PREFATORY NOTE TO THE SECOND
Munro's book on Catullus, which contains some of his finest and most characteristic work, was first published in 1878. The edition was soon exhausted, so that many who wished to possess a copy have been unable to get it except after long delay and at a high price. It was therefore suggested to the publishers that the book should be reprinted. This they at once agreed to do; and the present edition is the result.
In this second edition three short papers, printed by Munro in the Journal of Philology after the publication of his book, have been added. A few misprints have been corrected, and a few additional illustrations have been taken from a copy in which they were entered by Munro himself. Lastly, in one or two places, a reference has been given to later discussions of points dealt with by Munro. Otherwise the two editions are identical.
