2. Latin Grammar. A Grammar of the Latin Lan. guage, for the use of Schools and Colleges. By Professors E. A. ANDREWS and S. STODDARD. This work, which for many years has been the text-book in the department of Latin Grammar in a large portion of American schools and colleges, and which claims the merit of having first introduced into the schools of this country the subject of grammatical analysis, which now occupies a conspicuous place in so many grammars of the English language, has been recently revised and carefully corrected in every part.

3. Questions on the Grammar. This little volume is intended to aid the student in preparing his lessons, and the teacher in conducting his recitations.

4. A Synopsis of Latin Grammar, comprising the Latin Paradigms, and the Principal Rules of Latin Etymology and Syntax. The few pages composing this work contain those portions of the Grammar to which the student has occasion to refer most frequently in the preparation of his daily lessons.

5. Latin Reader. The Reader, by means of two separate and distinct sets of notes, is equally adapted for use in connection either with the First Latin Book or the Latin Grammar.

6. Viri Romæ. This volume, like the Reader, is furnished with notes and references, both to the First Latin Book and to the Latin Grammar. The principal difference in the two sets of notes found in each of these volumes consists in the somewhat greater fulness of those which belong to the smaller series.

7. Latin Exercises. This work contains exercises in every department of the Latin Grammar, and is so arranged that it may be studied in connection with the Grammar through every stage of the preparatory course. It is designed to prepare the way for original composition in the Latin language, both in prose and verse.

8. A Key to Latin Exercises. This Key, in which all the exercises in the preceding volume are fully corrected, is intended for the use of teachers only.

9. Cæsar's Commentaries on the Gallic War, with a Dictionary and Notes. The text of this edition of Cæsar has been formed by reference to the best German editions. The Notes are principally grammatical. The Dictionary, which, like all the others in the series, was prepared with great labor, contains the usual significations of the words, together with an explanation of all such phrases as might otherwise perplex the student.

10. Sallust. Sallust's Jugurthine War and Conspiracy of Catiline, with a Dictionary and Notes. The text of this work, which was based upon that of Cortius, has been modified by reference to the best modern editions, especially by those of Kritz and Geriach; and its orthography is, in general, conformed to that of Pottier and Planche. The Dictionaries of Cæsar and Sallust connected with this series are original works, and, in con nection with the Notes in each volume, furnish a very complete and satisfac tory apparatus for the study of these vo authors.

11. Ovid. Selections from the Metamorphoses and Hero ides of Ovid, with Notes, Grammatical References, and Exercises in Scanning These selections from Ovid are designed as an introduction to Latin poetry. They are accompanied with numerous brief notes explanatory of difficult phrases, of obscure historical or mythological allusions, and especially of grammatical difficulties. To these are added such Exercises in Scanning as serve fully to introduce the student tó a knowledge of Latin prosody, and especially of the structure and laws of hexameter and pentameter verse.

ANDREWS AND STODDARD's Latin Grammar has long since been introduced into the Latin School Of the City of Boston, and into most of the other principal Classical Schools in this country. It is adopted by all the Colleges in New England, viz., Harvard, YALE, DARTMOUTH, AMHERST, Wuliams, Bowdown, WatervILLE, MIDDLEBURY, BURLINGtos, Brown UNIVERSITY at Providence, WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY at Middletown, and WASHINGTON COLLEGE at Hartford; also at Hamilton ColLEGE, New York, New York UNIVERSITY, city of New York, Cincinnati COLLEGE and Marietta COLLEGE, Ohio, Randolph Macon College, Virginia, Mount Hope COLLEGE, near Baltimore, MARYLAND INSTITUTE of Instruction and St. Mary's College, Baltiinore, and the UNIVERSITIES OF MICHIGAN and ALABAMA; and has been highly recommended by Professors Kingsley, Woolsey, Olmstead, and Gibbs, of Yale College ; Professor Beck, of Harvard College ; President Penney and Professor North, of Hamilton College; Professor Packard, of Bowdoin College ; Professor Holland, of Washington College; Professor Fisk, of Amherst College, and by Professor Hackett, of Brown University ; – also by Messrs. Dillaway and Gardner, of the Boston Latin School; Rev. Lyman Colman, of the English High School, Andover; Hon. John Hall, Principal of the Elling. ton School, Conn.; Mr. Shaler, Principal of the Connecticut Literary Institution, at Suffield; Simeon Hart, Esq., Farmington, Conn.; Prófessor Cogswell, of Round Hill School, Northampton; President Shan non, of Louisiana College, and by various periodicals.

As a specimen of the communications received from the above sources, the following extracts are given :

It gives me great pleasure to bear my testimony to the superior inerits of the Latin Grammar lately edited by Professor Andrews and Mr. Stoddard. I express most cheerfully, unhesitatingly, and decidedly, my preference of this Grammar to that of Adam, which has, for so long a tíme, kept almost undisputed sway in our schools. - Dr. C. Beck, Professor of Latin in Harvard University.

I know of no grammar published in this country, which promises to answer so well the purposes of elementary classical instruction, and shall be glad to see it introdn into our best schools. - Mr. Charles K. Dillaway, Master of the Public Latin School, Boston.

Your new Latin Grammar appears to me much better suited to the use of students than any other grammar I am acquainted with. - Professor William M. Holland, Washington College, Hartford, Conn.

I can with much pleasure say that your Grammar seems to me much better adapted to the present condition and wants of our schools than any one with which I ara acquainted, and to supply that which has long been wanted - a good Latin grammar for common use. - Mr. F. Gardner, one of the Masters Boston Lat. Sch.

Thie Latin Grammar of Andrews and Stoddard is deserving, in my opinion, of the approbation which so many of our ablest teachers have bestowed upon it. It is believed that, of all the grammars at present before the public, this has greatly the advantage, in regard both to the excellence of its arrangement, and the accuracy and copiousness of its information ; and it is earnestly hoped that its merits will procure for it that general favor and use to which it is entitled. - H. B. Huckett, Professor of Biblical Literature in Newton Theol. Sem.

The universal favor with which this Grammar is received was not unexpected. li will bear a thorongh and discriminating examination. In the use of well. oefined and expressive terms, especially in the syntax, we know of no Latin or Greek grammar which is to be compared to this. — Amer. Quarterly Register.

The Lalin Grammar of Andrews and Stoddard I consider a work of great merit. I have found in it several principles of the Latin language correctiy ex. plained which I had myself learned from a twenty years' study of that language, but had never seen illustrated in any grammar. Andrews's First Lessons 1 con

sider a valuable work for beginners, and in the sphere which it is designed to occupy, I know not that I have met its equal. Rev. James Shannon, President of College of Louisiana.

These works will furnish a series of elementary publications for the study of Latin altogether in advance of any thing which has hitherto appeared, either in this country or in England. - American Biblical Repository.

We have made Andrews and Stoddard's Latin Grammar the subject both of reference and recitation daily for several months, and I cheerfully and i ecidedly bear testimony to its superior excellence to any manual of the kind with which I am acquainted. Every part bears the impress of a careful compiler. The principles of syntax are happily developed in the rules, whilst those relating to the moods and tenses supply an important deficiency in our former grammars. The rules of prosody are also clearly and fully exhibited. - Rev. Lyman Colemun, Principal of Burr Seminary, Manchester, Vt.

I have examined Andrews and Stoddard's Latin Grammar, and regard it as superior to any thing of the kind now in use. It is what has long been needed, and will undoubtedly be welcomed by every one interested in the philology of the Latin language. We shall hereafter use it as a text-book in this institution - Mr. Wm. H. Shaler, Principal of the Connecticut Lit. Institution at Suffield.

This work bears evident marks of great care and skill, and ripe and accurate scholarship in the authors. It excels most grammars in this particular, that, while by its plainness it is suited to the necessities of most beginners, by its fulness and detail it will satisfy the inquiries of the advanced scholar, and will be a suitable companion at all stages of his progress. We cordially commend it to the student and teacher. - Biblicul Repository.

Your Grammar is what I expected it would be - an excellent book, and just the thing which was needed. We cannot hesitate a moment in laying aside the books now in use, and introducing this. – Rev. J. Penney, D. D., President of Hamilton College, New York.

Your Grammar bears throughout evidence of original and thorough investigation and sound criticism. I hope, and doubt not, it will be adopted in our schools and colleges, it being, in my apprehension, so far as simplicity is concerned, on the one hand, and philosophical views and sound scholarship on the other, far preferable to other grammars; a work at the same time highly creditable to your. selves and to our country. --- Professor A. Packard, Bowdoin College, Maine.

This Grammar appears to me to be accommodated alike to the wants of the new beginner and the expericnced scholar, and, as such, well fitted to supply what has long been felt to be a great desideratum in the department of classical learning.-- Professor S. North, Hamilton College, New York.

From such an examination of this Grammar as I have been able to give it, I do not hesitate to pronounce it superior to any other with which I am acquainted.. I have never seen, any where, a greater amount of valuable matter compressed within limits equally narrow. -Hon. John Hall, Prin. of Ellington School, Conn.

We have no hesitation in pronouncing this Grammar decidedly superior to any now in use. — Boston Recorder.

I am ready to express my great satisfaction with your Grammar, and do not hesitate to say, that I am better pleased with such portions of the syntax as ] have perused, than with the corresponding portions in any other grammar with: which I am acquainted. — Professor N. W. Fiske, Amherst College, Mass.

I know of no grammar in the Latin language so well adapted to answer tho purpose for which it was designed as this. The book of Questions is a valuable attendant of the Grammar.-- Simeon Hart, Esq., Farmington, Conn.

This Grammar has received the labor of years, and is the result of much re flection and experience, and mature scholarship. As such, it claims the atten tion of all who are interested in the promotion of sound learning. - N. Y. Obs.

This Grammar is an original work. Its arrangement is philosophical, and its rules clear and precise, beyond those of any other grammar we have seen Portland Christian Mirror.









Genuine education exercises deeper powers than the memory. That mind only is truly educated, which can hang up, as it were, a subject before it, view it distinctly in all its bearings, compare them carefully, weigh them justly, and then form a correct decision for itself.
