LEVERETT'S CÆSAR'S COMMENTARIES.
From John J. Owen, Principal of Cornelius Institute, New York, and Editor
of Xenophon's Anabasis. I have examined with some attention Cæsar's Commentaries, edited by Leverett, and Cicero's Orations, edited by Folsom, and am happy to recommend them to classical teachers, as being, in my estimation, far superior to any other editions of those works, to which students in this country have general access. The typography is fair and accurate, and the general appearance of the books does honor to the enterprising publisher. hope these editions will be extensively used in our Academies and High Schools.
(Signed) John J. OWEN, Cornelius Institute. New York, Nov. 22, 1843.
I have attentively perused Leverett's Cæsar. The neatness and accuracy of the Text, and the beautiful adaptation of the Notes, compel me to use it in preference to any other that I have seen.
(Signed) E. H. JENNY, Principal of New York Institute. New York, Nov. 1, 1843.
FOLSOM'S CICERO'S ORATIONS. From Charles E. West, Principal of Rutgers Female Institute, New York.
I take pleasure in commending to teachers the recent beautiful edition of Folsom’s Cicero. The attractiveness of its text, notes, synoptical and analytical tables, and typographical execution, led me to place it in the hands of a class of young ladies, who are reading it with delight.
(Signed) CHARLES E. WEST, Principal of R. F. 1. New York, Nov. 1, 1843.
I have examined Cicero's Orations, edited by Charles Folsom, and prefer it to any other I have seen. The Synopsis and Analysis of each Oration are so beautifully given, that it seems as a Rhetoric, as well as a Text Book for learning Latin. I shall use it exclusively in the institution under my charge.
(Signed) E. H. JENNY, Principal of New York Institute. New York, Nov. 1,
1843. I have carefully examined the recent editions of Leverett's Cæsar, and Folsom’s Cicero, and fully concur in the opinions above expressed.
