Phædri, Augusti Liberti, Fabularum Æsopiarum Libri Quinque ; or, A correct Latin Edition of the Fables of Phædrus, with English Notes, and a copious construing and parsing Vocabulary. Baltimore. Fielding Lucas, Jr. 12mo. pp. 242.
This edition of Phædrus is prepared expressly for the use of pupils in the first forms of their Latin studies, and for that object it may be highly recommended. The notes, which are in English, are judicious and well adapted to the capacity and knowledge of the learner in the primary stages of his Latin studies, explaining only what needs explanation, and that in a brief and intelligible manner. There is a vocabulary containing all the words used in the volume, with short and appropriate definitions. But what we deem of peculiar importance is, that the quantity of many words is marked in the text, thus leading the student to a right pronunciation, at the same time he is learning the principles of the language. This facility has been too much neglected in the school editions of the classics, and teachers have been compelled to accustom the ear of the pupil to an accurate pronunciation by incessant repetition, and at last have often failed, when a mark in the text denoting the quantity would have given the right sound at once, without trouble or effort.
In our opinion this edition would be still improved if more of the words were marked. The editor seems to have adopted no rule in this respect; but it would be a good rule, and one which might be followed without exception, to mark the long penultimates of all words consisting of more than two syllables; it being understood that such as are not marked are short. This would teach prosody to a certain extent and pronunciation fully, according to Walker's principles; by which all Latin words of two syllables are accented on the first; and all words of more than two syllables are accented on the penultimate when that is long, and on the antepenultimate when the penultimate is short. These are small matters, but they become of great importance when applied to the first lessons of education.
MR MARIANO CUBI Y SOLER, Professor of the Spanish Language in St Mary's College, Baltimore, and the well known author of several publications to facilitate the acquisition of that language, proposes to publish a new SPANISH GRAMMAR, on an enlarged plan.
It is to be written wholly in the Spanish language, not merely as an elementary treatise, but as a 'philosophical and literary grammar, which may serve both as a complete repository of the Spanish, and a sure guide for any native or foreigner, desirous of obtaining a profound knowledge of that language.' The author speaks of having devoted much time and research in making preparation for his work. It is to consist of two octavo volumes, at the price of three dollars each.
