Originally published in 1925, this book presents a series of passages intended for translation by advanced students of German. The passages were chosen 'so as to afford as wide a range of style and vocabulary as possible' and cover a variety of German literature. With the exception of the last ten extracts, which give examples of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century German writers, all the authors represented wrote later than 1750. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the German language, translation studies and the history of education.
