Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A valuable resource for both graduate student and scholar....Every student of ancient literature needs to own and read this book."--Classical Bulletin

"A thorough, lively and up-to-date assessment of a complex historical process; an excellent introduction."--Charles Witke, University of Michigan

Praise for the First Edition: "This is an excellent book; its authors have fulfilled with striking success their aim to produce 'a simple introduction for beginners to the processes by which Greek and Latin literature have been preserved.' They have dealt with the essentials of this vast subject, and with the rudiments of textual criticism, in five very readable chapters, and their book deserves to be lastingly popular with...undergraduates."--Journal of Hellenic Studies

"Indispensable for classical students who have not read the previous edition, and recommended for those who want recent information on an essential subject."--The Classical World

"The many virtues of this book, which has become a classic of its kind, have been widely recognized and justly praised."--Bryn Mawr Classical Review
