PREFATORY NOTE.

The following are the principal sources for an estimate of Bentley's life and work:

1. Life of Bentley, by J. H. Monk, 4to, London, 1830: 2nd ed., 2 vols. 8vo, 1833.—2. Bentley's Correspondence, ed. C. Wordsworth, 2 vols., Lond. 1842.-3. Bentley's Works, ed. Alex. Dyce, 1836-38. Vols. I. and II.—Dissertation on Letters of Phalaris, (1) as published in 1699, (2) as originally printed in Wotton's Reflections, 1697. Epistola ad Ioannem Millium. Vol. III. – Boyle Lectures, with Newton's Letters : Sermons: Remarks upon a late Discourse of Freethinking: Proposals for an edition of the New Testament: Answer to the Remarks of Conyers Middleton.-4. Bentley's Fragments of Callimachus, in the edition of Graevius, Utrecht, 1697, reprinted in Blomfield's ed., London, 1815.-5. Emendations on Menander and Philemon (1710), reprinted, Cambridge, 1713.–6. Horace, Camb. 1711, 2nd ed., Amsterdam, 1713.—7. Terence, Cambridge, 1726, 2nd ed., Amsterdam, 1728. – 8. Milton's Paradise Lost, London, 1732. —9. Manilius, London, 1739.

Notes by Bentley appeared during his lifetime in the books of other scholars. Since his death, many more have been published from his MSS. These, while varying much in fulness and value, cannot be overlooked in a survey of the field which his studies covered. The subjoined list comprises the greater part of them :

On Cicero's Tusculan Disputations, in Gaisford's ed., Oxford, 1805. -Hephæstion, in Gaisford's ed., 1810. — Lucretius, in Oxford ed.,
