Toup's reputation was established by his "
in Suidam", the first part of which was published in 1760, the second part in 1764, and the third part in 1766. The "
" were followed by an "Epistola Critica" to Bishop Warburton in 1767, in which Toup made some derisive comments about Bishop Lowth, while flattering Warburton for his learning. A volume of "Curae novissimae sive appendicula notarum et emendationum in Suidam" was published in 1775.
A list of his works, which are very numerous, will be found in his biography by John Scandrett Harford (2nd ed, 1841). In addition to those already referred to may be mentioned his "Essay on the Study of Antiquities", "The First Principles of Christian Knowledge"; "Reflections on the Controversial Writings of Dr Priestley", "
in Suidam et Hesychium et alios Lexicographos Graecos"; "The Bible, and nothing but the Bible, the Religion of the Church of England".
The following year Porson wrote his "Notae breves ad Toupii
in Suidam", though this treatise did not appear until 1790 in the new edition of Jonathan Toup's book published at Oxford. These first made Porson's name known as a scholar, and carried his fame beyond England. The letters he received from Christian Gottlob Heine and Johann Gottfried Jakob Hermann were preserved in the library of Trinity College.
Bryan published a sermon on the election of the lord mayor in 1718, and just before his death he had finished the printing of an edition of Plutarch's "Lives". It was completed by Moses du Soul, and was published under the title of "Plutarchi Chæronensis Vitæ Parallelæ, cum singulis aliquot. Græce et Latine. Adduntur variantes Lectiones ex MSS. Codd. Veteres et Novæ, Doctorum Virorum Notæ et
, et Indices accuratissimi", 5 vols., London, 1723–9. It contains heads of the illustrious persons, engraved from gems. The Greek text is printed from the Paris edition of 1624, with a few corrections, and the Latin translation is also mainly adopted from that edition.
One of Valla's most remarkable achievements lay in his emendations of Latin texts. He made countless suggestions for better readings in his manuscript of Livy's "Ab urbe condita", which, in the previous century, had belonged to Petrarch, who, likewise had inserted emendations. The emendation of Livy was also a topic discussed in book IV of his "Antidotum in Facium", an invective against Bartolomeo Facio. In this part of the treatise, which also circulated independently under the title "
in T. Livium", Valla elucidates numerous corrupt passages and criticises the attempts at emendation made by Panormita and Facio, his rivals at the court of Alfonso the Magnanimous.
Some years later, from 1856 to 1863, Madvig was president of the Danish parliament and leader of the National Liberal Party. With these brief interruptions the greater part of his life was devoted to the study and teaching of Latin and the improvement of the classical schools, of which he was chief inspector. As a critic of classical texts he was distinguished for learning and acumen. He devoted much attention to Cicero, and revolutionized the study of his philosophical writings by an edition of "De Finibus" (1839). Other major contributions to classical scholarship are his "
Livianae" (1860; 2d ed. 1877) and the papers collected in his "Opuscula Academica" ('Minor Academic Works') (1838) and "Adversaria Critica" (3 vols., 1871–84). Perhaps his most widely known works are those on Latin grammar and Greek syntax, especially his Latin grammar for schools (Eng. trans. by G Woods).
Cunningham became a friend of Pieter Burman the Elder. In 1711 he discovered from Thomas Johnson, a Scottish bookseller and publisher at The Hague, that Richard Bentley was the author of the criticism inflicted on his friend Jean Leclerc for his edition of the fragments of Menander. In 1721 he published a malevolent "Alexandri Cuninghamii Animadversiones in Richardi Bentleii Notas et
ad Q. Horatium Flaccum". In the same year he published his own critical edition of Horace, as "Q. Horatii Flacci Poemata". He also worked at his editions of Virgil and Phædrus, published at Edinburgh after his death, and projected books on the Pandects and the evidences of Christianity. His posthumous works, published in Edinburgh, were:
His emendations, of which a large number were published under the title of "Observationes et
", were not confined to lawbooks, but extended to many of the Latin and Greek classical authors. In jurisprudence his study was far from being devoted solely to Justinian; he recovered and gave to the world a part of the Theodosian Code, with explanations; and he procured the manuscript of the Basilica, a Greek abridgment of Justinian, afterwards published by Fabrot. He also composed a commentary on the "Consuetudines Feudorum", and on some books of the "Decretals". In the "Paratitla", or summaries which he made of the "Digest", and particularly of the Code of Justinian, he condensed into short axioms the elementary principles of law, and gave definitions remarkable for their admirable clearness and precision. His lessons, which he never, dictated, were continuous discourses, for which he made no other preparation than that of profound meditation on the subjects to be discussed. He was impatient of interruptions and upon the least noise he would instantly quit the chair and retire. He was strongly attached to his pupils, and Joseph Justus Scaliger affirms that he lost more than 4000 livres by lending money to the more needy of them.
Graetz's historical studies, extending back to Biblical times, naturally led him into the field of exegesis. As early as the fifties he had written in the "Monatsschrift" essays dealing with exegetical subjects, as "Fälschungen in dem Texte der LXX." (1853) and "Die Grosse Versammlung: Keneset Hagedola " (1857); and with his translation of and commentaries on Ecclesiastes and Canticles (Breslau, 1871) he began the publication of separate exegetical works. A commentary and translation of the Psalms followed (ib. 1882-83). Toward the end of his life he planned an edition of the whole Hebrew Bible with his own textual emendations. A prospectus of this work appeared in 1891. Shortly before the author's death, a part of it, Isaiah and Jeremiah, was issued in the form in which the author had intended to publish it; the rest contained only the textual notes, not the text itself. It was edited, under the title "
in Plerosque Sacræ Scripturæ Veteris Testamenti Libros," by W. Bacher (Breslau, 1892–94).
