Excerpt from Trinummus: With Notes Critical and Exegetical
The present edition of the Trinummus would not perhaps have appeared so soon but for the publication of Ritschl's new edition. It is true that, some three years ago, I had agreed to prepare for Messrs Deighton, Bell& ... Co. A complete edition of Plautus with English notes: but it was understood that so great a work as this naturally required much time and many preparations, though I might have previously collected much material bearing both upon the criticism and explanation of my author. I commenced with the Trinummus and indeed nearly finished a first sketch of the commentary, when I heard that Professor Ritschl was about to re-edit his Plautus. I now thought it advisable to wait until the appearance of his new edition, and after that timei again took up my work. Such as it is, and though I am well aware that it falls short of what it might be and ought to be, and what I myself should wish it to be, I now present it to my English friends.
