Aeneas to Augustus

Aeneas to Augustus

A Beginning Latin Reader for College Students, Second Edition

Mason Hammond, Anne Amory

ISBN 9780674006003

Publication date: 07/10/1967

This reader consists of 90 selections illustrating the history of Rome from the myth of Aeneas to the founding of the Augustan Principate. The selections have been chosen with three aims in mind: gradual increase in length and difficulty, continuity of subject matter, and stylistic variety. Historical background is provided in the prefaces to the selections. The updated letterpress edition is more convenient to use than its predecessor of 1962. The notes have been extensively revised and the vocabulary has been newly compiled.
