Berlin, 1869 Two parts of this edition have appeared. “ The Deutsche Grammatik of Grimm is the work not of an age, nor of a century, but like the great history of the Athenian, krņun sis der. 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

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.
