A Smaller Classical Dictionary free pdf Excerpt from A Smaller Classical Dictionary: Edited by E. H. Blakeney This little Classical Dictionary is, in the main, a reprint of Dr. Smith's Dictionary published many years ago. But a considerable amount of revision has been made- few of the longer articles appear exactly in the form in which they originally appeared- and a great deal of new matter has been introduced in order to bring the work up to date, as far as was consistent with the Publishers' plan of including in Everyman's Library a short and concise companion to the classics. Armed with this book, the average reader will have little difficulty in understanding classical allusions as they appear, not only in standard English writers, but also, in the periodical literature of our time. The references which I have added to the more important articles will enable any one who is anxious to follow up a clue to do so with ease and rapidity. Indeed, these references are one of the main features of the book. Much labour has been expended in making them really serviceable- but I do not grudge the time expended, if my work tends in any degree to lighten the labours of others. It would have been easy to extend these references and bibliographical notes indefinitely- but I have preferred to keep them within strictly reasonable limits- and I have made a point of referring my readers to English books, or to such works of foreign writers as have appeared in an English dress. Not only have articles in the original edition of this Dictionary been amplified (and, where necessary, curtailed), but some fresh articles have been supplied. I need not specify all these- enough to call attention to such fresh matter as the notes on Aspendus, Phoenicia, Sardanapalus, Septuagint, Stoics, Syria, Vulgate, all of which seem to me desirable in the interests of completeness. The Lists and Supplementary matter arc quite new, and will prove handy for reference purposes. The Publishers have been very generous in their inclusion in this Dictionary of a goodly number of half-tone blocks. These should prove of the utmost help to readers. It is little use writing notes on the characteristics of the greater sculptors of Greece, for example, unless one can point the student to some really adequate reproduction of their masterpieces.
