Considerable care and troublehave been taken in the selection of the material contained in the chaptersrelating to the phonology and accidence, and I venture to say that the student,who thoroughly masters the book, will not only have gained a comprehensiveknowledge of Gothic, but will also have aquired a considerable knowledge ofComparative Germanic Grammar.
