This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1901 edition. Excerpt: ...193); animum adducere (Hec. 836). 57. alere: used in apposition with studium. ad philosophos: with animum adiungant. The change of construction is due to conversational freedom. So, too, horum (58) notwithstanding the singular quod. The leisure time of young men of means is here described as devoted either to horsemanship and the chase or to study in the schools of philosophy.

Iniuria is the opposite of hire. 61. adprime: gives a superlative sense to the adjective; it is used only in ante-and post-classical Latin. ut: sc. agas (Don.). See note on 56.
