A prolific philologist of both the German and classical languages, Moriz Haupt (1808-74) enjoyed a successful academic career at the universities of Leipzig and Berlin. As well as founding the Zeitschrift fur deutsches Altertum, which is still published, he was a painstaking yet somewhat bold editor of many classical texts. In the years immediately following his death, his shorter works were gathered together in this three-volume collection, edited by fellow philologist Ulrich von Wilamowitz-Moellendorff (1848-1931). Volume 1 (1875) contains essays by Haupt in both Latin and German on a variety of classical subjects. Included here are his Quaestiones Catullianae (1837), an analysis of a fragment of a Pindaric dithyramb, and a commentary on the bucolic poems of Calpurnius and Nemesianus. This work remains of value to researchers interested in the history of classical scholarship, particularly the significant contributions made by German scholars in the nineteenth century.
