With a vocabulary extended to include all words used by Catullus, Tibullus, Propertius, and Tacitus, as well as those used by Terence, Caesar, Sallust, Cicero, Livy, Nepos, Virgil, Horace, Ovid, Juvenal, Phaedrus, and Curtius, this abridgement of Lewis's Latin Dictionary for Schools excludes proper names and detailed references to books and passages, and limits illustrative citations.
This is substantially an abridgment of the author's' Latin Dictionary for Schools'. The vocabulary has been extended to include all words used by Catullus, Tibullus, Propertius, and Tacitus. On the other hand, space has been saved by the omission of all detailed references to books and passages, only the name of the writer being indicated as authority for each word or phrase; and by limiting the illustrative citations to those which are typical or peculiarly instructive.
