Cato's Distichs de moribus improved : in a more compleat and useful method than any yet extant. Containing not only a correct numerical clavis, with a construing and parsing index, but also a literal translation of Erasmus's comment on each distich, the English answering exactly to the Latin in distinct Columns, and distinguished by the same Characters, the Roman and Italic being used alternately to that End, for the Ease of the Learner. To which are added, as a further Advantage, the proper quantities mark'd on the Penultima, or last Syllable but one, of every Word both in Verse and Prose, to prevent false Pronunciation; a Matter of great Importance to the speedy Attainment of the Latin Tongue: Being digested in so Plain and Easy a Manner, that a Youth who is just acquainted with the Rudiments of Grammar may, by the Help of this Method, construe and parse his Lesson with Pleasure, and pronounce it right without a Master. For the use of schools. By J. Roberts, Formerly of St. John's College in Oxford
