Ciceronis Epistolcwwn Delectus: a Selection from Cicero's Letters, illus- trating

the Contemporary History of Rome. By E. St. John Parry, M.A. (Longmans.)—A hundred and eleven of Cicero's letters are contained in this book, all of them having some bearing on the public events of the life of their writer. Mr. Parry's idea is good, and he has executed it with such fullness of annotation that Cicero's Latin, the persons and the incidents of contemporary history, are at once made clear to the student. Young learners cannot have a better companion at their side while reading Mommsen or Merivale.
