Our customer reviews
I regard this book to be an essential text for anyone making a serious study of Latin. It is an essential companion to any Latin textbook (I'm using Wheelock's Latin). I have found this text to be an excellent quick-reference source when writing Latin compositions. It is an essential text, particularly to those who were not taught English grammar in school.show moreby Martin Hartley
