1 Martin, J., T. Lucreti Cari De rerum nalura libri sex (Leipzig, 1963), xix.

2 Gordon, C. A., A Bibliography of Lucretius (London, 1962; Winchester, 1985), 67–8.

3 Titi Lucreti Cari De rerum natura libri sex (Oxford, 1947), i.50, iii.1782.

4 These dates remain in the revision of his article by G. W. Williams (1970); in 1996 it was replaced with an article by P. G. and D. P. Fowler, who cite only the second edition and date it 1922.

5 Since 1978 the Clarendon Press has been simply an imprint of the OUP, not a separate business within it.

6 We thank Mr Maw for this information and his assistant Jenny McMorris for finding the publication-date of the second edition.

7 In England, till long after the Second World War, both law and custom made 1 January a normal working day.

8 Brieger, A., BPh W 20 (1900), cols. 1576–8, in issue no. 51 of 22 December; Housman, A. E., CR 14 (1900), 367–8, in the October number; Thomas, P., Revue de I'instruction publique en Belgique 43 (1900), 191–2; Valmaggi, L., Bollettino difilologia classica 7 (1900–1), 271, in issue no. 12 of June 1901. Lambrino himself gives 1899 as the publication-date of Bailey's text; so far as we V know, he is alone in doing so. Gordon (n. 2), 68 gives January 1900.

9 Duff, J. D., CR 37 (1923), 118; Ernout, A., Revue critique d'histoire et de littérature 57 (1923), 63; Merrill, W A., CPh 18 (1928), 184. Marouzeau and Ernout give the publication-year as 1921, presumably from the editor's preface; Merrill gives 1922, Duff no date at all.

10 Rev. cit. (n. 8), 192.

11 Rev. cit. (n. 9).
