including Accidence, Irregular Verbs, and Principles of Derivation and Composition; adapted to the System of Crude Forms. By J.G.GREENWOOD, Principal of Owens College, Manchester. Fourth Edition. Crown 8vo. 55. 6d. This Grammar is intended to do for Greek what the Grammars of Key and others have done for Latin. Until this work was published, no Greck Grammar had appeared based on the system of crude forms, though the system is perhaps still better adapted to Greek than to Latin.

Mayor John E. B.)-FIRST GREEK READER. Edited

after Karl HALM, with Corrections and large Additions by JOHN E. B. MAYOR, M.A., Fellow and Classical Lecturer of St. John's

College, Cambridge. Third Edition, revised. Fcap. 8vo. 45. 6d. A selection of short passages, serving to illustrate especially the Greek Accidence. A good deal of syntax is incidentally taught, and Madvig and other books are cited, for the use of masters : but no learner is expected to know more of syntax than is contained in the Notes and Vocabulary. A preface To the Reader,not only explains the aim and method of the volume, but also deals with classical instruction generally. The extracts are uniformly in the Attic dialect. This book may be used in connection with Mayor's Greek for Beginners.” “ After a careful examination we are inclined to consider this volume unrivalled in the hold which its pithy sentences are likely to take on the memory, and for the amount of true scholarship embodied in the annotations.EDUCATIONAL TIMES.

Mayor (Joseph B.)—GREEK FOR BEGINNERS. By the

Rev. J. B. MAYOR, M.A., Professor of Classical Literature in
King's College, London. Part I., with Vocabulary, is. 6d. Parts
II. and III., with Vocabulary and Index, 3s. 6d., complete in one

vol. Fourth Edition. Fcap. 8vo. cloth, 4s. 6d. The distinctive method of this book consists in building up a boy's knowledge of Greek upon the foundation of his knowledge of English and Latin, instead of trusting everything to the unassisted memory. Greek words have been used in the earlier part of the book except such as have connections either in English or Latin. Each step leads naturally on to its successor ; grammatical forms and rules are at once applied in a series of graduated exercises, accompanied by ample vocabularies. Thus the book serves as Grammar, Exercise book, and Vocabulary. The ordinary ten declensions are reduced to three, which correspond to the first three in Latin ; and the system of stems is adopted. A general Vocabulary, and Index of Greek words, completes the work. We know of no book of the same scope so complete in itself, or so weil calculated to inake the study of Greek interesting at the very commencement.— STANDARD. Peile (John, M.A.)—AN INTRODUCTION TO GREEK

AND LATIN ETYMOLOGY. By John PEILE, M.A., Fellow and Assistant Tutor of Christ's College, Cambridge, formerly Teacher of Sanskrit in the University of Cambridge. New and Revised Edition. Crown 8vo. Ios. 6d. These Philological Lectures are the result of Notes made during the author's reading for several years. These Notes were put into the shape of Lectures, delivered at Christ's College, as one set in the Intercollegiate" list. They are now printed with some additions and modifications. The book may be accepted as a very valuable contribution to the science of language."-SATURDAY REVIEW. Plato.--THE REPUBLIC OF PLATO. Translated into English,

with an Analysis and Notes, by J. LL. DAVIES, M. A., and D. J. VAUGHAN, M.A. Third Edition, with Vignette Portraits of Plato and Socrates, engraved by JEENS from an Antique Gem. 18mo. 45. 6d. An introductory notice supplies some account of the life of Plato, and the translation is preceded by an elaborate analysis. The translators nave,in the judgment of the SATURDAY REVIEW, produced a book which any reader, whether acquainted with the original or not, can peruse with pleasure as well as profit.Plautus (Ramsay).—THE MOSTELLARIA OF PLAU.

TUS. With Notes Critical and Explanatory, Prolegomena, and
Excursus. By WILLIAM RAMSAY, M.A., formerly Professor of
Humanity in the University of Glasgow. Edited by Professor
GEORGE G. RAMSAY, M.A., of the University of Glasgow.
8vo. 145.

The fruits of that exhaustive research and that ripe and well-digested scholarship which its author brought to bear upon everything that he undertook are visible throughout. It is furnished with a complete apparatus of prolegomena, notes, and excursus; and for the use of veteran scholars it probably leaves nothing to be desired.”—PALL MALL GAZETTE. Potts (Alex. W., M.A. HINTS TOWARDS LATIN

PROSE COMPOSITION. By ALEX. W. Potts, M.A., late
Fellow of St. John's College, Cambridge; Assistant Master in
Rugby School ; and Head Master of the Fettes College, Edinburgh.

Third Edition, enlarged. Extra fcap. 8vo. cloth. 35. An attempt is here made to give students, after they have mastered ordinary syntactical rules, some idea of the characteristics of Latin Prose and the means to be employed to reproduce them. Some notion of the treatment of the subject may be gathered from the Contents.' CHAP. I.-Characteristics of Classical Lalin, Hints on turning English into Latin ; CHAP. II.--Arrangement of Words in a Sentence ; CHAP. III.- Unity in Latin Prose, Subject and Object ; CHAP. IV.-On the Period in Latin Prose; CHAP. V.--On the position of the Relative and Relative Clauses. The LOBE characterises it as an admirable little book which teachers of Latin will find of very great service.Roby.--A GRAMMAR OF THE LATIN LANGUAGE, from

Plautus to Suetonius. By H. J. ROBY, M.A., late Fellow of St.
John's College, Cambridge. Part I. containing :--Book I. Sounds.
Book II. Inflexions. Book III. Word-formation. Appendices.

Second Edition. Crown 8vo. 8s. 6d. This work is the result of an independent and careful study of the writers of the strictly classical period, the period, embraced between the time of Plautus and that of Suetonius. The author's aim has been to give the facts of the language in as few words as possible. This is a Grammar strictly of the Latin language ; not a Universal Grammar illustrated from Latin, nor the Latin section of a Comparative Grammar of the IndoEuropean languages, nor a Grammar of the group of Italian dialects, of which Latin is one. It will be found that the arrangement of the book and the treatment of the various divisions differ in many respects from those of previous grammars. Mr. Roby has given special prominence to the treatment of Sounds and Word-formation ; and in the First Book he has done much towards settling a discussion which is at present largely engaging the attention of scholars, viz., the pronunciation of the classical languages. The book is marked by the clear and practised insight of a master in his art. It is a book that would do honour to any country."-ATHENÆUM.

INTO ENGLISH. By A. J. CHURCH, M.A., and W. J. BRODRIBB, M.A. With Notes and a Map. New and Cheaper Edition. Crown 8vo. 6s. The translators have endeavoured to adhere as closely to the original as was thought consistent with a proper observance of English idiom. At the same time, it has been their aim to reproduce the precise expressions of the author. The campaign of Civilis is elucidated in a note of some length, which is illustrated by a map, containing the names of places and of tribes occurring in the work. There is also a complete account of the Roman army as it was constituted in the time of Tacitus. This work is characterised by the SPECTATOR as a scholarly and faithful translation.THE AGRICOLA AND GERMANIA OF TACITUS. A Revised
