Helles und Dunkles

By Roy Temple House and Johannesburg Malthaner

This book is in good condition. There's a significant amount of wear on the front, back, spine and edges of the cover boards. The corners are bumped badly. The previous owners names are written on the inside of the front cover board. There are also markings on the front end page. The pages are tanned and there are pencil markings throughout the pages. "This collection of short stories is the fruit of an extensive search for profitable modern reading material for second-year students. The twenty-five stories which constitute it are the work of twenty-two different authors (all of them contemporary or nearly so), and offer a wide variety of theme and treatment. For the most part they are agreeably representative of characteristic aspects of German life and character. Only one story, Friedrich, is by a non-German writer. Anglo-Saxon readers may be struck by the sentimental strain in most of these authors; but sentimentality is a characteristic of the German, and we must take him as he is...." - Preface from Helles und Dunkles: An Intermediate German Reader

Mencken has pointed out, the Spanish language has made far more contributions to the vocabulary of American English than has any other European tongue. Beginning with the sixteenth century when the Spanish Empire was in the hey-day, the influence of the Spanish vocabulary came to be felt in England at the same time that Spanish words came into the American lexicon via the West Indies. Parts of the Spanish vocabulary were also added to our own as a result of the Spanish colonization of our Southwest and Florida, the continuous influence of Spanish south of the border during the whole of our frontier period, the Mexican War, and the Spanish-American War...." - Introductory Lesson One from Spanish for Beginners

Concise Dictionary of Twenty-Six Languages in Simultaneous Translation

By Peter M Bergman

This book is in good condition. The cover boards have some wear on the front, Back and spine. The edges of the cover boards are also worn, and there is bumping on all corners of the cover boards. The pages are yellowed and tanned, but free of any markings. "The purpose of this dictionary is to simplify as much as possible and not to burden the reader with rules and exceptions of grammar, syntax, different word meaning and pronunciation. However, a remark about the transliteration is necessary. Generally the continental pronunciation of Roman spelling was used in order to convey the sounds of words belonging to languages with non-Latin Alphabets. Only for Russian the sound of the letter X which is gutteral, like ch in the name of the composer Bach, kh was adopted as commonly used. Stress always the accented letter in Russian and the apostrophized syllable in Greek...." - Publisher's Note from Concise Dictionary of Twenty-Six Languages in Simultaneous Translation

The Language of the New Testament

By Eugene Van Ness Goetchius

This book is in good condition. There is a substantial amount of wear on the front, back and spine of the cover boards. The edges of the cover boards are also worn. The corners have also been bumped considerably. The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board. The pages are beginning to yellow and tan. "Greek, Sir, is like lace; every man gets as much of it as he can." This remark seems originally to have been regarded as among the more penetrating of Samuel Johnson's obiter dicta, though at present it is hard "get" it to believe that it ever made much sense. Nowadays Greek is like lace in that few men care whether they "get" any or not. However, a little rummaging in the debris of history reveals that not so very long ago a knowledge of Greek, like the possession of an assortment of lace cuffs and jabots, was an indispensable mark of a gentleman. Things went from bad to worse, as they inevitably seem to do, so that by the middle of the last century only the clergy were making any effort to uphold Dr. Johnson's standards, and most of them had given up lace...." - Introduction from The Language of the New Testament

It is intended to serve a twofold process. Its first object is to provide a collection of material that will prepare students, especially in the modern languages and history, who have had at least four years of high-school Latin, to read ordinary medieval Latin texts with a fair degree of ease and assurance. Its second object is to meet the needs of more advanced students who are interested in the field by furnishing an anthology of medieval Latin prose and poetry. The selections have been made with three classes of readers in mind: the classical student who is interested in the survival of the classical tradition in the Middle Ages; the student of the medieval literatures; and the student of medieval thought and culture. An attempt has been made to include as many of the great names as possible from Cassiodorus to Roger Bacon; to give specimens of various literary types; to present the widest possible view of the manifold aspects of medieval culture; and to give examples of the different kinds and styles of Latin." - Preface, A Primer of Medieval Latin

Vergil's Aeneid Books I-VI

By Vergil

A rare classic book published in 1930. This is a first edition book written in Latin. There is writing on the inside cover and the cover page. This edition of selections from Vergil's Aeneid (the Shield of Aeneas from Book 8 (8.608-731) and the Camilla sequence from Book 11 (11.498-596, 664-835), totaling 394 lines) is designed for high school and undergraduate use. It follows the special format of Clyde Pharr's widely-used edition of Books 1-6,1 like Boyd's recent volume of selections from 1-6, 10 and 12.2 namely the provision of vocabulary (and commentary) on the same page as the text. Boyd's larger volume included all passages on the syllabus for the Advanced Placement course 'Latin: Vergil', whereas the book under review, designed as a supplement (p.vii), is for use in other teaching and reading situations by fans of Pharr's presentation style. Whether teachers of Latin choose this edition will depend mainly on their opinion of this pedagogic strategy, but the commentary is well-pitched to its target audience, explaining difficult constructions and never specifically citing other scholarship. Bibliographies by theme offer further reading for studious teachers or students.
