PREFACE.

The following Work is founded on the two first portions of the LATEINISCHES ELEMENTARBUCH,' by Professors Jacobs and Döring.

The Chapters on Roman History are considerably easier than the rest of the Work, and should be read through first. They are taken, with considerable alterations, from Eutropius. The Chapters on Grecian, Sicilian, and Persian History, were selected by Jacobs from Justin and Cornelius Nepos, the text being frequently altered with great judgement to suit the purpose for which the selection was made. I have used the same liberty now and then myself, and also added Chapters from Velleius Paterculus and Turselline. Besides this, I have adopted a more nearly chronological arrangement, and substituted some extracts from Curtius for corresponding passages from Justin. Many of Jacobs's Chapters have been omitted; and many new ones added.
