Excerpt from Extracts From Cicero, Narrative and Descriptive, Vol. 1: With English Notes; Anecdotes From Greek and Roman History
IT is hoped that a volume of Extracts from Cicero, bringing together from all parts of his writings specimens of his simple narrative style, will b... e useful for the middle forms of schools, and help to supply the want that is felt of a good construing book, interesting in itself and fairly easy, to succeed Cornelius Nepos and Caesar, while at the same time it will furnish a good model of style for trans lation into Latin of such passages of English as are usually set to beginners. The Editor has also found the shorter Anecdotes useful in teaching the rules of the Latin moods, by making boys turn those that are in Oratio Recta into Oratio Obliqua, and vice-versa. They are also well adapted for translation and re-translation.
In consequence of the wish for short and cheap Text books expressed by some of the leading Masters of Schools, it has been published in three separate parts, as well as in one complete work. Each part is followed by short notes on the passages given, in which the Editor has endeavoured to avoid inserting anything which may be readily found in a Classical Dictionary or Dictionary of Antiquities, or other common book of reference, but has sought to give such assistance as may help boys in making out their author, and point out to them the usages and idioms and points of grammar which it is important for them to attend to, as a foundation on which higher matters of scholarship may be built afterwards.
