DESCRIPTION OF THE SERIES.
I.-Practical Lessons in English Grammar.
This little book contains a brief synopsis of the leading principles of English Grammar, every part of which is illustrated by a great variety of exercises, of the simplest character, adapted to the capacity of pupils at an early age. New edition, revised and improved.
II. The Principles of English Grammar.
This work is intended as a School Grammar, for the use of classes pursuing this branch of study in the common schools, or, of the junior classes in academies. It embraces all that is important on the subject, expressed with accuracy, brevity and simplicity, and is peculiarly adapted to the purposes of instruction in public schools.
III. Introduction to the Analytical and Practical Grammar.
This edition has been prepared expressly to serve as an introduction to the " Analytical and Practical Grammar of the English Language." The definitions and rules are the same throughout as in that work, and are arranged in the same order.
IV. The Analytical and Practical English Grammar.
This work, designed for the more advanced classes in schools and academies, is prepared on a more extended plan than the preceding, though not essentially different from it. The arrangement (except in syntax), the definitions and rules, are the same, but with much greater fulness in the illustrations and exercises, intended to lead the student into a thorough and critical acquaintance with the structure and use of the English language.
V.-Exercises in Analysis and Parsing.
This little work consists of selections in prose and poetry from standard writers, so arranged as to furnish a convenient and progressive course of exercises in Analysis and Parsing, in every variety of style, with such occasional references to the grammars as are deemed necessary to explain peculiar or difficult constructions. To this is prefixed directions for the analysis of sentences, and models both of analysis and parsing.
VI-The Principles of Latin Grammar.
This work is upon the foundation of Adams' Latin Grammar, so long and favorably known as a text-book, and combines with all
that is excellent in that work many important corrections and improvements, suggested by subsequent writers, or the result of the author's own reflection and observation, during many years, as a classical teacher.
VII.-Jacob's Latin Reader, with Latin Idioms.
This work forms a sequel to the Grammar, and an introduction to the study of Latin classic authors. It begins with a series of simple and plain sentences, mostly selected from classic writers, to exemplify and illustrate the leading construction of the language, followed by Reading Lessons, of pure and simple Latin, chiefly narrative, by which the pupil, while he becomes familiar with the construction of the language, is also made acquainted with many of the most prominent characters and mythological fables of antiquity, as well as with the leading events of Roman history. Throughout the work, references are constantly made, at the foot of the page, to the Grammar and Introduction, when necessary to explain the construction, or assist the pupil in his preparations.
VIII.-First Lessons in Greek.
This work is intended chiefly for those who begin the study of Greek at an early age; and for this reason contains only the out-. lines of Grammar, expressed in as clear and simple a manner as possible. It is complete in itself, being a Grammar, Exercises, Reading Book, and Lexicon, all in one; so that the pupil, while studying this, needs no other book on the subject. The knowledge acquired by the study of this work will be an important preparation to the young student for commencing the study of Greek Grammar with ease and advantage.
IX.-The Principles of Greek Grammar.
This work is intended to be a comprehensive manual of Greek Grammar, adapted to the use of the younger, as well as of the more advanced students in schools and colleges. Both in Etymology and Syntax, the leading principles of Greek Grammar are exhibited in definitions and rules, as few and as brief as possible, in order to be easily committed to memory, and so comprehensive as to be of general and easy application. This work is now more extensively used than any other of the kind in the country.
X.-Greek Reader, with Greek Idioms.
This work, like the Latin Reader, is properly a sequel to the Greek Grammar, and an introduction to the study of the Greek classic authors. It seeks to accomplish its object in the same way as the Latin Reader. (See above, No. VII.) With these are connected
SPENCER'S LATIN LESSONS, with exercises in parsing, introductory to Bullions' Latin Grammar.
In this series of books, the three Grammars, English, Latin, and Greek, are all on the same plan. The general arrangement, definitions, rules, &c., are the same, and expressed in the same language, as nearly as the nature of the case would admit. Το those who study Latin and Greek, much time and labor, it is believed, will be saved by this method, both to teacher and pupil. The analogy and peculiarities of the different languages being kept in view, will show what is common to all, or peculiar to each; the confusion and difficulty unnecessarily occasioned by the use of elementary works differing widely from each other in language and structure, will be avoided, and the progress of the student rendered much more rapid, easy, and satisfactory.
No series of Grammars, having this object in view, has heretofore been prepared, and the advantages which they offer cannot be obtained in an equal degree by the study of any other Grammars now in use. They form a complete course of elementary books, in which the substance of the latest and best Grammars in each language has been compressed into a volume of convenient size, beautifully printed on superior paper, neatly and strongly bound, and are put at the lowest prices at which they can be afforded.
The elementary works intended to follow the Grammarsnamely, the Latin Reader and the Greek Reader-are also on the SAME PLAN; are prepared with special references to these works, and contain a course of elementary instruction so unique and simple, as to furnish great facilities to the student in these languages.
XI. Cæsar's Commentaries on the Gallic War.
In this work the plan of the Latin Reader is carried on throughout. The same introduction on the Latin idioms is prefixed for convenience of reference, and the same mode of reference to the Grammar and introduction is continued. The Notes are neither too meagre nor too voluminous. They are intended not to do the work of the student for him, but to direct and assist him in doing it for himself. It is embellished with a beautiful Map of Gaul and several wood-cuts, representing the engines of war used by the Romans.
XII.-Cicero's Select Orations.
With Notes critical and explanatory; adapted to Bullions' Latin Grammar, and also to the Grammar of Andrews and Stoddard. This selection contains the four orations against Catiline, the oration for the poet Archias, for Marcellus, for Q. Ligarius, for king Diotarus, for the Manilian law, and for Milo. The Notes are
