William L. Newman (1834-1923) published his reconstruction of the Greek text of Aristotle's Politics between 1887 and 1902. Divided into four volumes, it includes a detailed commentary, critical notes and essays. Newman's reconstructed text is based on the edition of Susemihl (1872) and his own fresh collations of a number of important Greek manuscripts. Newman's cautious text, always supported by extensive manuscript evidence, was widely regarded as an improvement on Bekker's more conjectural 1837 text. Newman's detailed commentary was highly praised and has been used for over a century by students of Politics. As a scholar and pedagogue, he had a significant impact on nineteenth-century classical studies. His four-volume edition of the Politics stands as a monument of Victorian scholarship and will continue to be read and studied by scholars and students of Aristotle.
