Carey, John, LL.D., an eminent classical scholar, was born in Ireland in 1756. He edited more than fifty volumes of the Regent's Classics, Ainsworth's Latin Dictionary, Schleusner's New Testament Lexicon, and the like; and was besides the author and translator of several valuable works. The Eclectic Review, referring to a work edited by him, says: "Dr. Carey's name is a guarantee for correct impression." He died in 1829.
