As this book is designed for a kind of introduction to fabulous history, the notes give a more full account of the subjects connected with the matter immediately under consideration, than might otherwise seem expedient. And this is the more necessary from the circumstance, that boys are not usually intrusted with a Classical Dictionary at so early an age as this book will probably be given to them. For this reason very little reference has been made to Lempriere.

The Questions are designed to direct the student's attention to the subjects of the notes, as well as to those of the text; for a knowledge of the characters here introduced will greatly facilitate a proper understanding of all subsequent studies in Latin and Greek. The text is Burmann's. The selection from the Metamorphoses is the same with that published in England by Mr. Bradley, with some slight expurgation. The remaining portion was selected and expurgated for the occasion.

In preparing the notes, the editions of Burmann, Schrevelius, Minellius, Banier, and the Delphin edition, have been consulted ; and the notes of Mr. Bradley have been used, wherever they conformed to the plan of this work.

B. A. GOULD. Boston, April, 1827.
