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 20, comprising issues 39 and 40, was published in 1892.
