Recently Adopted for Virginia Schools.

HESE books constitute the most attractive collection of fascinating reading for children that

has ever been published. They are not only interesting and instructive, but they are good literature as well. They cultivate the taste of the pupil and are thus invaluable as supplementary reading. The books are in unitorm binding, and in illustration and typography are unrivaled.

Gildersleeve-Lodge Latin Books

Cicero's Orations.

Prepared for the GILDERSLEEVE-LODGE LATIN SERIES by ROBERT W. TUNSTALL, the long-time Principal of Norfolk Academy, Norfolk, Va. The work of a teacher of long experience includes only what is essential to its scope as a college-preparatory text-book. It is a teacher’s and pupil's book, possessing the qualities necessary to make it thoroughly teachable.

The text of each speech has been broken into paragraphs, and a running argument showing the trend of the Latin inserted at the breaks. This will enable the average pupil of fifteen or sixteen to translate the text with intelligence and interest.

The book is graded. The speeches against Catiline, for example, are treated in a more elementary manner than any of the others. In the commentary on these speeches, occasional hints are given on the difficult art of translation. The Ninth Philippic has been added as material for practice in sighttranslation.

The copious vocabulary is especially helpful in the use of English synonyms. xxxiv + 585 pages. Price, $1.20.

Selections From Ovid with Introduction, Notes and Vocabulary, is designed primarily to serve as an introduction to Latin poetry, for which Ovid seems to be peculiarly well adapted because his style is comparatively easy and his subject matter interesting.

This edition is the work of an able scholar and experienced teacher, JAMES N. ANDERSON, M. A., author of “On the Sources of Ovid's Heroides.” In the Commentary the editor has endeavored to give all the information necessary to an intelligent reading of the text, without the addition of extraneous matter unsuitable for those students for whom the book is intended.

The Proverbs and Short Selections at the close of the text have been added, not only for their own intrinsic merit, but also to afford material for sight translation where the teacher may tind it desirable.

The vocabulary is full. x + 258 pages. Price, 75 cents.

Gildersleeve's Latin Grammar.

Edition of 1894. Revised and enlarged by Prof. Basil L. Gildersleeve, of Johns Hopkins University, and Prof. Gonzalez Lodge, of Bryn Mawr College. x + 550 pages. Price $1.20.

This edition of the Grammar has been received with warmest approval and highest appreciation of leading classical educators of this country and of Europe.

“I am confident that, as a whole, it is a marked advance “Indispensable to every Latinist who teaches in America." one very predecessor, and the best guide, now accessible to -Chas. EDWARD Bishop, College of William and Mary, students, to a sound acquaintance with the language.”- Va. CHARLTON T. Lewis, New York, author of Latin Lexicons.

“For school and college use, the new Gildersleeve's Latin “I regard it as the most scholarly, and in many respects, Grammar, in point of fulness, accuracy and convenience, the most satisfactory Latin Grammar that has ever appeared rivals, if it does not surpass, all Latin Grammars with which in the English language.”-HARRY THURSTON PECK, Ph. D., I am acquainted.”—J. P. POSTGATE, Fellow of Trinity ColL. H. D., Prof. of Latin, Columbia University, New York. lege, Cambridge, England.

Gildersleeve's Latin Grammar (School Edition). By Prof. Basil L. Gildersleeve and Professor Gonzalez Lodge. This manual has been prepared in response to the demand for a briefer Latin Grammar based on the Gildersleeve-Lodge work of 1891. Historical detail and grammatical exposition intended for advanced students have been mainly omitted, and the phraseology has been simplified whenever it was possible without a sacrifice of scientific exactness.

The book has about three-fifths as many pages as the larger Grammar, but it has not been abridged to a skeleton. It is still suited to serve the average student throughout his course in school and college. Much attention has been paid to the typography. The section numbers are the same as in the Irager grammar. This facilitates reference to either grammar. vi + 330 pages. Price 80 cents.

Also, just issued, LATIN COMPOSITION, by Professors Gildersleeve and Lodge, designed for the use of Freshmen at College, or the highest classes of preparatory schools. 192 pages. Price, 75 cents.

Other books in preparation. Correspondence invited.
