The Critias Atlanticus

Davis, Henry

Rev. Henry Davis together with Henry Cary (1804-1870) and George Burges (1786-1864) in the 19th century published a translation of all of Plato’s works in six volumes. Davis’ translation of Critias was recently included in The Critias Atlanticus.

His translation of both the Critias and Timaeus is now available(a) as a free ebook. The Reverend gentleman displayed little Christian Charity when in the Introduction he described the translation of Thomas Taylor as “uncouth, obscure, un-English and often extremely erroneous.”
