NOTES ON BOOKS.
Ten Lectures. By Edward Newenham Hoare, M.A.,
These ten lectures, delivered by the Dean of Waterford before a select audience comprising the teachers of the various public and private schools in that city, are addressed to intelligent and educated persons, who have, however, little or no acquaintance with the classics, for the purpose of promoting the acquisition of that knowledge strongly commended by Locke, who tells us that, “ if we knew the original of all the words we meet with, we should thereby be very much helped to know the ideas they were first applied to and made to stand for." The work will, however, be read with interest by those who do know something of Latin, and who cannot fail in the course of its perusal, to pick up some curious information on a subject of considerable interest and great practical utili
ity. The book, which is appropriately dedicated to the Father of English Philologists, Dr. Richardson, is made yet more useful by capital Indices.
