A Commentary on the Psalms, Vol. 2
Excerpt from A Commentary on the Psalms, Vol. 2: From Primitive and Mediaeval Writers; And From the Various Office-Books and Hymns of the Roman, Mazarabic, Ambrosian, Gallican, Greek, Coptic, Armenian, and Syrian RitesThe circumstances under which this second volume of the Commentary on the Psalms is issued seem to call for a few words of explanation.The long interval which has elapsed since the appearance of the earlier portion is due in part to the necessarily slow progress involved by the complicated plan of the work, in part to the unceasing activity of Dr. Neale in other fields of literary toil, and in part, unhappily, to the failure of physical power which began to tell upon him several months before his fatal illness disclosed itself.He had reached only to the fifth verse of Psalm lix. when he was struck down, and the fragment thus prepared was scarcely large enough for separate publication.It was his earnest desire that his plan should not remain incomplete, and he indicated an accomplished friend, poet and scholar like himself, as his successor in the task. That friend was obliged, by the pressure of other claims, to decline the undertaking; and the call was next made upon me.I believed that I should better carry out the wishes of my dear friend by attempting to continue those labours which had so often formed the subject of discussion between us, than by declining the responsibility, as I well might have done, on the double ground of the inherent difficulty of the task, and my own very inadequate powers of grappling with it.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
