Founded in 1868 by the Cambridge scholars John Eyton Bickersteth Mayor (1825 1910), William George Clark (1821 78), and William Aldis Wright (1831 1914), this biannual journal was a successor to The Journal of Classical and Sacred Philology (also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection). Unlike its short-lived precursor, it survived for more than half a century, until 1920, spanning the period in which specialised academic journals developed from more general literary reviews. Predominantly classical in subject matter, with contributions from such scholars as J. P. Postgate, Robinson Ellis and A. E. Housman, the journal also contains articles on historical and literary themes across the 35 volumes, illuminating the growth and scope of philology as a discipline during this period. Volume 12, comprising issues 23 and 24, was published in 1883."
