The Approach To Latin - First Year

£24.99

Product description

A rare Latin Primer with two ends in view - first, the provision of a sound grammatical foundation; second, the maintenance of interest by a fresh, lively and many-sided application of the formal elements.

In the 51 lessons of the book a selected minimum of grammar is gradually unfolded, set out clearly, and grouped in a natural way. Special vocabularies are provided, one for each lesson. These vary in length. The longest, however, should not prove too much for the acquisitive memory of the eleven-to-twelve year-olds; and essential words are kept 'alive' by repetition in subsequent exercises. the total vocabulary slightly exceeds 600 words.

Rare vintage 1942. Has the signs of wear that stem from age and use. There are signs of shelf wear to the edge of the covers and to the spine. There is some browning to the closed page edges. There is some foxing to some of the pages. There is an inscription on the front free endpaper and some pencil annotations on several of the pages. However, the binding is fairly tight.
