Revised, with Corrections and Additions. A Grammar of the Latin Language; for the use of Schools and Colleges. Sixty-Fifth Edition.

BY PROF. E. A. ANDREWS AND S. STODDARD,

In announcing the Revised Edition of Andrews' & Stoddard's Latin Grammar, the Publishers believe it to be quite unnecessary to speak of the merits of the work. The fact that in the space of about Twenty years, SIXTY-FIVE EDITIONS, numbering above TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND COPIES, have been required for the purpose of meeting the steadily increasing demand for the work, sufficiently evinces the estimation in which it has been held.

In preparing this Revised and Enlarged edition, every portion of the original work has been reconsidered in the light of the experience of twenty years spent by the present editor in studies connected with this department of education, and with the aid of numerous publications in the same department, which, during this period, have issued from the European press. The results of this labor are apparent on almost every page, in new modifications of the old materials, and, especially, in such additional information in regard to its various topics as the present advanced state of classical education in this country seemed obviously to demand.

Its merits have been so fully appreciated that it has been adopted as a Text-Book in nearly every College and Seminary in the country. The present edition has not only been thoroughly revised and corrected (two years of continuous labor having been devoted to its careful revision, and to the purpose of rendering it conformable in all respects to the advanced position which it aims to occupy,) but it contains at least one-third more matter than the previous editions. To unite the acknowledged excellencies of the older English Manuals, and of the more recent German Grammars, was the special aim of the authors of this work; and to this end particular attention was directed-1st. To the preparation of more extended rules for the pronunciation of the language: 2d. To a clear exposition of its inflectional changes: 3d. To a proper basis of its syntax: and 4th. To greater precision in rules and definitions. The publishers commend this new edition to the attention of teachers throughout the country, and express the hope that, in its present form, it will be deemed worthy of a continuance of the favor which it has so long received. The following are extracts from a few of the many letters the publishers have received from teachers in all parts of the country in commendation of the Grammar and other of the series:

"I have no doubt that the time is near at hand, when this series of works will, by all lovers of the classics, be considered as the "National Series." I will hail with joy the day when every college and school in our country shall have adopted Prof. Andrews' series as the foundation of true classic knowledge." [Martin Armstrong, Potomac Sem.. Romney, Va.

Allow me to say, after a careful examination, that, in my judgment, it is the best manual of Latin Grammar to be found in the English language."-[N. E. Cobleigh, Prof. of Anc. Lang. and Lit., Lawrence University, Appleton, Wis.

46

The improvements introduced into the last edition of Andrews' & Stoddard's Latin Grammar, add very decidedly to the value of a work which has done more to give the knowledge of that language to the youth of this country than any, perhaps than all others.-[Theodore W. Woolsey, President of Yale College, New Haven.

"No book, probably, has done more to improve classical training in American schools, than Andrews' & Stoddard's Latin Grammar. Its use is almost universal."-[Thomas A. Thacher, Prof. of Latin in Yale College, New Haven.

"There is no other school grammar that can pretend to compare with it. The services of Professor Andrews, in the cause of classical learning in the United States, cannot be over-estimated."-[M. Sturgus, Prof. in Hanover College, Indiana.

"I do not hesitate to say that its value has been greatly enhanced, and that it has been brought as near as practicable to the present state of philological science."-[John D. Philbrick, Superintendent of Public Schools, City of Boston.

"I have subjected the Revised Edition to the test of actual use in the recitation room, and am persuaded that, in its present form, it decidedly surpasses every other Latin Grammar in point of adaptation to the wants of students in our Academies, High Schools and Colleges."-[William S. Palmer, Central High School, Cleveland, Ohio.

In addition to the "Grammar," Professor E, A. Andrews has prepared the following, comprising the Series of Latin School Books, viz:

COMPREHENSIVE

DICTIONARY.

For Schools, Counting-Rooms, and Families.

REVISED AND ENLARGED........

....BY J. E. WORCESTER, LL. D.

One Volume. Large 12mo. 608 pages. Price, $1.12.

1. This book contains a greater quantity of useful matter than any other Dictionary of the same size and price.

A comparison of Dr. Worcester's Comprehensive with Dr. Webster's Academic, will show that the vocabulary of the former Dictionary is greater by several thousand English words than that of the latter. The table of Greek and Latin Proper Names, in the Comprehensive, contains 4000 more names than that of the Academic; and the remaining tables are more copious in the former work than the corresponding ones in the latter. Many mistakes recorded in other school dictionaries are here corrected in these pronouncing vocabularies. There is also an important table containing the pronunciation of the names of distinguished men of modern times, 3000 in number, in this work, not found in any other of the same kind.

rate.

2. The Definitions have been made with great care. They are concise, comprehensive and accu3. The Synonyms are especially adapted to the wants of the student. They are clearly expressed, and will be readily understood.

4. The Spelling is that of the world of letters; not provincial, but that of all eminent American and English authors.

5. The Pronunciation is indicated by a simple system of marks, more accurately than by any other system in use. In cases of disputed or various pronunciation, the opinions and modes of all eminent orthoepists are given, thus presenting, in little space, the useful matter of all important pronouncing dictionaries. Valuable notes concerning pronunciation are given throughout the volume.

SCHOOLS, COUNTING-ROOMS & FAMILIES. A NEW EDITION. REVISED AND ENLARGED. BY J. E. WORCESTER, LL. D.

One Volume. 12mo. 400 pages. Price, 75 cents.

This Dictionary contains a very full vocabulary of the common and well-authorized words of the language. The design has been to secure great accuracy in the Definitions, Pronunciation and Spelling of words, and to comprise as much useful matter in the space allowed as possible. Innovations which have no sanction from English usage, or the prevailing and best usage of this country, have been avoided as corruptions of the language. The superior mechanical execution of the work, and its clear, distinct print, will contribute much to its convenience as a manual. The preliminary treatise on Orthoepy, and the List of Words of Doubtful Orthography, will be found very useful, and also the Appendix, which contains Foreign Words, Pronunciation of Greek and Latin Names, Pronunciation of Scripture Names, Pronunciation of Modern Geographical Names, Signs of Planets, Abbreviations, &c.

Liberal terms made for introduction in schools. Copies will be sent by mail, postage paid, on receipt of price, or will be furnished to Teachers and Committees for examination at half price,
