    Description & More Details

    First published in 1884, Kaegi's Greek Grammar was designed for beginning students with this principle in mind: "The study of grammar is but to aid the reading of Greek." Kaegi's approach enjoyed wide acceptance and acclaim, with translations into Bohemian, Russian, French, and Polish. In its 21st edition, the book remains an excellent tool for helping students achieve Greek literacy.
