ADVERTISEMENT.

 

 

This volume of the Series was to have been undertaken by the late Mr Conington. None can be more sensible than the present writer of the loss which all readers have sustained in the substitution rendered necessary by his lamented death.

The Editor begs to acknowledge the courteous permission of Mr Conington's representatives and publishers to make full extracts from his admirable version of the Æneid.

 


This work was published before January 1, 1924, and is in the public domain worldwide because the author died at least 100 years ago.
