OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. “A good school-book. The type is as clear as the arrangement."- Atheneum, Jan. 6, 1877.

“We are not astonished to hear that it has met with the most flattering reception." -School Board Chronicle, March 10, 1877.

“We have no hesitation in stating our opinion that no more useful or practical introduction to the French language has been published than this.”Public Opinion, l.larch 24, 1877.

“England is fortunate in the services of a small knot of French Masters like IM. Masson and Brette, who have, alike by their teaching and their school-books, clone much for the scientific study of the language and literature of France. After successfully introducing into English form the Public School French Grammar, in which M. Littré's researches are happily applied by M. Brachet so as to show the relation of modern French to Latin, MM. Brette and Masson here translate and adapt the Petite or Elementary French Grammar. That has at once proved as popular as the more elaborate treatise.”Edinburgh Daily Review, March 20, 1877.

“Of this excellent school series we have before us the Public School Elementary French Grammar-(1) Accidence and (2) Syntax. Brachet's work is simply beyond comparison with any other of its class; and its scientific character is not sacrificed in the very judicious adaptation which has made it available for English students.There is no better elementary French Grammar, whether for vous or for girls.Hereford Times, April 11, 1887.

OPINIONS. “The best Grammar of the French language that has been published in England." PROFESSOR ATTWELL.

"It is certainly the fullest and most elaborate, and repeated revision seems to have made it one of the most accurate and scholarly of all English-French grammars—a class of book not too frequently distinguished by these qualities.”—Saturday Review, July 28, 1883.

"'We have nothing but praise for the new edition of this excellent Grammar, which gives, as it professes to do, all the latest results of modern philology, and which is remarkably clear and attractive in its arrangement.”The Tablet, June 23, 1883.

“I bave much pleasure in being able to compliment you on the publication of such an excellent work. The historical portion of the work is clearly brought out, and contains much valuable information. To all those accustomed to the preparation of our higher Exaininations such information is of the greatest importance. The transition from the Latin to the French of the present day is so clearly sl.own, that it reads more like a pleasing story than an exposition of grammar. The author bas a happy knack of putting his details in a most interesting form; and he has certainly succeeded in proving that French Grammar is not so repulsive as some of the old cutand-dried books make it. ..."-F. GARSIDE, M.A., Head Master, St. Luke's Middle Class School, Torquay.

“C'est bien certainement l'ouvrage le plus complet et le plus sérieux de ce genre écrit en anglais.”—DR. L. PARROT, Tppingham School.,

The last and most scientific French Grammar we know has just been published by Hachette & Co. The Etymology and the Syntax are specially good, and the entire volume is admirable." - The Freeman.

“Like the great work on whose lines it is built, the Public School Latin Grammar, it not merely gives the latest outcome of philological research, but it reduces it to a system with definite simple rules and principles, for the easy understanding of the student, and for ready application in the general reading of his authors.”—The Standard, February 16, 1876.
