Smith: Principia Latina

Principia Latina II by William Smith (1861)

The reading begins with fables, followed by anecdotes of famous persons, mythological narratives, and then a geography, and finally Roman history. This is a very clear and simple presentation of Jacobs, with the notes nicely done in two columns and a comprehensive vocabulary in the back. There is also a timeline of Roman history starting on p. 162.
