PREFACE
TO
THE
SECOND EDITION.
THE
first edition of' the present lectures, published in 1844,was based entirely upon notes taken during their delivery in
tile
University of Bonn, in the ycars 1828 and 1829, the lasttime that Nicbuhr lectured on Roman history. When Dr.Isler wa,s afterwards entrusted with tlie preparationof aGerman edition of the same lcctures, hc thought it right toavail himself also of the notes of an
earlier
course of lectureson the same subjcct, which Niebuhr had delivered duringthe winter of 1826 and 1827. In this earlier course, tliehistorian did not embrace thc whole history of Rome, butonly the portion from the carliest tirnes down to the deathof Sertoriusl, and he was conscquently enabled to treat hissubject more in dctail than in the later course. In preparingthe new edition,
I
have made use of everything which Dr.Isler has thus incorporated in his edition from the course of1826 and 1827. The amount of this additional matter is veryconsiderable, occupying nearly one hundred pages of the pre-sent edition.
In
the lectures relating to the period
subsequent
to the death of Sertorius, the additions and corrections are lessnumerous and i~nportant; s for this portion of the history,the German editor had no other notes than such as had beentalcen during the course of 1828 and 1829; that part of theGerman edition therefore presents no other differences fromthe first English edition, than thosc arising from the fact, thatthe two cditions were formed froin sets of notcs taken
by
different students.
In
the latcst part
of
the history, however, an importantaddition has been introduced from the German edition, namely,the history from the death of Constantine down to the over-throw of the Western Empire. The history of that period wasnot published in the first edition, because
I
had no manuscriptnotes referring to that time, having, along with most otherstudents, left the university before Kiebuhr ceased lecturing.This part has now been translated from the German edition,
