A reprint of German schoolmaster Johann Franz Ahn's popular language textbook, with a 'Caution' printed to the verso of the half-title advising against spurious, unauthorised editions of his work. Ahn also adapted his new, practical easy method to produce guides to Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese. This edition is unknown to Library Hub and Worldcat, both of which record multiple similar editions from the 1850s to 1870s, usually in single copies.
