Bradley's Arnold Latin Prose Composition
By Thomas K. Arnold
Edited by Donald Sprague
Revised by J.F. Mountford, G.G. Bradley
A newly revised and typeset edition of one of the most popular textbooks used for review of grammar and for writing Latin composition.
The gold standard in Latin composition, used by thousands, for good reasons: Bradley's Arnold covers the elements of Latin grammar and syntax methodically, from the basic to the complex, and teaches students how to put them together to write accurately in Latin. Plenty of examples and exercises, passages for translation, English-to-Latin vocabulary, indices. Now updated with grammatical terminology more in use today. Completely retypeset, with clear, easy-on-the-eyes fonts and format.
Bradley's Arnold is a comprehensive review of Latin grammar in the service of Latin prose composition.

George Granville Bradley (1821-1903) was Master of University College, Oxford, from 1870 to 1881 and Dean of Westminster from 1881 until 1902. In addition to Latin Prose Composition, Bradley published Recollections of A. P. Stanley (1883), Life of Dean Stanley (1892), Lectures on Job (1884), and Lectures on Ecclesiastes (1885).
Thomas Arnold (1795—1842) was a British educator and historian. He studied at Corpus Christi College, Oxford, and became a fellow of Oriel in 1815. Arnold became headmaster of Rugby School in England in 1828. He is also known for his Lectures on Modern History and his History of Rome, which is unfinished.
Comments and Reviews
The limitations notwithstanding, Bradley's Arnold remains perhaps the best single text for reinforcing the rules of Ciceronian Latin. Students at all levels will be grateful to Donald Sprague and the Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers for keeping it readily available.
