BY THE REV. J. G. COOPER, A. M.
Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1855, by
CATHARINE COOPER, in the Clerk's Office of the District Court of the Southern District of New York.
New-York, July 6, 1815. An edition of the Works of Virgil, upon the plan adopted by the Rev. J. G. Cooper, I think preferable to those usually put into the hands of boys. His notes and explanations, so far as I have examined them, are both copious and judicious. Believing that classical literature will be pronfoled thereby, I do cheerfully recommend the work.

LEXINGTON, Ky. April 1, 1825. Having recently examined the Rev. J. G. Cooper's proposed edition of the Works of Virgil, i have no hesitation in giving my opinion, that the plan which he has pursued is excellent, and the execution highly creditable to his talents and scholarship. Such a work will greatly facilitate the study of the poet, on the part of the youthful learner. It will give him a correct idea of the meaning of the author in the more difficult passages; and by its copious notes upon ancient history, and mythology, will enable him to relish beauties that are now rarely perceived in the early course of classical instruction. I have no doubt but that its appearance will be welcomed by the intelligent and discerning, as a publication admirably adapted to enlist the feelings, and stimulate the applica. tion of yo'ith, in the elementary schools of our
country. GEORGE T. CUAPMAN, D. D. Professor of History, &c. &c. in Transylvania University, Ky,
