A Latin Grammar.


By Professor CHARLES E. BENNETT, Cornell University. 12mo, cloth, 282 pages. Price, 80 cents.

N this book the essential facts of Latin Grammar are presented within the smallest compass consistent with high scholarly standards. It covers not only the work of the preparatory school, but also that of the required courses in college and university. By omitting rare forms and syntactical usages found only in ante-classical and post-classical Latin, and by relegating to an Appendix theoretical and historical questions, it has been found possible to treat the subject with entire adequacy in the compass of 250 pages exclusive of Indexes. In the German schools, books of this scope fully meet the exacting demands of the entire gymnasial course, and the host of teachers who have tried Bennett's Grammar find that they are materially helped by the absence of the mass of useless and irrelevant matter which forms the bulk of the older grammars.

Appendix to Bennett's Latin Grammar.

For university work. 12mo, cloth, 246 pages. Price, 80 cents.


HE purpose of this book is to give such information regarding the history and development of the Latin language as experience has shown to be of service to advanced students.

The subjects treated are the Latin Alphabet, Pronunciation, Hidden Quantity, Accent, Orthography, The Latin Sounds, Inflections, Adverbs and Prepositions, and Syntax. Of these subjects, those of Hidden Quantity, Inflections, and Syntax receive special attention; and the results of recent investigation are set forth fully and clearly, but in compact form.

Latin Lessons.

By Professor CHARLES E. BENNETT, of Cornell University. 16mo, cloth, 191 pages. Price, 70 cents.


ROFESSOR BENNETT is a believer in the old-fashioned method of beginning Latin, that is, learning the forms first, learning them in order, and learning them once and for all. The Latin Lessons is a book that sends the beginner directly to the grammar for forms and rules, taking them up in their regular order. Complete sentences are found in the very first lesson, and easy stories are introduced as soon as the pupil has learned enough grammar, in the regular order, to read them. Teachers who believe in the method of "resolute, systematic, and sustained attack on declensions and conjugations” will find Professor Bennett's new book admirably suited to help them in their work.

A. L. K. Volkmann, Volkmann School, Boston, Mass.: I like Bennett's Latin Lessons very much. You are getting somewhere, and you know what you have got, and you get the whole thing, which is the main point.

The Foundations of Latin.

A book for Beginners. Revised Edition. By Professor C. E. BENNETT, of Cornell University. 12mo, cloth, 250 pages. Price, 90 cents.


HIS book presents the matter for the beginner in Latin in sixty chapters, the first thirty-five devoted almost entirely to inflections, the remaining twenty-five to syntax, both subjects being treated in the order in which they are usually found in the grammar. Such rules of syntax as are needed for reading and writing simple sentences are given in the earliest lessons, so that the pupil has constant drill on the forms while acquiring them; but the systematic study of general syntax is postponed till the pupil shall have mastered the forms. The book serves equally well as an introduction to Caesar or Nepos.

Dr. R. M. Jones, Penn Charter School, Philadelphia, Pa.: We have adopted Bennett's Foundations of Latin. It is the best book of its class.

George D. Bartlett, Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, N. Y.: I have used a great many introductory Latin books, and have found none so satisfactory as Bennett's Foundations of Latin.

Books I.-IV. Indicated quantities, Introduction, Notes, Vocabulary,
Illustrations, and colored Maps and Plans. Edited by Professor
CHARLES E. BENNETT, of Cornell University. 12mo, cloth, 352 pages.
Price, $1.00.

N his Cæsar, Professor Bennett has had constantly in mind the point of view and the needs of the elementary pupil. No pains, therefore, have been spared to make the Notes simple in style, clear in statement, and pertinent and interesting in content. Every real difficulty receives consideration and explanation, particular care being taken to indicate the course of the thought and the connection of ideas. Book II. has been annotated with especial fulness for the benefit of those teachers who prefer to begin with this book rather than with Book I.

In matters of grammar and syntax, the editor, while following the treatment and nomenclature of his own Latin Grammar, has also inserted references to the other Latin grammars in common An Introduction of thirty-one pages treats of Cæsar's life and of the Roman art of war as practised in his day.


Cicero's Orations.

Indicated quantities, full Introduction, Notes, Vocabulary, Illustrations, and two colored Maps. Edited by Professor CHARLES E. BENNETT. 12mo, cloth, 374 pages. Price, $1.00.


[ocr errors]

HIS edition includes seven Orations, the four Catilines, the
Manilian Law, Archias, and Marcellus.

The aim of the editor is not merely to help the pupil to a correct rendering of the text, sentence by sentence, but also to bring out the larger relations of thought which make these speeches masterpieces of the art of oratory. With this in mind, the Notes are intended to give a full historical outline of the circumstances of each oration, to keep the pupil in touch with the logic of the argument, and to give an adequate explanation of all points of Roman law or custom.

Virgil's Æneid: Books I-VI.

Edited by Professor CHARLES E. BENNETT, of Cornell University. With Introduction, Notes, Vocabulary, Illustrations, and Map. 12mo, cloth. Ready in January, 1905.

Latin Composition.

By Professor CHARLES E. BENNETT. 16mo, cloth, 172 pages. Price, 80 cents.


HIS book has been prepared with the conviction that the primary function of Latin Composition in secondary schools is to extend and strengthen the pupil's knowledge of Latin grammar. Accordingly, the lessons are devoted mainly to exercises in applying the principles of the various case and mood constructions recognized in our Latin Grammars. In order that the writing of continuous discourse may not be neglected, passages of simple English narrative, involving the principles covered in the previous exercises, are frequently introduced.

Grammatical references are to Bennett, Allen & Greenough, and Harkness.

The illustrative examples given at the beginning of each lesson have been drawn with great care from Latin literature — mainly from Cicero's speeches. The English sentences set for translation into Latin have also, in most cases, been suggested by passages occurring in the works of classical authors.

The Quantitative Reading of Latin Poetry.


By Professor CHARLES E. BENNETT. 12mo, paper, 49 pages. Price, 25 cents.

ELIEVING that a more thorough study of the oral reading of Latin Poetry may prove a source of pleasure and profit, not only to the pupils but also to many teachers of the language, Professor Bennett has prepared this little monograph emphasizing the importance of the knowledge of quantities as well as of rhythm.
