A New Latin Syntax.
Bristol Classical Press, Bristo, 1985. Reprint 1st ed.1959. XXIV,267p. Paperback. Spine with light reading trace. Loweer corner front cover slightly bumped. 'This book is frankly pedagogic in purpose. It offers material bearing on the chief Latin constructions arranged in such a way as to provide a revision course for Advanced Level in the schools and for undergraduates. Professor Woodcock has had long experience in teaching the subject, and he rightly believes that 'a thread of reason ought to be supplied in the presentation of Latin syntax.' By this he means a comparative and historical treatment of the grammatical rules presented in the usual text-books on Latin prose composition. Professor Woodcock brings to the implementation of his program a sound knowledge of Latinity and abundant exemplification culled from the authors usually studied in schools and universities ranging from Plautus to Tacitus. Full index of examples facilitates reference.' (L.R. PALMER in The Journal of Roman Studies, 1962, p.286).
