Preface to the third Edition.
In presenting this entirely new and enlarged Edition to the Public, and especially to the Students reading for Competitive and other Examinations, I beg to call attention to the fact, that during a period of more than twenty years, in which I have been engaged in preparing Candidates for such Examinations, I have found it exceedingly useful, thoroughly to work out with them a Series of Papers already set at previous Examinations; this being perhaps the truest test of their knowledge, and the best mode of making them understand to what standard of acquirements they must attain to in order to be successful.
Some of the Questions in Grammar and Literature have been intentionally repeated, that the Students may thereby observe which parts the Examiners consider to be the most important.
As this little work in its present form may also be used by more advanced Pupils as a French Reader, I have every reason to hope, that the patronage, with which my books have hitherto been favoured, will not only be continued, but extended Hanover, Easter 1881.
Prof. C. Rühle.
