This book is intended for anyone who has studied Latin for at least two years, and is interested in beginning to read the Roman authors. This selection of 12 letters includes a simplified version (or tier) of each letter, along with a complete Latin-English glossary. This edition will be especially useful for upper-level high school, and introductory college Latin courses in Roman literature and/or ancient philosophy.
