Excerpt from The Orations of Demosthenes and Aeschines on the Crown: With Introductory Essays and Notes<br><br>Rather than knowledge, judgment rather than insight, tend increasingly to become the distinctive qualities of the ideal editor. Of the questions which the Orations on the Crown have hitherto suggested, the greater part have upon the whole been adequately answered: only long and wide experience in tuition can supply an answer to the further questions, what an editor ought to expect from the reader, and what he may leave to be supplied by the teacher; when to quote and when to refer, what to repeat and what to assume. Even with this training it is easy to say too little or too much; and, as other helps multiply, it becomes safer every day to err, if at all, in the direction of saying too little, to avoid repetition as much as possible, and simply to add one's own gleanings to the rich store gathered by the labourers of earlier days.<br><br>About the Publisher<br><br>Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
