F. Jacoby, Die Fragmente der griechischen Historiker. CD-Rom Edition. Leiden: Brill, 2004. ISBN 90-04-14137-5. €1,500.00.

Reviewed by John Marincola, The Florida State University (jmarinco@mailer.fsu.edu)

The review includes some good comments on the limitations of such an edition which is not a whole lot more than a page-based scan of the printed volumes (and incredibly expensive…), without denying that the indices and search facility make it invaluable to the historian.
