Doles variorum edition (1896), J.
Hartman, 1905); with variorum notes, by J.
8vo, Paris, 1854), well printed and with a useful variorum commentary, lacks bibliographical information and is disfigured by hideous engravings.
In appearance and careful editing it leaves nothing to desire, containing the entire works, a lexicon, full bibliographical information, and an album of illustrations of the poet's places of residence, his arms, some title-pages of his plays, facsimiles of his writings, &c. Nothing is wanting but variorum comments, which Lefevre's edition supplies.
The work was discovered by Poggio, who copied the original manuscript Editio princeps (books 14-26) by Sabinus, 1474; completed by Accursius, 1533; with variorum notes, by Wagner-Erfurdt, 1808; latest edition of text, Gardthausen, 1874-1815.
Ball's The Variorum Apocrypha will be found specially useful by those who cannot conveniently consult the Greek.
