The increasing attention paid to Latin Composition renders works of this description more important ; and by the Lexicon Ciceronianum oi Nizolius, and this improved edition of Robertson, the access to Latin peculiarities is made more easy and sure ; for if correct Latinity were only to be acquired by an extensive and deep acquaintance ^ith the various works of classic authors, it would be absolutely un- attainable by any one in statu pupillayi, and could scarcely be taught in our schools.

The English is obsolete, the arrangement confused, the order of printing such as to render it difficult for consultation or reference, the redundancies so numerous as to increase most unnecessarily and seriously the bulk of the volume, and much of the Latin drawn from barbarous sources.
That there was ample room for improvement is obvi- ous on the slightest inspection of the old work.
*****^*y^*#^* Robertson's Latin Phrase Book having been long out of print and become scarce, many eminent teachers of the classics have expressed a desire to see a new and improved edition.But while the editor is calling public attention to improvements already made, he would not be thought insensible to the necessity of future im- provements, and will thankfully receive such ani- madversions as may render another edition still more useful.
