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.
Or select another textbook area:

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.

|Latin IV (Caesar and Vergil) •  Bruce McMenomy|
||Caesar: Selections from his Commentarii De Bello Gallico [Any edition]|
Hans-Friedrich Mueller, G. Julius Caesar
Prices on this have fluctuated severely over the last few years. It should be around $45. If it goes skyrocketing from there, let me know via email and we'll come up with some alternative solution. If Amazon is tweaking the prices unreasonably, check into the option directly from the publisher here: http://www.bolchazy.com/Caesar-Selections-from-his-Commentarii-De-Bello-Gallico-P3161.aspx
||Syntactical Mechanics [Edition required: 1]|
Bruce A. McMenomy
This book is also required for Latin III, so continuing students will already have a copy.
||The Landmark Julius Caesar: The Complete Works: Gallic War, Civil War, Alexandrian War, African War, and Spanish War [Edition required: 1]|
C. Julius Caesar, Kurt A. Raaflalaub (ed.), Robert B. Strassler (series editor)
This is a magnificent book and a bargain for what it contains. If it's prohibitive, please let me know. I would permit another translation of Caesar's text, but this edition supplies a great deal of supporting information that will make the shape of Caesar's campaigns vastly more accessible. In either case I will be assigning readings from the accompanying web document (which is available freely to all) — which contains about 325 pages of material that wouldn't fit into the book itself.
||Vergil's Aeneid: Expanded Collection [Any edition]|
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.
||Why Vergil?: A Collection of Interpretations [Any edition]|
|Medieval Latin •  Bruce McMenomy|
