HARKNESS'S LATIN GRAMMAR,

ANDREWS & STODDARD'S LATIN GRAMMAR,
BULLIONS & MORRIS'S LATIN GRAMMAR,

AND

ALLEN'S MANUAL LATIN GRAMMAR.

THE publication of this edition of the Classics was suggested by the constantly increasing demand by teachers for an edition which, by judicious notes, would give to the student the assistance really necessary to render his study profitable, furnishing explanations of passages difficult of interpretation, of peculiarities of Syntax, &c., and yet would require him to make faithful use of his Grammar and Dictionary.

It is believed that this Classical Series needs only to be known to insure its very general use. The publishers claim for it peculiar merit, and beg leave to call attention to the following important particulars:

The purity of the text.

The clearness and conciseness of the
notes, and their adaptation to the
wants of Students.

The beauty of the type and paper.
The handsome style of binding.
The convenience of the shape and size.
The low price at which the volumes
are sold.

The preparation of the whole Series
is the original work of American
Scholars.

The text is not a mere reprint, but is based upon a careful and painstaking comparison of all the most improved editions, with constant reference to the authority of the best manuscripts.

No pains have been spared to make the notes accurate, clear, and helpful to the learner. Points of geography, history, mythology, and antiquities are explained in accordance with the views of the best German scholars.

We desire also to direct the attention of teachers to the advantages to be gained by the use of these books over those which give only "as much Latin as it is necessary to read in order to enter college." It is intended that the Series shall comprise complete editions of the classical authors usually read in our schools, and that the combined price of the several preparatory volumes of the Series shall not exceed the price of the incomplete works referred to. Teachers preparing students for college can thus have the privilege of selecting such portions of the different authors as they may desire the student to read, or as the particular college for which the student is fitting may require, with the advantage to the scholar of possessing the remaining portions of each author to read and refer to as time may permit or inclination dictate. The different authors, moreover, will be bound separately, in neat books, easy and convenient to handle, instead of being bound together in cumbersome volumes. These certainly are advantages which the practical teacher will appreciate.

The generous welcome given to these books, proves very conclusively that they are well adapted to the wants of the classroom. Already they have been adopted in every State in the Union, and the publishers have the proud satisfaction of stating that they are at this time the standard text-books in more than

One Thousand Schools,

and the number is daily increasing. Among these are many of the largest and most important classical institutions in the country.

The publishers desire to acknowledge their indebtedness to the teachers of Latin throughout the country who are using these books, for the high position that has been accorded to them. Grateful for the very flattering welcome they have received, we pledge ourselves that the subsequent volumes shall

in all respects equal those already issued, and that the entire

To those teachers who do not use them we suggest the consideration of two facts:

1. Large and permanent success follows only real merit. 2. Such success has been attained by these books.

And we are confident that if you will inquire into the merit which has insured this success, you will reach the same conclusion that hundreds of other teachers have done, and find that they are well worthy of the commendation bestowed upon them. The Series, when complete, will consist of
