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 in both Latin and German, including Haupt's Quaestiones Catullianae (1837). Volume 2 (1876) contains the Latin text of forty-two lectures delivered by Haupt twice a year at the University of Berlin between 1854 and 1874. Volume 3 (1876) originally appeared in two parts, which are reissued here together. This collection will be of value to researchers interested in the history of classical scholarship, particularly its German practitioners.
