This work on German Composition is intended to take the student from a standard of elementary prose to that of rendering the most difficult passages into German.
As the majority of the pieces used in the book have been set at various University examinations, I trust that it will supply a want long felt in Upper Forms.
Among the special advantages claimed for it are the following: (1.) A comprehensive Vocabulary.—Where one word has
several meanings, the number of the exercise is
placed after each, to distinguish its usage. (2.) The division of the German clauses in Part I., to
show how the punctuation differs from the English. (3.) The introduction of difficult verse. (4.) The various extracts are not too long (each being
complete in itself), and are carefully graduated. (5.) Notes have only been added where absolutely neces
sary-grammatical rules being appended in bold
type. (6.) As the pieces used have been set at examinations,
they have therefore been specially selected to exemplify the German idiom.
