Roman history in Latin readings sustained by English prefaces and generous annotation, Aeneas to Augustus is paper-bound and lithographed from typescript while practice tests its effectiveness. Prose (Part I) and poetry (Part II)--each Part a term's work with a full historic span--may be alternated during a year's course without losing continuity. Latin readings approximate a class hour's needs; each Part forms a sequence of graduated complexity; a vocabulary is included; and literary and linguistic annotations will interest both beginning and advanced students.
