Description

If you studied Latin at school this will bring back fond memories, but even newcomers will be captivated by this witty and entertaining book.

The majority of pages are undamaged with some creasing or tearing, and pencil underlining of text, but this is minimal.A book leaves our collection of over seven million titles and begins a new chapter every two seconds, enabling more goods to be reused. If you know someone who missed out on Latin at school and wants to live a happier life, you could do no better than give them Harry Mount's entertainingly educative Latin primer. Excudent alii spirantia morleus aera, credo equident vivos ducent de marmore voltus” was part of a Latin poem we were taught.

This seller has been dependable and prompt for multiple transactions now, furthering my trust in them. In tudor England, Henry VIII read Cicero's On duty in latin at 11 years old, and Elizabeth I translated latin for pleasure.once put into context with the rest of the sentences around it, it translates a bit like this: others, i believe truly, shall with softer mould beat out the breathing bronze, coax from the marble features to the life. Cannily bringing in the usual jokey Latinist suspects, from Willans and Searle's Molesworth to John Cleese's irate centurion-cum-schoolmaster in The Life of Brian, Mount makes a good case for knowing a little Latin.

And it expanded my English Vocabulary enormously…plus it made me able to figure out the meaning of words if they had a Latin Root….The full thing goes like this: Louise: “Why didn’t ya let me know you were coming I’d have met you off the train.
