THIS edition of Sallust's Work on the Conspiracy of Catiline has been prepared expressly for school use. As a part of a regular course of Latin study, it is intended to follow Caesar's Commentaries on the Gallic War, but to precede the Orations of Cicero.
In the preparation of the Notes, the editor has resorted freely to such sources of information as were within his reach; but he has endeavored to adapt his instructions to the special needs of the student during the more elementary stages of classical study. A learned commentary would be manifestly out of place in a school edition of Sallust.
The notes are not intended to interfere with that course of direct personal instruction which belongs exclusively to the living teacher, but rather to prepare the way for it. They aim to aid the student in surmounting real and untried difficulties of construction and idiom, and to furnish him such collateral information as will enable him to understand, appreciate, and enjoy his author. They are arranged topically in such a manner as to keep the general scope of thought as constantly as possible before his mind.
