1 ANDREWS, E[THAN] A[LLEN]. and, STODDARD, S[OLOMON] A grammar of the Latin language for the use of schools and colleges.
Boston Crocker & Brewster, 1855 Hard Cover Good 
The 52d ed. carefully revised and corrected by E.A. From the preface: "The grammar here presented to public originated in a design, formed several years since, of preparing a new edition of Adam's Latin Grammar, with such additions and corrections as the existing state of classical learning plainly demanded. We had not proceeded far in the execution of this purpose, before we were impressed with the conviction, which our subsequent researches continually confirmed, that the defects in that manual were so numerous, and of so fundamental a character that they could not be removed without a radical change in the plan of the work." From the website of Wikipedia the free encyclopedia, "Ethan Allen Andrews (1787-1858) was an American educator. He was born in Connecticut and graduated at Yale in 1810. He practiced law for several years, then (1822-28) was professor in the University of North Carolina, after which he taught at New Haven and Boston. He published a number of Latin textbooks and in 1850 a Latin-English lexicon, based on Freund which went through many revisions and came to be known as Harper's Latin Dictionary (1907). He published with Solomon Stoddard a Latin grammar, long very popular. A monograph, Slavery and the Domestic Slave Trade in the United States, was printed in Boston in 1836." xii, 323 pages, boards, some shelf wear otherwise very good.
