THE Second Edition differs from the former in containing å much greater number of passages for Translation : almost one half of the entire selection being new. An arrangement of the pieces according to their respective difficulty was attempted but abandoned for several reasons, partly because it was impossible to carry out such a plan satisfactorily, partly because the Book would have been so transformed as to render reference to it inconvenient for those Master of Schools and Tutors who have been accus

tomed to the use of the former Edition.


Jan. 28, 1858

In the Third Edition the numbers prefixed to the passages for Translation into Latin Prose correspond with those of the Second : the first number prefixed to the passages for Greek Prose corresponds with the 465th number of the Second: in order therefore to find the number in this Edition of a passage corresponding to a given passage in the Second, subtract 464 from the given number, and the remainder will be the number required.
