About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1906, this textbook's principal aim is to give 'the facts of the language as they appear in the accepted models of Classical Latin'. Predominantly written for school students, this highly informative book sets out to educate the grammar of this classical language - the term 'classical' here meant as the 'artificial literacy dialect of which Cicero and Caesar are the recognised exponents in prose, Vergil, Ovid and Horace in poetry'. Chapters are detailed and broad in scope; chapter titles include, 'Phonology', 'Accidence' and 'Prosody'. Notably, 'Accidence and syntax are treated separately, yet, where it seemed convenient, e.g. with the impersonal verbs, the construction of certain words has been given at the same time as their forms and inflexions'. An index of verbs is included for reference. Intended as a reliable and clear introduction, this book will be of great value to anyone with an interest in Latin.
