From the Author's PREFACE: THE original idea of the following little work I owe to the Rev. Charles Tarver, Rector of Ilketshall, Suffolk, whose experience, while engaged in preparing pupils for Eton, had shown him the want which beginners felt of some further assistance than was supplied by my Gradus. The lists of Epithets, as given in the old Gradus, which marked only the quantity, and was silent as to the meaning of the words it gave, had long been seen by everyone to be productive of nothing but mischief, as preventing boys from thinking instead of teaching them to think; but my Gradus, which wholly discards them, substituting instead phrases selected from the Augustan poets, requires perhaps, more thought than very young beginners are capable of. In this book, therefore, which is only meant for those who are beginning to do verses out of their own sense, I have endeavoured not merely to supply them with sufficient help, but, by giving the meaning of the Epithets, to lead them to think for themselves, and to consider, not merely the quantity of the word, but its sense, so that they may judge of each adjective in connection with the subject of which they are writing, and so may select an appropriate one. As this book does not profess to be a complete Dictionary, but is only meant as a sort of Appendix to my Gradus, I have not thought it necessary either to give every Latin substantive, or even every meaning of those which are to be found in it. But at the same time, while, in order to compress it within the smallest practicable space, I have omitted many words and many meanings, I hope it will be found that I have given all those for which a beginner is likely to require an Epithet.
