A Latin Grammar.
By Professor CHARLES E. BENNETT, Cornell University. 12mo, cloth, 282 pages. Price, 80 cents.
N this book the essential facts of Latin Grammar are pre
scholarly standards. It covers not only the work of the preparatory school, but also that of the required courses in college and university. By omitting rare forms and syntactical usages found only in ante-classical and post-classical Latin, and by relegating to an Appendix theoretical and historical questions, it has been found possible to treat the subject with entire adequacy in the compass of 250 pages exclusive of Indexes. In the German schools, books of this scope fully meet the exacting demands of the entire gymnasial course, and those who have tried Bennett's Grammar find that they are materially helped by being relieved of the mass of useless and irrelevant matter which forms the bulk of the older grammars. All Latin texts for reading in secondary schools, recently issued, contain references in the notes to Bennett's Latin Grammar.
Professor William A. Houghton, Bowdoin College, Brunswick, Maine :
The Grammar proper is admirably adapted to its purpose in its clearness of arrangement and classification, and in its simplicity and precision of statement, giving definitely just what the pupil must know, and not crowding the page with a mass of matter that too often disheartens the young student instead of helping him. I trust it will come into general use, for I think for the reasons just given, and because of its moderate compass and attractive appearance, students are likely to get more practical grammatical knowledge out of it than they generally do from the larger
grammars. John F. Peck, Oberlin Academy, Oberlin, Ohio: Bennett's Latin Grammar
was adopted as a text-book in Oberlin Academy in 1897. It is proving itself a very satisfactory text-book and increasingly popular. The teachers of Latin in Oberlin Academy are thoroughly satisfied with the book and
md it exceedingly helpful in their work. The Critic, Feb. 29, 1896. The book is a marvel of condensed, yet clear
and forcible, statement. The ground covered in the treatment of forms and syntax is adequate for ordinary school work and for the use of fresh. men and sophomores in college.
First Latin Reader.
Including Principles of Syntax and Exercises for Translation. By JARED W. SCUDDER, Latin Master in the Albany Academy. I6mo, cloth, 300 pages. Price, 90 cents. "HE first distinctive feature of this book is that the special
grammatical points to be learned in each lesson are illustrated, not in disconnected sentences, but in a continuous Latin story. This plan has the advantage of acting as a powerful incentive to work, and of emphasizing the fact that grammar is merely the means to the enjoyment of literature.
The second feature is that the exercises for translating English into Latin are based on the text immediately preceding them.
Other points of special importance are: the passages to be translated at sight, included in every lesson after the nineteenth ; the questions for the pupil, which enable him to ascertain whether he has thoroughly mastered his lesson; the incorporation of all the necessary principles of English Grammar in the body of the book; the questions in Latin referring to the text.
An Easy Latin Translation Book for Beginners. By H. R. HEATLEY and H. N. KINGDON. Revised by J. W. SCUDDER, Latin Master in the Albany Academy. I6mo, cloth, 228 pages. Price, 50 cents.
matter which will serve to arouse and stimulate the interest of the pupil in his early study of Latin. It may be used either for lessons to be regularly prepared by classes just beginning the subject, or for sight-reading by more advanced students. The special excellence of Gradatim lies in the intrinsic interest of the stories. In this respect it is equalled by no similar book that has been ever issued.
Twenty-five pages of Latin stories, which illustrate the use of the Accusative with the Infinitive, the Subjunctive of Indirect Question, and the Ablative Absolute, have been added to the original work. This is the only edition of the book in which these three subjects are especially treated.
A Junior Latin Book.
With Notes, Exercises, and Vocabulary, by Professors JOHN C. ROLFE and WALTER DENNISON, of the University of Michigan. 12mo, half leather, 498 pages. Price, $1.25. HIS book will appeal most forcibly both to those teachers
with the difficult Gallic War, and to those who prefer to prepare the way to Cæsar by the use of some easier text. To the former it offers a book that can be begun long before their classes can read Cæsar a distinct economy of time. To the latter it gives in a single carefully graded volume the varied and profitable material that has hitherto been available only by the purchase of several text-books - a distinct economy of means.
The text consists of Fables, Stories of Roman History based on Eutropius and Livy, extracts from Viri Romae, seveb. Lives of Nepos, and Books I. and II. of the Gallic War. The book also contains exercises for translation into Latin, based on the text, and many good maps and plans.
J. C. Kirtland, Jr., Phillips Academy, Exeter, N.H.: We are using Rolfe
and Dennison's Junior Latin Book with the class which began the study of Latin last September. The Roman history especially appealed to us, and we are not surprised to find by experience that it furnishes most
satisfactory material for first reading. J. Edmund Barss, Hotchkiss School, Lakeville, Conn.: The selections are,
it seems to me, well adapted to provide a substitute for the traditional
four Books of Cæsar. It is an admirably common-sense text-book. J. R. L. Johnson, Piedmont Academy, Gordonsville, Va.: It is one of the
most important contributions to the study of Latin which has appeared for years, and one which must inevitably attract the interest of all teach
ers, as it is admirably suited for the purposes for which it is intended. Nathan B. Coy, Principal of Cutler Academy, Colorado Springs, Col..
After giving the Junior Latin Book careful inspection, I do not hesitate to pronounce it the very best book for second-year Latin with which
I have any acquaintance. Capt. C. W. New, St. John's Military Academy, Delafield, Wis. : I antici
pate good results from the use of the Junior Latin Book. It is fitted for its purpose exactly, and forms a good substitute for four long Books of Cæsar.
