Fowle: First Easy Latin Reading Book - Roman History
First Easy Latin Reading Book - Roman History, by Edmund Fowle (1877)
This is the third part of Fowle's "First Easy Latin Reading Book," following the Aesop's Fables and the Anecdotes which I posted about earlier. Although it is entitled "Roman History," it might be better titled "Roman Mythology." Fowle quickly describes Saturn, and then Aeneas and Ascanius, followed by a detailed account of Romulus and Remus. As with the other two parts of this Reader series, the Latin texts are presented on their own, followed by a presentation with notes, as well as specialized vocabulary lists for each reading plus a general vocabulary.
