Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1974. 2nd revised and enlarged ed. 275,XVIp. ills. Paperback. 'This is an excellent book; its authors have fulfilled with striking success their aim to produce 'a simple introduction for beginners to the process by which Greek and Latin literature have been preserved.' They have dealt with all the essentials of this vast subject, and with the rudiments of textural criticis, in five very readable chapters, and their book deserves to be lastingly popular (...).' (P.E. EASTERLING in The Journal of Hellenic Studies). The second edition has a section with notes for the advanced students, and there is an additional chapter on some aspects of scholarship since the Renaissance. From the library of Prof. Carl Deroux.
