Guizots Essay upon the Life, Writings, and Age of Menander, belongs to that order of studies of classical antiquity in which Germany and France abound, but which are in little esteem at our own Universities. To this department the contributions of English scholars are few in number and inconsiderable in value. They have generally preferred the practical but somewhat dreary paths of pure philology, and left to foreigners the more attractive regions of biography and general criticism. Our periodical Journals occasionally present the reader with some excellent essays on ancient authors- but such lively and learned treatises as M. Guizots are seldom, if ever, published under the auspices of the Pitt or the Clarendon press.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
