The work now offered to the public presents in a single volume a course of study in Latin Prose Authors, sufficiently extended to meet the requisites for admission to any American college. It contains four books of Cæsar's Commentaries on the Gallic War, the whole of Sallust's Catiline, and eight orations of Cicero. To the Latin text are added Notes, Illustrations, and a Special Dictionary, making the volume comparatively complete in itself. For the benefit, however, of those who prefer to have the different authors in separate volumes, the editions of Cæsar, Sallust, and Cicero, already issued in this series, will continue to be published.

The present work is intended to follow the Latin Reader. It accordingly assumes that the student is already familiar with the regular forms and the general principles of the language; that he has acquired, by actual experience, some facility in translating; and that he is now prepared to enter with success upon the consecutive study of a Latin classic. Starting from this point, it aims to conduct him to a higher knowledge of the power and use of the Latin tongue, and to introduce him to an appreciative study of a standard literary work.
