An introduction to the making of Latin. Comprising, after an easy, compendious method, the substance of the Latin syntax, with proper English examples, most of them translations from the classick authors, in one column, and the Latin words in another. To which is subjoined, in the same method, a succinct account of the affairs of ancient Greece and Rome, intended at once to bring boys acquainted with history, and the idiom of the Latin tongue. With rules for the gender of nouns. By John Clarke, late master of the publick grammar school in Hull.
