By the kind permission of the Mrs. Platts, I have been enabled to prepare this new edition of the late Mr. Platts's Persian Grammar. In carrying out this work, it has been my object to make as few changes as possible in the arrangements, and to depart as little as was consistent with what experience has shown to be necessary from the original scheme of the late author. I have felt the liberty to follow my own inclinations in the preparation of the portion of this work which deals with the syntax of Persian.
