A Handbook of the English Language by Latham

The subjects are systematically arranged


_From _M. Y. BROWN_, Principal of Webster School, New Haven._

"I have used Comings' Class-Book of Physiology for nearly two school terms in the First Department of my school. I am happy to say that I regard it the _best text-book_ on this important branch with which I have any acquaintance. The subjects are systematically arranged; the principles, facts, and illustrations are clearly and fully represented to the pupil. I find that his introduction of Comparative Anatomy and Physics, tends greatly to increase the interest of the pupil in this _most important_ and necessary study. I therefore can cheerfully recommend this admirable work to my fellow-teachers as one of rare excellence, and hope it may take the rank it deserves as a text-book upon this subject."

_From _ABRAHAM POWELSON, JR._, Teacher, Brooklyn, New York._

"After a very careful examination of the Class-Book of Physiology, by Comings, I can freely say that I consider it a performance of superior excellence. It embodies a fund of information surpassing in importance and variety that of any other work of the kind which has come under my notice."

PUBLISHED BY C. & G. MERRIAM, SPRINGFIELD, MASS.

_From_ DANIEL WEBSTER.

I possess many Dictionaries, and of most of the learned and cultivated languages, ancient and modern; but I never feel that I am entirely armed and equipped in this respect, without Dr. Webster at command.

_From_ RUFUS CHOATE.

Messrs. G. &. C. Merriam:--Gentlemen, I have just had the honor of receiving the noble volume in which you and the great lexicographer, and the accomplished reviser, unite your labors to "bid the language live." I accept it with the highest pride and pleasure, and beg to adopt in its utmost strength and extent, the testimonial of Daniel Webster.

_From_ JOHN C. SPENCER.

Unquestionably the very best Dictionary of our language extant. Its great accuracy in the definition and derivation of words, gives it an authority that no other work on the subject possesses. It is constantly cited and relied on in our Courts of Justice, in our legislative bodies, and in public discussions, as entirely conclusive.
