1. Notes on Demosthenes περί συμμοριω̑ν, pp.1-130.
2. Notes on Theophrastus' Characters, pp.1-246.
On p.1 is:
'Ρᾴδια πάντα θεῷ τελέσαι καὶ ἀνήνυτον οὐδέν, March 24, 1642/3.
These are both by James Duport, Regius Professor of Greek (1639-1654). The lectures on Theophrastus were printed in Needham's edition of 1712, from a MS. in the University Library (Ff. 4. 33), and those on Demosthenes in the edition of W. S. Dobson, who attributed them at first to Thomas Stanley. There is a MS. of them in the University Library (Gg. 3. 16).
