The Textbook Section for Latin Textbooks

There are several hundred books listed in the textbook section. Select a sequence to review a list of the courses and textbooks for that sequence. You may browse through the entire section if you want to see all our text choices by clicking on "Textbooks", but please be aware that this may take significant time to load and you must be patient.

Text titles in the list display link directly to Amazon's page for the work, or to an alternate source if the item is not available from Amazon. On full screen devices, you can also browse sections or the entire book store in "cover" mode, which will display the textbook cover and range of prices for copies available through Amazon.

During the early part of the calendar year, the bookstore may list textbooks for courses from both the current academic year, and the upcoming summer and fall academic years. Not all textbooks will be listed until teachers approve course descriptions and select their books. Be sure that you order books for the correct enrollment year.


Textbooks for both Summer and Academic Year 2017 Courses

Courses in Latin
 
Latin I • [2017] Bruce McMenomy
  Required Wheelock's Latin, Seventh Edition
Wheelock Frederick M., LaFleur Richard A.
  Required Workbook for Wheelock's Latin, 3rd Edition, Revised (Paperback)
Paul T. Comeau, Richard A. LaFleur

Students must have a new, entirely unmarked copy of this workbook for their own personal use.
  Optional A Comprehensive Guide to Wheelock's Latin: Newly Revised for Wheelock's 6th Edition
Dale A. Grote

Optional: Dr. Grote's extended descriptions and notes on Wheelock's Latin have been out there for many years now, and many students find his clear and thorough explanations a useful supplement to the basic textbook.
  Optional Vocabulary Cards and Grammatical Forms Summary for Wheelock's Latin
Richard A. LaFleur, Brad Tillery

Optional: the real benefits of making vocabulary cards for yourself may be outweighed by the possibility that you simply won't do so. If that's likely, you may want to invest in these.

Latin Tutorial - Summer • [2017] Emily Marie Gassman
No texts are listed for this course at this time.


Latin Tutorial • [2017] Mattias Gassman
  Required Wheelock's Latin, Seventh Revised Ed.
Frederic M. Wheelock, Richard A. LaFleur

Other books may be added as arranged with each student.

Latin II • [2017] Bruce McMenomy
  Required Wheelock's Latin, Seventh Revised Ed.
Frederic M. Wheelock, Richard A. LaFleur

(Earlier notes relating to the sixth edition are irrelevant now, since everyone should have started with the seventh edition in Latin I.)
  Required Workbook for Wheelock's Latin, 3rd Edition
Paul T. Comeau, Richard A. LaFleur

This is the version of the workbook selected to go with the edition with which the student began: most students should already have their own personal copy, with the chapters for this course unmarked.
  Optional A Comprehensive Guide to Wheelock's Latin: Newly Revised for Wheelock's 6th Edition
Dale A. Grote

Optional: Dr. Grote's extended descriptions and notes on Wheelock's Latin have been out there for many years now, and many students find his clear and thorough explanations a useful supplement to the basic textbook.
  Optional Vocabulary Cards and Grammatical Forms Summary for Wheelock's Latin
Richard A. LaFleur, Brad Tillery

Optional: the real benefits of making vocabulary cards for yourself may be outweighed by the possibility that you simply won't do so. If that's likely, you may want to invest in these.

Accelerated Latin I-II • [2017] Bruce McMenomy
  Required Wheelock's Latin, Seventh Edition
Frederick M. Wheelock, Richard A. Lafleur
  Optional Vocabulary Cards and Grammatical Forms Summary for Wheelock's Latin
Richard A. LaFleur, Brad Tillery

Optional: the real benefits of making vocabulary cards for yourself may be outweighed by the possibility that you simply won't do so. If that's likely, you may want to invest in these.

Latin III • [2017] Bruce McMenomy
  Required Aeneas to Augustus
Mason Hammond, Anne Amory
  Required Ancient Rome: An Introductory History
Paul A. Zoch
  Required Handbook to Life in Ancient Rome
Lesley Adkins, Roy A. Adkins
  Required Syntactical Mechanics
Bruce A. McMenomy

Latin IV (Caesar and Vergil) • [2017] Bruce McMenomy
  Required Caesar: Selections from his Commentarii De Bello Gallico
Hans-Friedrich Mueller, G. Julius Caesar
  Required Syntactical Mechanics
Bruce A. McMenomy

This book is also required for Latin III, so continuing students will already have a copy.
  Required Vergil's Aeneid: Expanded Collection
P. Vergilius Maro, Barbara W. Boyd

This OR the other Aeneid edition is required. I've listed this one as required because it's less expensive and more comprehensive. Do not feel obliged to buy this one, however, if you've already acquired the other.
  Required Why Vergil?: A Collection of Interpretations
Stephanie Quinn
  Optional Vergil's Aeneid: Selected Readings from Books 1, 2, 4, and 6
Barbara W. Boyd, P. Vergilius Maro

SOME version of this text is necessary, and it has to contain the lines required (the older Boyd version does not). On the other hand, the price of this has gone through the roof, and it has been replaced in the Bolchazy-Carducci lineup with the Aeneid Expanded Collection, which I've also listed here, for a much more reasonable price.

Latin V (Latin Literature) • [2017] Bruce McMenomy
  Required Allen and Greenough's New Latin Grammar
J. B. Greenough, G. L. Kittredge, A. A. Howard, Benj. L. D'Ooge, Anne Mahoney

The hardbound copy may be substituted
  Required Horace: Selected Odes and Satire
Q. Horatius Flaccus, Ronnie Ancona
  Required Writing Passion: A Catullus Reader
C. Valerius Catullus, Ronnie Ancona
  Optional Collins Gem Latin Dictionary : Second Edition
D. A. Kidd

Some satisfactory Latin dictionary is required. This is probably the cheapest for the coverage it provides. It will not replace the larger research dictionaries, but at the same time it is only a fraction of the price.
  Optional Latin Dictionary Founded on Andrew's Edition of Freund's Latin Dictionary
Charlton T. Lewis, Charles Short, William Freund

This is one of the larger (and more expensive) dictionaries available for serious Latinists. Unlike the larger and more recent Oxford Latin Dictionary, its range extends up to about 600 A. D., and so is more useful for those interested in Mediaeval Latin. Definitely not required, though some suitable dictionary is required.
  Optional Oxford Latin Dictionary
P. G. W. Glare

Emphatically not required, this is probably the most comprehensive Classical Latin dictionary avaiable in English today; it is also the most expensive. Its coverage does not extend much beyond A.D. 200, however, and so it is probably not as useful as Lewis and Short for those who want to pursue later Latin.
