This voluminous and elaborate work, of which only 50 copies were printed, is a strong and indubitable proof of the translator's extraordinary industry and very great abilities. He persevered in executing it in opposition to a numerous train of unexampled difficulties, and which would have entirely subdued a less resolute spirit. The philosophic reader is indebted for the publication of this magnificent work to the munificence of Wm. Meredith, Esq., an ardent admirer of the philosophy of Plato and Aristotle, and who patronized the labours of Mr. Taylor with a liberality unparalleled since the days of the Medici. In the Organon, or Logical Treatises (a volume of 844 pages) Mr. Taylor has given copious extracts from the Commentary of Ammonius Hermeas on the Treatise entitled “de Interpretatione," and also from Simplicius on the Categories. His elucidations from the Commentary of Simplicius on the Physics are still more copious, and contain, in addition to much other valuable matter, extracts from the lost writings of Parmenides, Melissus, Eunpedocles, Democritus, Anaxagoras, &c. which Simplicius says were very rare even in his time. In the books on the Heavens, and on the Soul, the reader will find the substance of the Commentaries of Simplicius on these Treatises. In the treatises likewise on Meteors and on Sense and Phantasy, he will find the Scholia of Olympiodorus on the former, and Priscianus on the latter, both of which are replete with peculiarly important information. The notes on the Metaphysics contain nearly the whole of the Commentaries of Syrianus that are extant, and are a most able and satisfactory defence of the Platonic doctrine of Ideas, against the apparcut opposition of Aristotle.

The Literary Gazette, January 7, after quoting from the above, adds: “Mr. Shaw made an important present to his countrymen and to the students of philology, when he completed his publication of the same sort. Mr. Arm. strong's is still more acceptable, because it is fuller, more satisfactory, more illustrative, and more comprehensive. The author has prefixed a grammar, which is very ably and neatly drawn up. To conclude, this quarto is as moderate in price as it is valuable in contents; and the work is a ‘monumentum perennius aere, of which not only every Scot, but every scholar and philologist throughout Europe, should avail himself."
