Lodge: Vocabulary of High School Latin
The Vocabulary of High School Latin by Gonzalez Lodge (1912)
Like Jenks' Manual of Latin Word Formation, this book is based on a very narrow selection of Latin reading materials: Caesar's Gallic War I-V; Cicero's speeches against Cataline, on Pompey's Command, and for the poet Archias; and Vergil's Aeneid, books I-VI. The words are presented in two different systems: they are arranged alphabetically in something like dictionary form with comments on usage and detailed citations, and then they are presented in running order that follows the text.
