Excerpt from Selections From Lhomond's Urbis Romae Viri Inlustres
Toward the end of the first year of the preparatory course in Latin there is often felt a need of a limited amount of text simple enough to fill the gap between the beginners' book and the work of the second ye... ar. Such a need this book under takes to fill. It does not aim to compete with the admirable editions of the same text recently made for those who can a¿ord to devote more than a few weeks to reading matter of this kind. The four biographies selected comprise about thirty pages, or the equivalent of a book of Caesar's Gallic War, the amount recommended by several committees which have recently considered the subject of preparatory work in Latin.
At this stage of his progress it is assumed that the pupil has mastered the ordinary forms and simpler constructions of the language, but still needs much detailed instructions on the more difficult points. References to the grammars most widely used have been freely given, and whenever it seemed necessary or convenient grammatical information has been incorporated in the notes. While the editor cannot endorse the dictum that such material should be called to a pupil's attention only when he mistranslates the text, he feels sure no reasonable teacher will require a pupil to master all the principles referred to. At any rate, no pupil will do so, and his attention should, therefore, be directed especially to those which he most needs.vi preface.
