Oxford Clarendon Press 1966 0198119224 / 9780198119227 Second Edition Hardcover Very Good+ with no dust jacket 
Minor shelfwear. ; 383 pages; The author of several Old English and Old High German primers and grammars, Joseph Wright wrote the present book as an alternative to revising his earlier Gothic Primer for a third edition. The Grammar provides a comprehensive knowledge of Gothic and understanding of comparative Germanic grammar, essential to anyone studying the ancient Germanic languages. By way of readings, the book provides the Greek texts of the gospels of St matthew (Chapter VI) and St. Luke (Chapter XV) along with the Gothic translations by Ulfilas (AD 311-383) , bishop of the Goths. Interesting for students of comparative philology. A knowledge of Gothic is indispensable to students of the oldest periods of other Germanic languages, this book will be of interest to students whose interests are mainly philological and linguistic. This Grammar provides a comprehensive knowledge of Gothic and an understanding of comparative Germanic grammar. If Wulfila had not translated the very Bible into Gothic, we wouldn't have today any tangible hint of the existence of this early Germanic language.
