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 3 (1876) originally appeared in two parts, which are reissued here together. Among the articles in German and Latin are a discussion of a fragment of the eulogy for the Ostrogoth king Theodahad and a talk given at the celebration of the Kaiser's birthday in 1871. This work remains of value to researchers interested in nineteenth-century philology, particularly the significant contributions made by its German practitioners.
