These readers, written by experts in the field, provide well annotated Latin selections to be used as authoritative introductions to Latin authors, genres, or topics, for intermediate or advanced college Latin study. Their relatively small size (covering 500-600 lines) makes them ideal to use in combination.
Each volume in the nineteen-volume series includes a comprehensive introduction, bibliography for further reading, Latin text with notes at the back, and complete vocabulary.
