORY OF GREECE FOR BEGINNERS.
GUARDIAN. .“ Reads pleasantly, and would serve admirably as a text-book for any but the higher forms."
MACMILLAN AND CO., LTD., LONDON.
THE ANCIENT GREEK HISTORIANS. (Har
vard Lectures.) Svo. 75. 6d, net.
OUTLOOK. .“ These eight admirable lectures are good examples of the work of the new academic spirit in England. They are a monument of learning and critical judgment, but they are totally unblemished by pedantry in any of its forms, gross or subtle. The mind of the lecturer moves with easy freedom in a world of bygone men and things, because that world is made alive and humanised by the constant play of imagination and the fully developed sense of the unity of all history. These printed lectures then are profoundly interesting as well as profoundly learned."
ATHENÆUM.-" The author's great learning is manifest notwithstanding the popular character of the lectures, and this, combined as it is with a felicity of expression which is all his own, makes the book very welcome.”
THE NEMEAN ODES OF PINDAR. Edited,
with Introduction and Commentary, by Professor J. B. BURY, Litt.D. 8vo. IOS. net.
ATHENÆUM. .-"Lovers of Pindar cannot be too grateful to Mr. Bury for the wealth of minute criticism, both philological and literary, which he has lavished upon his luxurious edition. . . . Every page evinces a genuine enthusiasm for his author, great ingenuity of exegesis, and lively poetic imagination."
THE ISTHMIAN ODES OF PINDAR. Edited,
with Introduction and Commentary, by Professor J. B. BURY, Litt.D. 8vo.
:-“We have not found one note that is not interesting nor one translation that is not poetic and forcible.”
SATURDAY REVIEW.-" It is marked throughout with scholarly acuteness, and is in every respect worthy of the author's high reputation."
THE LIFE OF ST. PATRICK AND HIS PLACE IN HISTORY. 8vo.
I 25. net.
ATHENÆUM.- -“A life of St. Patrick, in which careful and minute research has not quenched a bold and vivid imagination. ... In no book have we found more ingenuity in probing for historic truth amid a cloud of absurdities, and such weighing of evidences as the appendix offers seems to us a model of acuteness in conjectural criticism."
