Excerpt from Thucydides Histories: Book III There is to be sure no manuscript of Thucydides of such para mount importance as the Laurentian manuscript of Sophocles, and it is true that all the existing manuscripts show traces either of carelessness or, what is worse, of conscious alteration; but the faults of one manuscript can frequently be corrected by the help of others, and the errors are mostly of a definite and recurring nature, and do not affect the writer's meaning to any appreciable degree. How dangerous it is to rewrite an ancient author has recently been exemplified by the discovery at Oxyrhynchus of a papyrus fragment containing a small portion of Book IV, a book which has been treated in a very drastic manner by a distinguished editor, who is of opinion that the text of Thucydides has suffered much from the insertion of adscripts' or notes of commentators. The fragment, which is ascribed to the first century, is far from confirming this hypothesis. One fin is omitted to the great improvement of the syntax and sense (and that single words such as 8n, of, ms, can easily fall out or be inserted had been already suspected), but otherwise the text agrees in the main with the text of the existing manuscripts. The difficulties of Thucydides are therefore due to other causes than the ignorance or carelessness of his copyists. They are due in part to the nature of the man himself, in part to the conditions under which he wrote. Nor must it be too hastily assumed that the irregularities and solecisms which are found in the pages of Thucydides occur in no other Greek writer. They are to be found in all Greek writers, only in a less degree. That 'change of intention, ' of which so much is said in this commentary, could be largely exemplified from both poets and prose writers. Its frequency in Thucydides is due, in part, to the intellectual ardour and impatience of the writer. Thoughts crowd upon him too quickly; semper z'mtat sz'bz'. He begins a sentence with a plan in his mind which is upset by the intrusion of a new idea and, at the end, he is content if the thought is clear, and is not too much concerned about the grammatical correctness of his sentence. The same tendency may be seen in the writings of St. Paul and in the speeches of Oliver Cromwell, and with them it is partly due to the same cause.

The Oxford History of the Irish Book is a major new series that charts the development of the book in Ireland from its origins within an early medieval manuscript culture to its current incarnation alongside the rise of digital media in the twenty-first century. Volume III: The Irish Book in English, 1550-1800 contains a series of groundbreaking essays that seek to explain the fortunes of printed word from the early Renaissance to the end of the eighteenth century. The essays in section one explain the development of print culture in the period, from its first incarnation in the small area of the English Pale around Dublin, dominated by the interests of the English authorities, to the more widespread dispersal of the printing press at the close of the eighteenth century, when provincial presses developed their own character and style either alongside or as a challenge to the dominant intellectual culture. Section two explains the crucial developments in the structure and technical innovation of the print trade; the role played by private and public collections of books; and the evidence of changing reading practices throughout the period. The third and longest section explores the impact of the rise of print. Essays examine the effect that the printed book had on religious and political life in Ireland, providing a case study of the impact of the French Revolution on pamphlets and propaganda in Ireland; the transformations illustrated in the history of historical writing, as well as in literature and the theatre, through the publication of play texts for a wide audience. Others explore the impact that print had on the history of science and the production of foreign language books. The volume concludes with an authoritative bibliographical essay outlining the sources that exist for the study of the book in early modern Ireland. This is an authoritative volume with essays by key scholars that will be the standard guide for many years to come.

Not since the Second Great War have the Xenonites and the Vorians faced such peril as the day they allied above the earth. In fact, it was remembrance of that second war which brought them here with both fury and terror. Yet, far more happened during those years than the Xenonites realized. Therefore, we at Yzarc Industries have prepared an account of these momentous events in this third of seven histories. In this book, you will meet the characters who really mattered in ages past, including: An adventurous non-princess on the run from her suitor. A Sheek Wanderer with no hope of reaching the End of the Galaxy. A mad scientist with a penchant for Siderwort cheese. An aspiring author searching the swamp for dragons. And a long-lost Ciri who all are counting on to save the day. This is the third novel in the History of a Galaxy Series.
