Earth-holding Poseidon, the Earth-Shaker

I trust all our fellow textkitters in California are well?

(Hesiod really does call Poseidon by both names on l.15 of the Theogony.)

I have been looking for public domain copies of several important keys. At this point, I don't think a key will be found inside the United States and I'm reaching out for some help.

Key to Latin Prose Composition, North and Hillard
Key to Greek Prose Composition, Arthur Sidgwick
Key to A First Greek Course, Sir William Smith

Photos of Textkit's books

If you're curious to know what these books actually look like and what other books we have on hand - here are several photos of the Textkit books. You'll also see on the top and bottom shelves all of the photocopies made.

This isn't all the books, some are around the house, others were returned, sold, borrowed from libraries and/or mailed in to us by photocopy.

Sancta nox, placida nox

Though I'm not a christian, I like those lovely carrols. And here's one I like best to sing in German. And it's a latin version so as to fit in textkit forum. :)

h( grafi/s

Every single text that appears on aoidoi.org goes through preparation twice. The second round of course is all on the computer, and is probably the most tedious.

The first round of preparation goes through my standard treatment for all texts I read in the trickier literary languages, Greek, Latin should I ever commit to juming into the Metamorphosis, Sanskrit, Chinese, ktl.. I grab a large format notebook (by preference the Avery Dennison 43-581, 8x11in college ...

Intratext

yet another collection of Latin texts, including some really quite obscure ones.

http://www.intratext.com/LAT/

A cool feature of this one is that it has a concordance. Click on a word, and it will show you all the other times that word is used and its context in the same work.

Unfortunately it doesn't have a parser. So if you look up for example paucos, you'll only see examples of paucos ...

A Walrus Called Shagbat

This topic is not related with Greek or Latin, but, as this board is open...

During WWII, the British FAA used the Supermarine Walrus three/four seats single-engined biplane amphibian aircraft (How do you say that with a single German word?) for SAR missions. This aircraft was dubbed a "Shagbat" by his crews.
