PREFACE

THE basis of selection in this book has been the fitness of the passages to test, and to increase by exercise, a young student's power to read Latin. Accordingly, passages have been chosen in which the difficulties are fairly typical, — difficulties of syntax, order, and vocabulary, not those that arise from peculiarity of subject-matter, mannerism of style, or the less usual divergences of idiom.

Since the book is not intended as a substitute for any part of the texts usually read in schools, nothing has been taken from Caesar's Gallic War, the Lives of Nepos, Sallust's Catiline, or the orations of Cicero commonly included in school editions. It will naturally find its use in the later years of a college preparatory course in reading exercises under a teacher's direction, or in written tests; therefore no vocabulary is added, and only a necessary minimum of notes.

Grateful acknowledgment is due to the editors of this series for criticism and assistance in the reading of the proof sheets.
