Item description for Georg Busolt: His Career in His Letters (Mnemosyne, Bibliotheca Classica Batava Supplementum) by Mortimer H. Chambers & Georg Busolt...
This book is a study of Georg Busolt (1850-1920), a noted German historian of classical Greece. The treatment is based on a collection of his own letters, mainly written to other scholars. Over 100 letters from Busolt to others are collected and edited here. Each letter, in the original German, is pre- sented with commentary and the whole is woven into a chrono- logical narrative and survey of Busolt's career. There are four chapters (The Busolt Family; Konigsberg; Kiel, Gottingen), the last three corresponding to the universities where he studied and taught. Despite Busolt's eminence and the continued usefulness of his two great handbooks (Griechische Geschichte; Griechische Staatskunde), nothing has ever been written about him. Moreover, the narrative gives a picture of Prussian univer- sities and academic issues during his period - a crucial one for the development of German education - and is thus a con- tribution to the history of scholarship.
