Chickering & Hoadley: Beginners' Latin by the Direct Method
Beginners' Latin by the Direct Method by Edward Conner Chickering and Harwood Hoadley (1914)
Although this is not an all-Latin approach like in Hans Oerberg's textbooks, it has a great deal in common with that approach, with extended continuous readings beginning in the first lesson. The nouns are presented by cases, not by declensions, and the verbs by mood and tense, not by conjugations. The text is marked with macrons throughout.
