This is a short selection of Latin texts from Livy I, intended for students of the language who are beyond the point of reading simple sentences but not yet able to fully digest more complex texts. Half the book consists of notes and vocabulary, so it's of great help to the student. It's a very nice little textbook, and it served me well in my Latin classes in college.
