Description

This third edition of Aldus’s own grammar (and the last published in his lifetime) retains the pedagogical approach of presenting familiar texts interlinearly in Greek and Latin. The book is open to the texts of the Lord’s Prayer, the Ave Maria, and the Salve Regina. The text concludes with four leaves of introduction to the Hebrew alphabet with several parallel passages in Latin, Greek, and Hebrew. Bound in contemporary quarter blind-ruled calf over wooden boards with metal clasps. The title is lettered on the fore-edge.
