    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2013; US$ 13.50

    The study of classical languages by earlier generations of English-speaking students was greatly facilitated by the study of English grammar in the schools, a tradition now out of favor but one that emphasized precisely the concepts, terms, and constructions needed for the study of Greek and Latin.

  • Leaves on the Lineby Simon Toseland

    Pavilion Books 2013; US$ 5.82

Leaves on the Line... more...
