Gildersleeve's Latin Grammar is the classic, comprehensive review of etymology, Latin grammar and syntax, and prosody. Favored by many students and teachers, Gildersleeve's Latin Grammar was enhanced in 1997 with a new foreword and comprehensive bibliography.

In the words of Basil L. Gildersleeve, "Rightly interpreted, grammar is the culmination of philological study, and not its rudiment . . . No study of literature can yield its highest result without the close study of language, and consequently the close study of grammar."?

Review by: Basil Gildersleeve, Quote used on website - September 28, 2005
Rightly interpreted, grammar is the culmination of philological study, and not its rudiment…No study of literature can yield its highest result without the close study of language, and consequently the close study of grammar.
Review: Southern Review - September 28, 2005
Compare his work with any other treatise hitherto in use, and its superiority will be manifest.
Review by: Reginald Foster - September 28, 2005
...your wonderful rendition of Gildersleeve and Lodge arrived here and was a total joy, satisfaction and consolation to peruse and review. You may be interested to know that this reference (never teaching!!) instrument is the only one I have ever recommended to Latin scholars around us here in Rome. It is the only one which our higher-class “summer schoolers” must have in school every day and which our advanced, annual students must have at hand. While the added bibliography was really overwhelming, I found the introductory presentation of the person, condition and ideals of Mr. Gildersleeve (together with his picture) both illuminating and encouraging to us all. ...Now your expanded edition is only another reason for me to insist that all advanced students have this good, solid book nearby for consultation and private study.
