Title was the standard introduction to study of Latin; Shaw & Shoemaker reported this title with a short addendum with separate title page, Prosody of the Latin language (1816.050), as one complete item; survival of separated copies indicates that Cottom sold each separately; yet the Early American Imprints Series filmed combined copy noted by Shaw & Shoemaker, so also conflating the two titles. In 1816, Cottom employed the job-press of John M. & David Burke to print items for sale in his stores, including a new one in Lynchburg; the Burke brothers conducted the remnants of the press office of the late Samuel Pleasants, which collapsed financially in January 1817.
