It is the Magazine whence all draw their facts and illustrations; a monument of learning, industry, comprehensiveness, and arrangement."'--Latham.
“In this astonishing work a whole family of languages las for the first time found an expositor, and as it were an historiographer, placed on the summit of the comparative linguistic analysis of our age. Grimm's Teutonic Grammar comprehends the Scandinavian as well as the German languages in all their ramifications, reduces each of them to its most ancient forms, and follows it down from that point through the whole course of its development: this colossal work forms an epoch in ethnological history.”—The Chevalier

1837 "The interest of the poem of Boewulf is not confined to the Philologist : it also interests the antiquary and the bistorian in a very high degree. In it we have the most lively sketches of a state of society, which our imagination could never have pictured to us without it, and we have contemporary illustrations of manners and customs, which will solve a host of doubtful questions. We never in our life met with a poem so full of beautiful and striking
passages as the Romance of Beowulf." 7144 BOSWORTH'S (J.) Elements of Anglo-Saxon Grammar, with
