This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you.

TisB end pfopoted in the pr^Muntioa of this irolume mm io 
pfesMit |o the Public a hock of aelectioiu from the Germen 
Classica, moie progroMive in the arrangement of its matterv 
and more inviting to.the firit attempts of the learner than nmi- 
lar woricfl heretolbre in use. It proceeded from a oonWction 
that a Reader of anj^ and espedallj of a modem language 
studied on the method of OUendorfi^ should in some measure 
be made a representatiTe of the literature of that language ; 
both for the purpose of relieying the pu{Hl from the peipetnal 
repetiti(»i of exercises and conversational, phrases bj afibrding 
him an opportunity of applying his knowledge d the Grammar 
in another direction, and especially for the purpose of giving 
him an early introductioa to those Authors whose woriu he is 
afterwards expected to read, and without which, his attain- 
ments in the language will ever be imperfect. It should, in 
the second place, be complete in itself— pre-supposing nothing 
but the Grammar, and requiring no other exponent of its 
kneaning but itself and an intelligent learner. 

The Editor is aware that Ollendorff's method does not neces- 
sarily require a reading book ; and that, if in strict adherence 
to its principle, the pi^il has once thoroughly mastered the 
entire bode, he may confidently begin the reading of any one 
of the easier, authors, with no other assistance save his dic- 
tionary and his master. It is, however, not unfiequently 
the case, that the pupil wishes only to read the language, 
and that as soon as possible, without going over the entbe 
ground of the Method. And indeed it is the cmiviction at 
£kih Editor^ resulting from j)er8onal experience as an instructor, 


that a judicious selection of reading pieces placed in the 
hands of beginners as soon as thej have acquired a sufficient 
fikmiliarity with the^ inflection of the verb, will, in every case, 
greatly enhance their interest and zeal. 

The book, therefore^ is designed to be put into the hands 
of learners almost simultaneously with the Grammar. In 
the first section several pieces are analyzed, and the ma- 
terials necessary for the tennslation of all of them, are given 
at the bottom of the page. In the second section, the use 
of the voeabnkuy eonmeiices, but the pieces are still i^ort 
and easy, the irregidar and compound verbs are given, attd 
diffieuU or idiomatic passages expfee^wd or rendered. In the 
thirdi fiynith and Mh sections, the pieces increase m length 
and difficult, the references to the Gimnunar diminish, and 
many of the notes assume a historical character. 

la legaid to the subject-malter of the book, care has b6en 
taken to adopt only sticli pieces as Are of acknowledged excel. 
knoe and as eoddwidi safety be read with youth of both sexes 
eHher in classes at school or in private. The variety in the 
selection will stifte every one who biU cursorily glances at the 
book. Indeed, variety of nutter to exoite ^ cariosity and sus- 
tain the mterest of tlie learner, together with a rigorous gradation 
feom the easier to the more difficult, are the two principal 
pdato aimed at in the anttngement of ^be pieces — points 
which were deemed <^ sufficient importance to more than 
counterfaahoioe aU the advantages and pleasiue to be deiived 
from another and more scientific arrangemCTrt. 

Extncts feom the drama have not been admitted, because, if 
kng, they would have swelled the ekzB of the book to an iindne 
extent; if short, they would, like isolated limbs of statues, how- 
ever symmetrical and beautiful in themselves, be stiU unintelH- 
gible aside from their connection with the whole. 

Among the poetical pieces, special prominence has been as- 
signed to the Ballad, this being a species of poetry in which the 
greatest of German poets have eagerly striven for the prize, and 
to which many of their noblest creations belong. In the histo- 
riealnotes to these ballads free use has been made of the excel- 

lent oommentaries d Groetziiiger and Schmidty and in Goethe's 
Novelle, on page 194, the inimitable translation alluded to in the 
introductoiy note has been followed in the renderings wherever 
it was found convenient. 

The labour of preparing a vocabidaiy to such a varietjr of 
matter greatly exceeded all previous calculation, and has been 
the cause oi considerable delaj in the publication of the boolt. 
A Yocabulaiy was deemed necessary, because, in the absence 
of one, the beginner in resorting to a small dictionaiy would 
fiul to find many of the words— especially compounds and idiom- 
atic expressions, and a large one would rather embarrass than 
assist him. The irregular verbs being in the largest portion 
<^the book always given at the bottom of the page, it was at 
first deemed superfluous to repeat their principal parts in the 
vocabulary. This design was afterwards abandoned, and the 
impei&ct and perfect participle are added to the infinitive of ir- 
regular verbs in all the letters of the alphabet except the first. 
In irregular and inseparable compounds thepaiticip^ is repre- 
sented in connection with the principal parts, but where the 
compound is separaUe the imperfect and participle of the 
simple verb alone are given. It is hoped that in a subsequent 
edition an opportunity will be affi>rded of reducing the vocabu- 
lary to perfect uniformity. 

The orthography of the Reader is essentially die same widi 
that of the Grammar. 

The Editor now submits the book to the public, with the ccm- 
sciousness of having earnestly striven to solve the most difficult 
problem of a Reader and with the hope that it may meet the ex- 
pectations of the numerous friends of the Grammar to which it 
is adapted.

X The Chftteau de Bonconrt, in Champagne, was the old fiunily midenee 
of the poet's ancestors, where he was horn in 1781. When the ReTolution 
broke out, the castle was assailed and razed to the ground, and the impoYer- 
ished fiuBily, which had ranked among the very first in France, was obUged 
to flee. Chamisso was brought to Germany at the age of nine, where he 
spent the greater part of his life, and attained to considerable eminence as a 
poet. No one, acquainted with the history of its author, can read this 
poem without being touched by the sweetness and beauty of its sentiments.

^ MiGNON IB one of the most interesting characters in Goethe's Wyihdm 
Meuter. In her earliest childhood she was secretly carried off from her 
home in Italy by a company of strolling jugglers, and trained to perform 
feats on the rope, &c. MeUter, who one day happened to witness the per- 
formances of this troop, during which the child was unmercifnlly abused* 
obtained possession of her, and became her protector. One morning be 
was surprised to find her before his door, singing this song to a cithern^ 
which accidentally had fallen into her hands. " On finishing her song for 
the second time, she stood silent for a moment, looked keenly at Wilhelm, 
and asked him.: 'Know'st thou the land 1' *It must be Italy,' said Wil- 
helm (the history of the child was as yet a m3rBtery to him) ; ' where didst 
thou get the little songi' 'Italy!' said Mignon, with an earnest air; 'if 
thou go to Italy, take me along with thee, for I am too cold here.' ' Hass 
tfaoQ been there already, little dear ! ' said Wilhelm. But the child was 
■ilent, and nothing more could be got out of her." — Meuter'a Lehrjahre^ 
book iii. chap. 1st. ' For hlfi^tn, glfi^en, lit^tn. So also in the second 
stanza {le|tt unb fe^n for fle^en unb fe^ett. As has already been remarked, 
such elisions of the e are very frequent, especially in poetry. ' ©till and 
$od^ here adverbs ; they may, however, better be rendered as adjectives : 
where the modest {quiet) myrtle and the lofty laurel stands. * The original 
signification of this word is tod/; it is, however, often employed to indicate 
a nipporiticn, a doubt, or a queetUm, and then'it is usually rendered by per* 
hope or Ituppose ; but often the delicate shade of meaning which it impart!

diap. ii. ' Saufttt, to hie, run. s T^e boy (i. e. the page) came (bae/i to 
announce the sitter). The sentences in this ballad are very concise and 
elliptical. The poet gives us onl^ the general outlines of the event, and 
leaves the rest to be supplied by the reader's own imagination. This bold- 
ness of transition from one thought to another, and brevity of expression, 
constitute the prominent characteristics of ballad-style generally. * ^txtius

This and the following three Wlix^txt (ptUM, ttorUa) are here inaerted for 
the purpose of familiarizing the student with the simple language of lifb. 
The .$ttnber« unb «gai20mSr<i^tn of the Brothers (Trtmm, from which they 
are selected, are traditionary tales (many of them evidently of a very ancient 
date) orally transmitted from generation to generation, and first collected 
and published in 1812^1814. Though the ofl&pring of a capricious imagi- 
nation, yet they posses»4ll the Jieanty and freshness of life itself, and never 
fail to produce interegl and^delight. The editors (^if^elm unb 3a!ob 
®rimm) are two scholars, who, in a critical knowledge of the German lan- 
guage in all its modificanons and dialects, and its relation to kindred lan- 
guages, have not their equals. — To one who wishes to master conversational 
German, no book so simple in construction, so rich in idioms, juid at the 
same time so amusing in its matter, could be recommended.

gale and an almost imperceptible earthquake, the shore at Gottlieben (a 
plaoe in the canton of Thnrgovia) for a distance of three leagues, together 
with four houses, was swallowed up by the lake (of Constance). 0*116

lowi: Arion, a native of Methymna, in Letboi, was the most eminent mui- 
dan and lyric poet of his day. After having sojourned for a long time at 
the court of Periander, tyrant of Corinth, his warm friend and patron, he 
felt desirous of visiting Italy and Sicily. He accordingly went to these 
countries, contrary to the advice of his friend, and, after amassing great 
wealth, he embarked again at Tarentdm for home in a Corinthian ship. 
The mariners, allured by his riches, determined his destruction, giving him 
jKie alternative either of killing himself on board and then enjoying the 
benefit of a burial on shore, or of plunging into the sea immediately. He 
chose the latter, arrayed himself in his richest attire, and, af^r performing 
the so-called Orthian strain, he took the fatal leap. But a dolphin, charmed 
by his music, took him on his back and conveyed him safely to Tssnarus, &e. 
Herodotus says, that Periander put the mariners to death. The poet deems 
banishment among barbarians, where " naught beautiful would ever charm 
their souls," the severest punishment that could be inflicted on them.

1 Like most poems of the kind, this ballad is founded on, or rather oeeft- 
sioned by, a historical event. Tieck in his „®affcrmenfc^/ Kircher in bii 
^Untenrbifc^e ^tW (quoted by Gdtzinger),^and Alexander ab Alexandre in 
his "Dies genUUes" (quoted by Sclimidt),make mention of a Nicolas, sumamed 
the Fish, who, from a singular constitution of his nature, fomid the watery 
element so congenial, nay, necessary to his existence, that he could hardly 
live for a day without being in the sea. Many wonderful incidents are re- 
corded of him, such as swimming from one island to another (in the Medi- 
terranean) on an errand of carrying letters, swimming 5(X) stadia in a heavy 
gale, hailing and stopping with mariners on the high sea, dec dec This 
diving feat is said to have occurred on some great festival. The king is 
Frederick of Naples and Sicily, about A. D. 1500, who, curious to become 
acquainted with the mysterious depths of Charybdis, prevailed on Nicolas 
to explore it. The historical diver, in every other respect quite an ordinary 
man, is remarkable only for his extraordinary skill, which was natural to him ; 
he dives, moreover, from purely selfish motives, for the gold th|it is ofiered 
hira, and perishes without our sympathy. Schiller's hero, on the other hand, 
is one of the retinue of the king, adorned with all the ornaments of youth, 
of beauty, of a generous ambition, and undaunted I'ourage, in a word, he 
is an ideetl, a poetical character, and as such addresses our warmest sympa- 
thies and admiration. The king's daughter, as the prize of the second 
plunge, is also purely an addition of the poet. Thus we see, that in pro- 
ducing this admirable poem, the author has exercised that unquestionable 
prerogative of every true artist, in handling materials derived from history 
or tradition, namely, to add or reject wherever and whatever his design 
may require him to add or reject; thus making the event merely the basis 
on which he rears an ideal structure, perfect as a whole and harmonious in 
all its parts. Bulwer is the author of a very spirited English version of 
this poem, from which several passages (distinguished by quotation marks) 
are given in the notes. ^ MitUx^mann obcr JtnapV, be he knight or equire,

of the whirlpool has been greatly admired, and is so much the more re- 
markable, as Schiller had never seen any real phenomenon of the kind, not 
even a waterfall. It reminds us of Homer's spirited delineation of Charyb- 
dis (Odyssey, book xii., v. 234-243), which the poet had made an object of 
special study, and to which he expresses his indebtedness. So vivid and 
truthful is this conception, that Goethe, on observing the Falls of the Rhine, 
c^led them a verification of the words : ^unb eS x»<Att tinb fiebet unb braufet ^ 
unb |tf(i^t, and it bubbles and seethes, and it hisses and roars." ^' The rest 
of this stanza is rendered by Bulwer thus : " and the tpray qfUs wrath to the

^ The original event, which forms the basis of. this poem, is recorded in 
the annals of the Order of Malta, by its two most prominent historians, 
Bosio and Vertot d'Aubceuf. Schiller has, on the whole, made but little 
alteration in the historical narrative, except that, no doubt for ^he sake of 
preserving the unity of the scene, he makes the interval between the 
punishment and the pardon but momentary, whereas really the knight was 
degraded from his order and sentenced to imprisonment, and pardoned sub- 
sequently only at the urgent intercession of his brother-kniglits. The evi- 
dent aim of the poet is to give us a picture of the spirit and character of 
the earlier Christian chivalry, in which heroic valour was blended with, 
nay made subordinate to, humility and a childlike, unconditional obedience 
to law. That this is the leading idea of the piece, may be seen from the fact, 
that the description of the fight is introduced only by way of episode, and that 
the relation of grand master, as head and representative of the order, to an 
individual and culpable member of the same, moreover, the humiliating de- 
gradation of the latter and his final pardon, form, as it were, the foreground 
of the picture. — The grand master's name was Helion de Villeneuve, who 
occupied this post from 1323 to 1346 ; that of the hero, Dieudonn^ de Gozon, 
who, after the decease of his stern master, was elected in his stead. After 
his death, the words " Draconis Extinctor" were inscribed on his tomb, and 
the head of the monster was placed over the city gate, where it could be seen for 
ages afterwards. The Knights of the Order of St. John the Baptist, also called

^ ^itbs unb St^etngraf was the title of the Counts of Hundsriick in tlio 
north of Germany. The legend of the wild huntsman and of the " raging 
host " (bed n}utt)enben .l^eered) is of a very ancient date, and Grimm in hit 


I)cutf(^e 'iSl\)t\)oio^ii" (German Mythology) page 95, and pages 515, 516, 
517, and 518, has shown, that it originated lung before the introduction of 
Christianity. The ancient German, like the ancient Greek, or the Indian 
savage, was fond of transferring his own occupations and mode of life to 
bin divinities, and hence the rumbling of the awfully fearful forest, when 
njjtMtAH by a storm, was to him the furious chase of Wodan or Wuctaw,

his chief divinity. After the introduction of Christianity, the ancient deities 
were converted into evil beings, and thus ^oban'S «geer (Wodan'i hott) be- 
came tofit^cnbel ^ttc (raging, mad host), consisting of goblins and maiignaot 
demons. The story afterwards received its moral aspect by a very natural 
attempt to account for the cause of this wonderful (alleged) phenomenon, so 
that the wild huntsman finally came to be regarded as a man doomed by 
heaven to the perpetual hardships of the chase until the day of judgment, 
to atone for his heavy ofiences against the laws of God and man. The poet 
has closely followed the general account; only the appellation "Wild and 
Rhinegrave" and of course the general arrangement of the plot are his 
own. In speaking of Burger, it is here in place to remark, that he is the 
father of the German ballad, and that he has been so successful' in this 
species of poetry, that none of his followers or imitators have approximated 
so closely to the spirit and popular tone of the ancient English ballad, as he 
has. 'Percy's " Reliques" were his model from which he reproduced many 
pieces, and by which he tested his own. ^ 3nS i^om fto^txt, to Uoio, temd 
the {bugle) horn, a ®tur)t t^m na($ bet Xxo% the ffmmg icf serf a) folhuM 
(lit phmgea after) him. * Biirger is very foncf^of coining words, which by 
their very sound express the thing he wishes to represent; thus {liffen is 
made frtMU flaffen by the simple change of a vowel, and means about the 
same thing, namely, the clatter and yelping of the party, particularly of the 
dogs : loudly it yelps and clatters, freed from leashes ; JTo^^el is the chain 
and two collars, by means of which a couple of dogs are fastened together* 
* Another instance in illustration of the last remark ; the word is simply an 
emphatic tafd^ : with brisk speed athwart (quer uber'n) the cross-way f^ go.

^ Reimard the fox is the name of an ApoI<^e or Comi)c Epos, originally 
written in the Low-German, and at one time extensively known, not only 
throughout Germany, but also, in vernacular versions, throughout France 
and England. There are several German translations of it, among which 
Goethe's in hexameters and Soltau's in doggrel are prominent- The extract 
here given is from book ii , and treats of Bruin the bear's reception at 
nephew Reynard's castle Malepartus. The substance of the first book is as 
follows : One Whitsuntide, King Noble, the lion, was sitting in solemn court, 
surrounded by the chief vassals of his crown from all parts of the land. 
Charges, numerous and heavy, were forthwith preferred against Re3mard, 
the arch-knave, who cunningly had stayed away. Hinze the cat, Lampe 
the hare, Isegrim the wolf, and Chanticleer the cock, each with his pecu- 
liar eloquence presented his complaints to the king — one seeking redress for 
violence done to his person, another claiming satisfaction for an outrage 
on his honour, and a third demanding revenge on the viUain for wilfully 
murdering his relatives and children "with intent to eat " The indignant 
king is determined to put a stop to this, and Sorthwith despatches Bruin, 
the bear, an uncle of Reynard's, to summon the criminal to court. His 
arrival at Malepartus and the success of his mission are found in the frag- 
ment- ' Genitive absolute, with proud mind, haughtily. ' Supply i)<it, had 
crossed it. ^ (Selbfl no(^ rXaged gU9or, as recently as the day before^ or, it wa»

A company of travellers on foot, among whom was young Henry, the hero 
of the piece, bad been attentively listening to an aged miner, one of the par^

account of his past life, and now goes on to conclude his story by an equally

^ The yonng princess, escorted by Honorio, her equery and page, is just re- 
turning from an horseback excursion to the ruins of an ancient family castle. . 
Her prince'Unde, who had been one of the smalt party, had just left them 
and hastened back to the city to aid in the extinction of a fire, which had 
broken out right in the midst of the market-place (where just then afiur was 
holding), and which threatened ruin to the entire city. The first part of 
the NoveUe consists of a description of the preparations for a chase which the 
prince, attended by a numerous hunting-train, was about to undertake — of 
the departure of the party — of the occupations of the princess at home, and 
of the motives which induced her to visit the ruins. The ruins themselyes 
are also described at length, both as sketched by the painter and as actually 
seen by the princess and her escort. A most masterly translation of the en- 
tiie piece may be found in Fraser's Magazine, Vol. vi. No. xxxiy., 1832 ; and 
also in Carlyle's Miscellaneous Essays. — G&schel in his lecture on this NoveUe 
(Unter^aUtttt^en |nr <B^x\t>ttnn% ©(t^T^er ^ic^t^ uttb ^enhoeife, 2tct SBanb, 
<Settt 235), conceives the aim of the poet to be to show forth the power and 
victory of the True, the Beautiful, and the Good over everythii^ which sets 
itself up in hostile opposition to them ; the key-note or text of the whole being 
expressed in the concluding verse . *' So have tamed and fimdy iron'd, to a 
poor child's feeble knee, him, the forest's lordly tyrant. Song and Piety*"

had passed through the city, right over the crowded market-fdace, where 
among other curiosities, the frightful pictures of wild beasts then exhibited^

^ This and the last two pieces are inserted for the purpose of giving tha 
learner of maturer mind a specimen or two of the philosophical style of the 
Germans. The extmcts from Kant are perhaps the only passages in all his 
works that approximate at all to eloquence. Always cool, deliberate, sub- 
^, logical even to rigour, and clear, too, except where obscurity arises 
from a natural imbecility in the use of language — ^he calmly pursues his 
analysis of the intellectual and moral constitution of man, incapable of 
being moved by aught around him or within him, save by the contemplation 
of the " starry heavens above us and the moral ]aW within us." ' Fichte, on 
the other hand, is always bold, fiery, and eloquent. The extract is charao-

" Arnold*1b Grkbk and Latin Skribs.— The publication of this valuable collect ion of cihi 
sieal school books may be regarded as the presage of berter things in respect to the mode of teach 
ing and acquiring languages. Heretofore boys have been condemned to the drudgery of goinf 
•ver Latin and Greelc Grammar without the remotest conception of the value of what thoy were 
learning, and every day hecomioff more and more disgust<«d with the dry and unmeaning tosii; 
but now, by Mr. Arnold's admirable method— subxtantially the same wilh that of Oilondorfl--the 
moment they take up the study of Latin or Greek, they begin to leani sentences, to acquire ideas 
lo see how the Romans and Greeks expressed themselves, how their mode of expression differea 
from ours, and by degrees they lay up a stock of knowledge which is utterly astonish :ng to those 
irho have dragged on month after month in the old-fashioned, dry, and tedious way of learning 

** Mr. Arnold, in fact, has had the good sense to adopt the system of nature. A child learns his 
own language by imitating what he hears, and conatantiy rqteating it till it is fastened in the 
memory ; in the same way Mr. A. pots the pupil immediately to work at Exercises in Latin and 
Cheek, involving the elementary principles of the language— words are supplied— the mode of 
{Kitting them together is told the pupil — he is shown how the ancients expressed their ideas ; simI 
llvsn, by repeating these things again and again— -zter urn iterurnqHt-AUa docile pupil has then 
injeiibly impressed upon his memory and rooted in his understanding.

The plan pursued in teaching the French is substantially the same with that developed ia 
ill* German Method. Avoiding the exclusively didactic character of the older treatises on th« 
one hand, and the tedious prolixity of detail which encumbors modern aystems on the other, Oi- 
iendorfl^ combines and thoroughly teaches at once both the theory and practice of the langiiag*. 
The student who pursues his method will therefore be relieved from the apprehension of either 
Ibigelting his rules before practice has srouoded him in their principles, or of learning sonteneee 
by rote which he cannot anulyae. Speaking and writing Pronch. which tn other sysiems is de- 
layed until thn learner is presumed lo be nianter of Etymology and Syntax, and cunsequeiilly ia 
■eldom acquired, by this method is commenced with the first lesson, continued throughout, and 
made the efiiciont means of acquiring almiist imperceptibly, a tiiurough knowledge of grammar ; 
and this without diverting the learner's attention for a moment from the language iuelf, witif 
irhich he is naturally most desirous of becoming familiar. 

The text of Ollendiirff, rnrefully revi.-»ed and corrected, is privpn in the present edition without

The Preface of the Author (here inserted) explains more fully the nature of the eompilatloa. 

author's PREFACE. 
'* No French Pronouncing Dictionary having as yet appeared in the English field of Freneh 
Education, the public aie now presented with one, the nature and compass of which will give aa 
Mea of the numerous and laborious investigations made by the Author, to render the preaeM 
work useful and acceptable. 

*' It is now upwards of six years since this work was undertaken, and the resolution of brivf 
Ing 11 to li^ht, aroRB from a diversity of opinion in Pronunciation, which he discovered long ag* 
ra the various Dictionaries and Grammars made use of by him in preparing his former course ol 
Lectuies on French and English Comparative Philology. 

** In the course of his labors, had the Author found but little difference among Frenclyprritan, 
probably no rriticism would have appeared in the present woik ; but as he went along* hn atten- 
tion was anested by so many opposite views in the mode of sounding letters and words, that 
■othing short of a fuH investigation could satisfy him. The result of his investigations is em' 
bodied in the Dictionarv, and hence the origin of the critical remarksVith which it abounds: the 
nature and extent of which, of themselves, would form a volume conveying much solid instruo- 
tion, as well as ofTerini^ a sad picture of the uncertainties of French Pronunciation, of which 
nine-tenths perhaps of the Author's countrymen are not aware. Even upon the mere sounds of 
«M, tnere are many conflicting opinions, and the vacillating pen of Laudais, the last writer upoa - 
Parisian pronunciation, by whom oi is represented sometimes by oo, and sometimes by 0, has itt- 
oreased the perplexity in no small degrne. 

"The method employed by the Author for representing the sounds of words, is intended to 
raoet the English eye ; and he has been careful to make use of none but genuine French letters, 
that the reader may not be deceived, norindu«:ed to follow a vicious system of articulation. 

*' As to the p'-onunciation of Foreign Historical and Geographical names, it is laid down ia 
the same manA«v. a« </ a Frenchman at Pans were reading aloud ; ii\ this case nothing «Miuid be 
left to him but to Frenchify every proper name, with the exception of a few livine Authors. 

"In ending this part of 'he Preface, it is of impoitance to observe that no syllable in tb's work 
ia Invested with the syllabical accent,^ because, as yet, excepting two or three Grammarians along 
with the Author, no wiiter in France, nor even the Academy itself, has thought proper 10 enforce 
this part of delivery, how unfortunately neglected. 

*^ The Phraseology, forming the second essential part of this Dictionary, is based on that of 
the Academy, the sole and legitimate authority in France ; and every effort of the Author hae 
been so directed, as to render it both copious and practical. With this view, an improved method 
of elucidating new meanings, by employing pnrenthese^, has been introduced, and it is hoped that 
the utility and benefits resulting from this improvement will not fail to be duly appreciated. 

" Another novelty to whi'h the Author may lay claim, is the placing of Historical and Geo- 
graphical names below each page : and, by this arrangemenS the facility of beins acquainted 
with their definition and pronunciation at a single glance, will be found of no small advantaga. 
As to the English or second part of this Dictionary, ttte reader will find it to consist of a coptoat 
rocabnlary oT terms, with theii pronunciation, according to the system of Walker. The varioui 
meanifigs of the words are translated into French ; and when the expressions happen to ba sul^ 
ftantives. the French gender is pointed out by means of proper signs. 

*' Lastly, that competent judges may be aware of diea uthontif s on which the pronunciation 
and aritieal remarks pervading this Dictionary are founded, the titles and dates of the woriM 
which have been consulted, with brief rofleetioai m tlMir pmssed objoat» will ho towSi in Ik**

** This is one of the best philosophical works that ever fi 1 into our hands to review. The 
eempiler has thoroughly investigated the subject of French pionunciat on, and baa done as muoh 
OS posaible to reduce to fixed rules the arbitrary methoda which obtain in accenting and regulating 
the quantity of syllablea in speaking that fashionable tongue. There is always o diversity of 
opinion in every langunge regarding pronunciation, custom and habit being the sole guides herein, 
and where they predominate, all attempt at reasoning about it must necessarily give way. Mr. 
SuRRKNKB tells US that this is the first work of the kind that has ever * appeared in the Englisk 
field of French education,* and from an attentive examination of 't, we believe he has left little 
for any follower in his path to effect. The method employed for representing the sounds of words, 
b intended particularly to meet the English or American age, and lie has been careful to use none 
but genuine French letters, so as to prevent the possibility of the reader's following a vieious 
system of articulation. There is a mass of instructive matter in the volume, independent of the 
chief aim at which the compiler has (lirected his attention, the particulars of which we have not 
space enough to enumerate. Suffice it to say, that it will prove of immense help to all who ass 
desirous of beginning or perfecting the study of the French language, now an essential part of • 
folite education. **

Anong fh€ waa^ of our time was a good Dictionary of our own language, espe 
«laUy adapte 1 for aeaderoies and schools. The books which have long been in wuse 
^nn *f llttlt value to the junior students, being too concise in the definitions, anil 
taunethodlcal in the arrangement Reid's English Dictionary was compiled ezptessly 
to develop the precise analogies and various properties of the authorised words io 
general use, by the standard authors and orators who use our vernacular tongue 

Exclusive of the large numbers of proper names which are appended, this Dictiea- 
ary includes four especial improvements — and when their essential value te tlM 
student is considered, the sterling character of the work as a hand-book of our Ian 
guage instantly will be perceived. 

The primitive word is distinguished by a larger type ; and where there are any de- 
rivatives firom it, they follow in alphabetical order, and the part of speech is append 
ad, thus ftimishing a complete classification of all the connected analogous wonls of 
the same species. 

With this facility to comprehend accurately the determinate meaning of the Englislk 
word, is conjoined a rich illustration for the linguist The derivation of all the prim 
ttive words is distinrtiy given, and the phrases of the languages whenee they are de 
Aieed, whether comp<)site or simple ; so that the student of foreign languages, both 
ancient and modem, by a reference to any word, can ascertain the source whenee it 
has been adopted into our qwn form of speech. This is a great acquisition to th« 
^rson who is anxious to use words in their utmost clearness of meaning. 

To these advantages is subjoined a Vocabulary of the Roots of English Words, 
which is of peculiar value to the collegian. The fifty pages which it includes, for- 
lish the linguist with a wide-spread field of research, equally amusing and instruct* 
ive. There is also added an Accented List, to the number of fifteen thousand ci 
•Ireek, Latin, and Scripture Proper Names. 

With such novel attractions, and with such decisive merits, the reconunendarioDS 
which are prefixed to the \vork by Professors Frost, Henry, Parks, and Reed, Messrs 
inker and Greene, principals of the two chief grammar schools at Boston, and by Dr. 
Reese, Supeni. .er cent of Common Schools for the city and county of New York, an 
Justly doe to ih" lanors of the sulhor. They fhlly corroborate the opinion ex p r e s s ed 
Wf several other comi>etcnt auti' irittes, that *' Reid*s English Dictionary is pecnUariy 
a d a pted for ihe use of <Knool9 ^i* Guidlies, and is far saperior to any other

*'Thfs treatJae in repabliBhed and edited with the hope that it will be found nieful ai a text-book 
fn the study of oar own langua^. Ai a ralyeet of instraction, the study of the English tongno 
does not receive that amount of systematic attention which is due to it, whether it Jie eombined of 
no with the study of the Greek and Latin. In the usual courses of education, it haa no larger 
scope than the study of some rhetorical principles and practice and of grammatical rules, which, 
for the most part, are not adequate to the composite character and varied idiom of English qMoch. 
This is far from being enough to give the needful knowledge of what is the living language, both 
of our English literature and of the multiform intercourse— oral and v.-ritten— of our daily lives. 
The language deserves better care and more sedulous culture ; it'nee'^ much more to preserve its 
parity and to guide the progress of its life. The yoong, instead of having only such familiarity 
with their native speech as practice without method or theory gives, should be so taught and 
liaioed as to acquire a habit of using words— whether with the voice or the pen— fitly i^ ^nljt 
imeUigently and conscientiously. 

** For such training this book, it is believed, will prove serviceable. The ^Practical Extreuts,* 
tftached to the explanations of the words, are conveniently prepared for the routine of instruction. 
Fbe value of a course of this kind, regularly and carefully completed, will be more than the 
amount of information gained respecting the words that are explained. It will tend to produoe a 
thoughtful and accurate use of language, and thus may be acquired, almost unconsciously, that 
which is not only a critical but a moral habit of mind — ^the habit of giving utterance to truth in 
simple, dear and precise terras— of telling one's thouglits and feelings in words that express nothing 
mere and nothing less. It is thus that we may learn how to escape the evils of vagueness 
•ib«;urity and perplexity — ^the manifold mischiefs of words used thoughtlessly and at random, ui 
words used in ignorance and confusion. 

** In preparing this edition, it seemed to me that the value and literary interest of the book might 
■• increased by the introduction of a series of illustrative authorities. It is in the addition of 
tti es e authorities, contained within brackets under each title, and also of n general index to faeili- 
wate refbrenee, that this edition differs from the original edition, which in other respects is exactly 
leprittted. I have confined my choice nf authorities to poetical quotations, chiefly because it is in 
poetry that Iangua;;e is found in iu highest purity and perfectiim. The sdections have been 
made from three of the English poets — eacli a great authority, and each belonging' to a different 
period, so tlmt in this way some historical illustration of the language is given at the same time* 
The quotations from Shakspeare (burn a. d. 1564, died 1616) may be considered as illustrating tho 
)se of the words at the clow of the 16th and beginning of the 17th century ; those from Milton 
(born 1606, died 1674) tiie succeeding half century, or middle of the 17lh Mnturv : nnJ thowfroM

Thii work b divided into three parts. The first relates to Grammar ; it contaJin a flmrripftna 
ft the diffisreot letten of the alphabet and their various sounds, of syllables, and also of words ai 
larts of speech. The second part contains a classifieation and description of all the sentences m 
("brmulas of thought in every aegree of expansion, to be found in the English language. F^Um 
Jiird contains a series of exercrses on paragraphs : the sentences not detached aim cuuHified as M 
ftiit second, but appearing in the connections and relations of ordinary disoourses. 

All who acknowledge any degree of interest in having the ^oung acquire the laisest araoont 4t 
information in the shortest possible time, and at the least possible expense, will be tod to examins 
the method this work proposes to substitute for the prevailing one. To further iUostrata the jfttm 
of the Author, the following Extract from tira Preface is given : 

" 1. It will impart a kind of knowledge which can be acauired in no other way, and whieh 
indeed no one has hitherto attempted to teach ; a knowleoge of sentential structure ; of Um 
anatomy, the bones, nerves, and museles of the language ; of the various forms of 
which thought assumes in obtaining utterance in conversation or books. 

** S. It lavs a foundation in the nature of things, in the very structure of language^ for a 
net, intelligent, and graeetui delivery, in reading and speaking. 

** 3. It will prepare the pupil for the study of grammar. There are few teacheit, I fMeeame, whs 
have not felt tne want of an intermediate stage of instruction between that study and reading ; of 
something to bridge the chosra between the two, and render the transition from the one to the odMr 
less abrupt icnd difficult. To pass at once, with a mere capacity to put the words of a sentanea 
together and make sense out of them, to the study of grammar, u equivalent to a leap from aritin 
metic numeration to the abstractions of algebra. Perceiving this, not a few teachers of emineaea 
liave recommended the study of the Latin language, as a preparation for that of English giam- 
Biar ; and in the present state of thinn the recommendation is, in iky opinion, a judicious one. I 
distinctlv remember, that I myself obtained more knowledge of the principles of English granimaf 
fh>m a few weeks* study of the Latin, than I obtained during a year of previous applieatioB to 
the English alone. But the study of Latin is not pursued in our common schools ; and if it wera^ 
an immense minority of the youth taught in them have neither the means, time, nor inclination to 
pursue it. If possible, therefore, a substitute should be provided. In the following work I lutw 
attempted this ; and it cannot be read, I think, more tnan once, certainly not more than twioa 
Uirou^h, if read with any degree of care, without fixing in the mind of the pupil some varf 
important grammatical ideas ; and this while yet ignorant, perhaps, of what the word *giai^ 
matical ' means.**

Whereas, in our opinion, reading is the most important branch of education taught in our 
eehools, demanding Uie best qualifications in teachers, as well as an in^troved method of instma- 
tion ; and whereas it has been hitherto, to a lamentable extent, underrated and neigleefad, or ff 
eultivated with due diligence, cultivated on principles which afford but little hope ot improva- 
ment ; and whereas Professor Mandeville, of Hamilton College, has made it clear to os that a 
better method than the prevailing one may and ought to be substituted — a method which, I 
adopted, must produce striking improvement, and feeling grateful to him for the informatioa ha 
Imu imparted to us ; therefore 

Res<^ved, That the thanks of the superintendents, Instruetors and pupils* of this Institute asa 
tendered to Prof. Mandeville, for his original and valuable course of instruction on reading. 

Resolved, As the settled conviction of the Board of Instruction, and of the members of thU 
Institute, that the system taught by Professor Mandeville is the system of nature ; at once seientifia 
and practical, sound in its theory and principles, simple in its statements, and pertinent aaA 
ample in its illustrations ; and that his work, in which this system is most beautifully dev^lopedt 
should t>e carefuiiy studied and mastered by every practical teacher.

[Letter iiom the Rev. J. R. Boyd, Author of the ** Elements of Rhetoric and LiterBry CifU* 
V and **Ee]ectioM6id PhaoMphy."] 

Watbrtown, Deo. 38, 18)0. 

Having; examined, with some oaie, the recent work of Prof. Mandeville, entitled a " Coum 
of Reading,'' I am free to express the opinion that it possesses transcendent claims to public ac' 
ceptance and nse. It is not a mere collection of pieces in Prose and Vene, like the niadinf 
books in common nse, bnt a work on the art of reading, constructed upon a plan that seems p» 
caliarly well ai!«pted to accomplish more by far than other reading books. It embraces a phi* 
iosophical analysis of the English language, in its letters, elementary sounos, and various forms 
of sentences. The nature and uses of the varioas parts of speech are very properly and minutely 
expiuned as a preliminary to the classification and description of all the sentences or formulas 
of thought to be found in the English language. Numerous examples of each kind of sentence 
are given gq>aratdyf and instructions for the manner of reading them are furnished. By this 
orocess the acquisition of the art of reading must be greatly facilitated. The next process car- 
ries the student forward to the reading of paragraphs, as found in the connections and relations 
of ordinary- discourse, and these are to be analyzed into their component parts according to in- 
itrnctions previousl^iven and acted upon in the reading of separate and classified sentences. 

I agree with the author in* the belief that his work is peculiarly well adapted to impart a 
knowledge of the structure of the English language ; that it lays a broad and just foundation for 
an uitelligent and correct delivery ; that it prepares the pupil for the study of English Grammar 
and i-fldeed introduces him to a practical and nsefol acquaintance with noi a small part of what 
piopei!y belongs to the science of Grammar, but not less so to the art of Reading ; and further, 
that it furnishes a very happy introduction to the art of Rhetoric, or of English Composition. 

The p^uliarities of the work are briefly set forth by the author in the following word»-« 
" Every sentence in the language is described ; and every sentence has its own delivery. Tho 
structure learned therefore by one, two, or at most three reviews, it is learned forever. Hence- 
forward as soon as a sentence falls under the observation of the pupil, he knows how it should 
be read ; and while he can read it, he can give a solid reason for its being read in that particular 


Such being the general features of the work under consideration, I shall consider it a pleasing 
duty to make an experiment of its value with classes nnd^r my care, and to recommend iJie sama 
•xperiment to other instructors. 

J. R. BOYD, 
Principal Jefftravn, Gncnty /iMtitKte. 

November 27, 1840. 

Dear Sir, — Having examined with considerable care " Mandeville's Course of Reading," 1 
consider it of far more practical value, as a means of making correct readers, than any other 
that has come under my observation ; and although sensible of the inconvenience arising fiom a 
frequent change of books, I cannot avoid the conviction that the introduction of the work un 
der consideration, would greaUy facilitate the progress of the pupil in this elegant and useful ao- 
■omplishment. The author has not attempted a servile imitation of what others have done, but 
has originated an entirely new plan— a plan as scientific as it is original, and as useful as it it 
beautiful. I cannot bnt deem it a valuable accession to the means of instruction employed in 
•ar common schooht and academies. I shall introduce it into my own school. 

Very respeetfully,

Hm fkTonrable reeeption which Ollendorff's German Grammar haa reeeired from the Amerteaft 
pablie, haa induced tlie Publiahen and the Editor to comply with the rery general demacd fin 
a Cferman Reader. 

Complaint!, more or lev loud, have been made both by teacher and learner, against mott of the 
Seaden heretofore oflbred to the public in this country, aa well aa in England and Germany 
Books of this kind now in the market, may be reduced to two classes: 1st. SeleeHfine frem ike 
Oerman CfosstM, or Elegant Extracte^ corresponding somewhat to our English Readers. Of 
these, two desenre special notice, via. Gboeob Mithl*8 Paoan ALirrHoi.oeT, (Carlsnihe and 
London, 1830,) and in this country, Follbn'b GBaMAii Rbasxr. The objections to the fixmn 

are, that it contains no poems, and hence lacks an essential element of an introduction to Gennaa 
Literature, and presents too little rariety to the learner ; it has, moreorer, no Tocabnlary, and the 
most difficult passages are often left unnoticed in the annotations. The latter is, as it regards the 
variety and tlM good taste exhibited in its matter, far superior to any other similar work, and haa 
for many years been almost the only Reader in use among us. To learners not classically edn 
•ated, however, (and to many that are,) the pieces near the beginning are by fiir too difficult, and 
the assistance too scanty. The arrangement is not progressive, so that pieces near the end of th« 
book are much easier than many in the beginning or middle. 

9d. The second class of Readers are such as profess to faeSitate the business of reading. They 
■re gmerally baaed on the Hamiltonian method, i. e., the pieces are aceompanied with transla- 
tions, either tnteriinear and literal, or free and ojipostCe. The difficulty with the books of this 
class is, that they leave the learner where they found him, unable by himself to account for tin 
grammatical construction of a sentence ; and when he lays aside the book to take up another, 1m 
finds that it is one thing to read by the aid of a translation and quite another to read understand- 
Ingly. The principal books of this class are Zimmer*e Cferman Teacher, (Heidelberg and Loo- 
don, 1839,) GantTe Literary Companiany (Frankfort, 1841,) better in its selections than the fiial^ 
and BokwaCe Oerman Reader, (Philadelphia.) 

The plan of this German Reader u as follows, viz. : 

L The pieces are both prose and poetry, selected from the best authoia, and are so arranged M 
to present sufficient variety to keep alive the interest of the scholar. 

S. It ii progressive in its nature, the pieces being at first very short and eaav, and incnaaiof in 
difficulty and length as the learner advances. 

3 At the bottom of the page constant references to the Grammar are made, tiie difficult pas- 
sages are explained and rendered. To encourage the first attempt of the learner as much as possi 
ole, the twenty-one pieces of the first section are analyzed, and all the necessary words given al 
(he bottom of the page. The notes, which at first are very abundant, diminish as the laaraar ad- 

4. It contains JS«« sections. The Jiret contains easy pieces, chiefly in prose, with all the wotda 
necessary for translating them ; the eeeond, short pieces in prose and poetry altenv tely, with 
pious notes and renderings ; the third, short popular tales of Grimm and others ; tb fowrth, 
ballads and other poems from Bubrobr, Gokths, Schillbr, Uhland, Schw a, CHAinaaa 
ice. ; ih» fifth, prose extracts from the first classics. 

S At ihs end Is added a vocAsvLAaT of all the words occurring In the boak.

Frbfacb. — ^This Tolume is intended ae a reading-book for those who an 
•ommencing the study of the Italian language ; and the Greciam of its title— 
Crestomazia It a liana — sufficiently indicates that it contains a seleetion atf 
pleasing and useful pieces of Italian prose, taken from the best writers. 

In its compilation, the aim has been more particularly to engage the min4 
and enlist the feelings o^ the student ; for to read without sympathy, is to a« 
quire a distaste for learning — to march without making progress. For thii 
reason, principally, preference has been given to modem authors, most ol 
whom are still living. It is not meant, by so doing, to dispute the nniver- 
sally acknowledged merit of the ancient Italian writers registered in the claasif 
catalogue approved by the despotical dictatorship of the Academy of the 
Crusca. They are unquestionably masters in purity of language and style ; 
but the subjects upon which they wrote are not the best calculated to 
inspire with sympathy and interest the young — especially the young Ameri- 
can — ^mind. On the contrary, modem authors, influenced by the existing 
principles relative to social improvement, and by a philosophical criticism 
far superior to that of the ancients, wrote in Italy, as elsewhere, with mors 
depth of tnoughtr freshness and vigour of style, and in a tone and spirit mors 
in accordance with the opinions and taste of the present time ; and it is quite 
probable their writings will be more relished by the readers of to-day. 

The selections contained in this volume have been made from the works oi 
eminent men, whose fame rests upon an authority of far more weight and 
power than that of the Crasca — the united public voice of their native country. 

The ItaHan, owing to the freedom of its construction, is not so grammatically 
simple as the French; it is, besides, exceedingly rich in idioms: to facilitata^ 
therefore, the pro^jess of the student, in the rendering of the most difficoh 
idiomatic foroia or phiaMS, a glossary has been sabjoined to each partiowlti

Extract from the JVoMglator'g Prrfaee, 

** The fourteenth edition of the Hebrew Grammar of Gesenius is now offered to the public by 
Ae translator of the eleventh edition, by whom thu work was first made accessible to students in 
die English language. The conviction expressed in bu preface to that edition, that iti publica- 
tion in this country would subserve the interests of Hebrew literature, has been fully sustained by 
the result. After a full trial of the merits of this work, both in America and in England, its re- 
puJilication is now demanded in iti latest and most improved form. 

** Of the general character of this grammar it is unnecessary to speak. It passed throucii 
thirteen editions with continual improvements from the author's own hand. The fourteenth edi- 
tion was prepared, after the death of Gesenius, by his friend and former pupil, Prof. Rodiger, one 
of the most accurate oriental scholars of the age, who for some time lectured on Hebrew Grommai 
in the University at Halle, with the work of Gesenius for his text-book. Traces of his accurate 
sefaolarship are found, in the form of corrections and additions, in every part of the work ; ana 
•ome portions have been re-wrltten, but on tiie same general philological principles, and in thi 
lame spirit as the preceding editions. 

** The exercises, which follow the translation, are designed to facilitate the study of the girna- 
mar. They were prepared after several jrears' observation, as a teacher, of the diniculties which 
•mbarraas the student in his first attempt to learn an oriental language. They have been oaad 
with ^reat advantage by a teacher under my direction during the last seven years, and by tencheti 
in other Institutes. 

**The notes to the Chrestomathy have been prepared on the plan which every teacher of expe- 
rience will appreciate, of re-printing nothing which is contained in the grammar ; and what i? 
equally important, of repeating nothing which has once been stated and learned. On a differen 
plan, the same amount of information might easily have been extended over a hundred pages, 
and with no other effect than to retard the real proficiency of the learner. The £Lcereisei and 
CShiestomathy have been carefully revised, and the numerous references, in which it is li«li8r«i 
— * an error remains, have been adapted to this edition of the grammar.

The ^blish«n believe that, in the edition of Livy herewith annonnoed, a want will be n^ 
jriied which is now nniTenally felt ; there being at present no American edition fttrnithed witk 
the raqniaita ^paratna for the sncceasful prosecution of the stady of this Latin anlhor. 

The extracts selected for this edition will secure the material for an amount of reading in 
Livy equal to that which is accomplished in any of our coUe^, and will comprise the finest as 
well as the most useful and icterestinf passages in the writings of the great Latin historian. 
They will be taken chiefly from the first five books (the first nearly entire,) the twentv-first, 
twenty-«eoond, and the sumieqnent books on the Second Funic War, with such other portions as 
can be introduced without increasing the volume beyond the size suited to its intended purpose. 

The text will be based upon that of Drakenborsch, with some changes from subsequent editon, 
and especially, in the earlier books, from the recent valuable work of Dr. AlschefaKi, of Berlin, 
of which the first volume was published in 1841, the second in 1843, and the third has just ap- 

The notes will consist of selections from the best commentators, as Drakenborsch, Crevier, &c., 
and smaller school editions ; and, to a considerable extent, of original matter, embodying the 
results of the editor's ovm labors and experience in reading Liv^r with his classes in college. 
They will be partly grammatieal^ aiming at the solution of difliculties, and the illustration of tno 
language, with constant references to the gramman and other helps most in use in this country, 
as Andrews and Stoddard's Grammar, Zumpt's Grammar by Schmidtz, T. K. Arnold's Latin 
Prose Composition, Krebs' Guide for writing Latin, &c., and partly ejplanatorjfy giving the 
neoeasanr information on all obscure matters, and especially in regard to the early nistory of 
Rome, furnishing so far as practicable and useful, the resalts of the researohes of Niebubr, Ar* 
nold, and other modem wnten, together with references to Smith's Dictionary of Gre^ and 
Roman Antiquities. 

The Notes will be fullest on the first two books and the beginning of the third ; on the fifth 
and sixth, and on the twenty-fint and twenty-eeoond books. 

The proposed edition will ba fnznished with a sufficiently copious Geographical and Historical 
Index, and accompanied by a Plan of the City of Rome, (from the recent German work oij 
Becker 09 Roman antiquities,) together with some other usetnl illnstrations.

Chramman of ProfeMor OUendorff. It consists of a series of lessons, so arranged as padnally tm

knowledge of both its theory and practice. When it is considered that Ollendorff's works haw 
taken the precedence, both in Earope and the United States, in the well-oaltivatedfidds4>f
