Lexicon, Index, &c., $1. " ARNOLD'S GREEK AND LATIN Series.—The publication of this valuable collection of classical school books may be regarded as the presage of better things in respect to the movie of teaching and acquiring languages. Heretofore boys have been condemned to the drudgery of going over Latin and Greek Grammar without the remotest conception of the value of what They were learning, and every day becoming more and more disgusted with the dry and un. meaning task; but now, by Ár. Arnold's admirable method-substantially the same with that of Oliendorff--- he moment they take up the study of Latin or Greek, they begin to learn sentences. 17 acquire ideas, to sce how the Romans and Greeks expressed themselves, how their mode of expression differed from ours, and by degrees they lay up a stock of knowledge which is utteriy astonishing to those who have dragged on month after month in the old-lashioned, dry, and tedious way of learning languages.
“Mr. Arnold, in fact, has had the good sense to adopt the system of nature. A child leams his own language by imitating what he hears, and constantly repeating it till it is fastene i in the memory; in the same way Mr. A. puts the pupil immediately to work at Exercises in Latin and Greek, involving the elementary principles of the language--words are supplied-the mode of putting them together is told the pupil—he is shown how the ancients expressed their ideas ; and then, by repeating these things again and again-iterum iterumque--the docile pupil has them indelibly impressed upon his memory and rooted in his understanding.
“The American Editor is a thorough classical scholar, and has been a practical teacher for years in this city. He has devoted the utmost care to a complete revision of Mr. Arnold's works, has corrected several errors of inadvertence or otherwise, has rearranged and improved various matters in the early volumes of the series, and has attended most diligently to the accurate prini ing and mechanical execution of the whole. We anticipate most confidently the speedy adoption of these works in our schools and colleges."
Arnold's Scries of Classical Works has attained a circulation almost unparalleled, being introduced in nearly all the Colleges and leading Educational Institutions in the United Statos
GESENIUS'S HEBREW GRAMMAR. Fourteenth Edition, as revised by Dr. E. RODIGER. Translated by T.J. CONANT,
Professor of Hebrew in Madison University, N. Y.
of Stepney College, London.
Preface. “ The fourteenth edition of the Hebrew Grammar of Gesenius is now offered to the public by the translator of the eleventh e lition, by whom this work was first made accessible to stu dents in the English language. The conviction expressed in his preface to that edition, that its publication in this country would subserve the interests of Hebrew literature, has been fully sustained by the result. After a full trial of the merits of this work, both in America and in E-gland, its republication is now demanded in its latest and most improved form.”
