A. K. Gavrilov. On Philologists and Philology: Articles and Speeches / Ed. by O. Budaragina, A. Verlinsky, D. Keyer. St. Petersburg University Publishing House. St. Petersburg, 2011 – 380 P.

The present collection of articles and speeches of Alexander Gavrilov on classical philology in Russia, dating from the mid-1970s to 2010, is briefly characterized by the editors, who are close colleagues of the author. This selection is based mostly, but not exclusively, on St. Petersburg scholars and institutions. Besides the selective approach, translations of some items published previously only in German or English were prepared especially for this volume: seven articles translated by Serafima A. Gavrilova, are marked in the Table of Contents by the asterisk. As a whole, one third of the articles in the book were revised or written for this occasion.

The book is a commented edition of Neo-Latin inscriptions dated from the 18th – 20th centuries in St. Petersburg.

Jakob Borovskij. Opera philologica. St. Petersburg: Bibliotheca classica Petropolitana, Dmitry Bulanin, 2009. – P. 642. ISBN 978-5-86007-618-1

The present volume contains an impressive selection of works by an eminent St. Peters¬burg Classical scholar and Neo-Latin poet Jakov M. Borovskij (1896–1994).

Being a connoisseur of ancient Greek and Latin, J. Borovskij, due to the life circumstances as well as to particular qualities of his research behaviour, did not write any monograph. His numerous articles and paragraphs often published in editions difficult of access or of limited circulation had been never previously brought together. The book in question for the first time brings the works of J. Borovskij together and is aimed at demonstration of breadth as well as of profundity of his careful studies. J. Borovskij’s files were handed down by the heirs to Bibliotheca Classica Petropolitana, which enabled the editors to publish some of his manuscripts and to define more exactly some points in the scholar’s previously published works.

After appearance of Inscriptiones antiquae orae septentrionalis Ponti Euxini (IosPE) II (1890) / IV (1901) academician V. V. Latyshev (1855–1921) engaged himself in preparing a new edition of inscriptions of the Bosporus Kingdom, which he did not manage to carry through. In the 1940s this work was resumed by the Institute of History of the Soviet Academy of Sciences (Leningrad branch), and in 1965 it published Korpus Bosporskikh Nadpisej (The Corpus of Bosporan Inscrip¬tions = Corpus Inscriptionum Regni Bosporani, CIRB). Unfortunately, the volume did not include abundant photo material collected for this edition and preserved at the Institute of History of the Russian Academy of Sciences (St. Petersburg) and Institute for the History of Material Culture (St. Petersburg). The aim of the present volume was to fill up this important gap.
