PREFACE.

This book is a revised edition of a favourite volume, now out of print, Florilegium Poeticum, originally edited by the Rev. George Whittaker. The work, in its first edition, consisted of extracts from Ovid, Tibullus, Propertius, Martial, and Ausonius. In the present edition the extracts from the last three have been withdrawn, and replaced by additional ones from Ovid and Tibullus. The work, therefore, now consists entirely of passages from these two writers; and contains all the pieces to be found in the selections ordinarily used in schools, with large additional extracts, so that the total number of passages exceeds that of any similar work. The extracts from Tibullus are distinguished by his name, all the rest being from Ovid.

There are also appended English foot notes, which the original edition was without. It is hoped, therefore, that the volume will be thus made more useful as a class-book for translation.
