A Grammar of the Italian Language (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from A Grammar of the Italian Language Every one about to publish a book, is accustomed to commence with a preface, in which he chieﬂy re commends it, if not for its originality, at least for its order and clearness, in preference to other works of the same kind. Should I do so? It would be contrary to my opinion. Whatever may be the merits of my book, I leave them to the decision of those for whose use I have written it. To recommend it would be of no avail, if it had no merit; and on the contrary a pompous preface would not add to the value of the work. I beg to assure my English Readers that, whatever judgment they may pass upon my treatise, my only aim has been to assist them in overcoming the difficulties of one of the richest and most copious languages, the lan guage of poetry and song; and also to endeavour to facilitate its acquisition at the least expense of time and labour. Au impartial Public will judge whether I have attained my end or not. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
