The author's object, in preparing the present work, was to furnish the student with such a view of the leading features in the Grammar of the Greek Language as might prove useful to him, not only at the commencement of his career, but also during its whole continuance. Nothing has therefore been omitted, the want of which might in any degree retard his progress; and yet, at the same time, the work has been brought within such limits as will render it easy of reference, and not deter from perusal. The best and latest authorities have been carefully consulted; and every effort has been made to exhibit a concise outline of all the leading principles of Greek Philology. Under the head of Prosody the author has given merely a brief collection of Rules ; as the larger work on this subject will be found to contain all that is requisite in this department of instruction.
