Now in the public domain, Latin for Beginners, by Benjamin L. D’ooge, Ph.D. was originally published in 1909. The Centurion Edition celebrates the 100th anniversary of the publication of the Latin classic.
The text has been retypeset and formatted. All the original illustrations and plates have been included (in black and white). While great effort has been made to remain faithful to the original published work, some formatting changes were necessary. Special vocabularies have been moved from the appendix and placed with their respective lessons. Exercises have been reformatted from paragraphs into numbered lists. Some of the irregular verb forms are now located in the lesson material in addition to the appendix. A new index has been generated. As a bonus, included after the reading material, is the ballad of Horatius from The Lays of Rome by Thomas Babbington Macaulay. As this was a classroom text, no answer key was (or is) included with the book.
