FROM THE BEST
REV. EDMUND FOWLE
FIRST EASY LATIN READING BOOK' 'SECOND EAST LATIN READING BOOK'
REV. WALTER E. WHITAKER, B.A.
LATE SCHOLAR OF BRASENOSE COLLEGE, OXFORD
KEY TO SELECTIONS
FOR THE USE OF TUTORS ONLY.
To be had of the Author, Amesbury House, Bickley, Kent.
I HARDLY dare refer to my promise, made so long ago as 1873, of giving to the public a Third Latin Reading Book; but heavy work connected with my school, and the preparation of many other educational books, have prevented me from fulfilling this promise earlier. At last, however, I offer my Selections from the best Latin Authors, with every hope that the book will be welcomed in all those schools where my other books are used.
The selection has been most carefully made, and other ready help has been given, by my friend the Rev. W. E. Whitaker, Holcombe Rectory, Bath, whose name appears on the title-page. It will be found that most of the better known pieces have been omitted, so that the book may be used without much fear of clashing with others of the same kind.
No particular order has been observed in the arrangement of the Selections; the master will look out those pieces which he thinks best calculated for the pupil or class he is teaching. Messrs. Longman have kindly acceded to my request that the book should be brought out in separate parts at 18. 6d. each, as well as in one volume at 2s. 6d.
