Excerpt from An Elementary Latin Dictionary

This is substantially an abridgment of my 'latin Dictionary for Schools' (harper and Brothers, The vocabulary has been extended to include all words used by Catullus, Tibullus, Propertius, and Tacitus (in his larger works), as well as those used by Terence, Caesar, Sallust, Cicero, Livy, N epos, Vergil, Horace, Ovid, J uvenal, Phaedrus, and Curtius. On the other hand, space has been saved by the omission_ of all detailed references to books and passages, only the name of the writer being indicated as authority for each word or phrase; and by limiting the illustrative citations to those which are typical or peculiarly instructive. Proper names, too, have been excluded, except those which, because of peculiarities of form or of. Their derivations, require special explanation.

In all other respects, the plan of the School Dictionary,' as explained in the Preface to it, has been followed, as far as the smaller size of the present work permits. In a few instances, errors which have been detected in the larger book have been corrected in this; and in two or three words, vowels, which were there left unmarked, are now distinguished as long, on the strength of later researches.

I take pleasure in acknowledging the valuable aid rendered me, in the prep aration of this abridgment, by J. W. Marshall, late Professor of the Latin Language and Literature in Dickinson College, by whom most of the illustrative phrases and passages cited have been selected.
