PREFACE

TO THE AMERICAN EDITION.

THE Editor conceives that he is rendering an important service to the American student in the republication of the present work. Its excellence is acknowledged by all European scholars, and now that it has received the last touches from the hand of its learned author, we may confidently regard it as the best work on the subject of Latin Grammar in the English language. The Syntax, in particular, will be found exceedingly valuable, and this part of the volume alone would be sufficient to render the work an invaluable aid to the young scholar. The Translator has alluded in his Preface to certain additions that might have. been made by him to the etymological part from English sources, and has excused himself for not having furnished these, because the Author has himself abstained from them. These deficiencies, if they are deserving of the name, the American Editor has attempted to supply in foot-notes throughout the volume, as well as in two additional Appendices; and he trusts that he may now recommend the work with perfect confidence to the American student, as far superior to any Grammar of the Latin Language at present used in this country.

Columbia College, December 24, 1845.
