This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed.

In his preface Mr. Hodges states that the purpose of his edition is to help the student avail himself fully of the advantages which the study of Caesar offers in the author's direct style, his pure vocabulary, the opportunity for drill in syntax, and his interesting story, in its proper setting as a part of the history of the development more
