Excerpt from Adam's Latin Grammar: Simplified, by Means of an Introduction; Designed to Facilitate the Study of Latin Grammar, by Spreading Before the Student, in the Compass of a Few Pages, What Is Most Essentially Necessary to Be Remembered
Owing to the carelessness or ignorance of printers and) proof-readers, in copying, in each succeeding edition, the errors of its predecessor, and adding thereto a long cata logue of new ones, when the first edition of this work was about to be put to press, there could not be found a' copy of Adam's Latin Grammar sufficiently correct to rint from. It became necessary, therefore, to employ a person, (mr. Fisk being out of e city, ) of sufiicient leisure and ability, to undertake its correction Mr. Joseph Osborn, of this city, a gentleman well known as combining in himself, With a cultivated education, the advantages of many years' experience in proof-reading, was therefore engaged; and to burn the publick is, in a good degree, indebted for a tolerably correct copy of a Latin Grammar. The proof sheets, after being read and corrected by Mr. Osborn, were sent to the author, at Troy, to be read and revised by him, which was done in order to di vest the work', if possible, of every error, even the most triﬂing. To secure for the suc ceeding editions the corrections thus obtained, by this immense labour, and at this great expense; and, irr order to provide for the correction of any errors which might after wards be discovered, without the possibility of creating new ones, it was found necessary to stereotype the work.
In addition to the pains thus taken to have the first edition comparatively correct, and in order, if possible, to have the second entirely free from errors, a copy has been carefully preserved, in which have been recorded, from time to time, such errors as have been dis covered by the proof-reader, by the author, and by such teachers as have had the good ness to favour me with a list of the errors that they have discovered while using the book, (for which they have my grateful acknowledgments.)
