Commentaries on tho Philosophy of Plato, and a considerable Portion of suoh as are already published, 1S04, 5 vols, r. 4to. Printed at the expense of the Duke of Norfolk, who locked up nearly the whole edition in his house, where it remained until long after his decease. The publication price was £10 10*.: but the copies were sold off in 1848, and the price reduoed to £5 5«.

"Thanks to the learning and industry of Messrs. Sydenham and Taylor, we have now the whole of the works of thin wonderful philosopher brought within the reach of the English public, with a great variety of learned notes and instructive dissertations. The works of Plato may be properly considered the Scriptures of the ancient heathen world."—Dr. Adam Clarke.

This edition is critically reviewed in the Edinburgh Review for April, 1809,187-211 ; and, whilst Sydenham's scholarship is commended, Taylor is castigated without mercy:

"Mr. Taylor has done it shockingly. His langunge j* Btiffand awkward, and uncouth to a degree that has hardly any example even among those literal translations which have been provided for the use of schools. Nor is this the worst. Mr. Taylor has by no means given us a fair representation even of the meaning of Plato. lie has not translated Plato; he has travestied him in tho most cruel and abominable manner. lie has not elucidated, but covered him over with impenetrable darkness. . . . Any competent scholar has but to open the book,—and if he compares one page with the original the chance is great that he will light Upon more blunders than one.. . . We are quite satisfied that his general practice has been to interpret directly from the Latin translation, without so much as looking at the Greek; for the cases are so numerous in which we have found his translation an exact copy of the Latin, and in which an inspection of the Greek could hardly have tailed to convince him ho was wrong, that we have been nnable to form any other conclusion. . . . Wo have already adduced abundant proof of Mr. Taylor's lamentable deficiency in every requisite for tho performance of his arduous task."—Pp. 190, 201, 211.

lie published the Abridgment of Edwards's History of the West Indies, 1794, 3 vols. 8vo, (see Edwards, Bryan, M.P.,) and contributed many papers to the Classical Journal, Nos. 32, 33, 34, 42, 43, 45, 47, 48, 51, 52, 55, 56, 57, and 58, and the European and Monthly Magazines. Of these fugitive pieces a complete collection of the Chaldrean Oracles was republished by Mr. Cory. These and Mr. Taylor's other persevering labours in his chosen department of research failed to kindle tho first spark of gratitude in the bosom of the " Literary Idler" of Blackwood's Magazine, who thus irreverently assails tho Philosopher of Walworth:

"If I knew Valpy, I should certainly expostulate with him for allowing Taylor the Platonist to write iu his journal. The man is an ass, iu the first place; secondly,he knows nothing of the religion of which he is so great a fool as to profess himself a votary ; and, thirdly, ho knows less than nothing of the language about which he is continually writing."—June, 1825, 737: Rote.-Book of a Literary Idler, No. 1.

Mil thins is as little disposed to he complimentary to our translator:

"Thomas Taylor, . . . the would-be restorer of unintelligible mysticism and superstitions pagan nonsense; in short, of all that Iamblichus revealed to ^desius."—lhirmits of Lit., Dial. 111., No. 15.

De Quinccy, having occasion to refer to William Taylor of Norwich, remarks,

"Taylor the l'latonist, who was far more distinguished for absurdity, is now equally illustrious fur obscurity."—l'hilosophicat Writers, i., (Sir James Mackintosh.)

The author of the obituary notice of Taylor in the London Athenaeum tells us that

"Mr. Taylor was not so much a Platonist as a Neo-PJatonician; he followed less the pure doctrines of the Academy than their extension by the school of Alexandria and the Sophists. . . . The compound of nil Eastern anil Western metaphysics preached by the later Plntonicians, patronized by the emperor Julian, and advocated by the Sophists, as a rival to Christianity, is realty tho Platonic system developed by Mr. Taylor. His admiration of these writers was unliounded; and his enthusiasm was not at all abated by fiudiug himself alone in his worship." —183ft, 874.

"We talked of Knglish national character. I told him it was not creditable that no one in nil the country knew any thing of Thomas Taylor the Platonist, whilst in every American library his translations are found. 1 said, 'If Plato's Republic wero published in England, as a new book, to-day, do you think it would find any readers?' lie confessed it would not: 'and yet,' he added, after a pause, with that complacency which never deserts a true-born Englishman, ' and vet we have embodied it all.'"— Emerson's Representative Men, Lon., 18611, 39.
