Where to buy Latin texts

Postby whalenburns » Tue Oct 19, 2010 7:40 pm

Who can recommend a good website from which to order Latin texts with vocab and translation help and notes, like I used in high school for The Aeneid, Catullus, Ovid, Cicero, etc.? Surprisingly, Amazon didn't seem to have much of a selection, and several that I attempted to order were simply improperly described and were actually English translations solely.

Bolcharzy sells the type of thing you are after.

If you want free stuff, try archive.org or good old google books.
I run various Latin sites, including Schola and the Latinum YouTube channel - the main portal to these is http://latinum.org.uk

Bolchazy-Carducci: http://www.bolchazy.com/
R. Pullins/Focus Publishing: http://www.pullins.com/
Bristol Classical Press: http://www.ducknet.co.uk/academic/
The Cambridge "Green & Yellow" series

You might also take a look at JACT's Good Text Guide, which provides a list (searchable by author) of texts & commentaries which are available.

If you use an online site like amazon, abe, etc, generally the best way to make sure that the text you get is the one you want is to use the above resources and then search by ISBN rather than by title/author.
IPHIGENIE: Kann uns zum Vaterland die Fremde werden?
ARKAS: Und dir ist fremd das Vaterland geworden.
IPHIGENIE: Das ist's, warum mein blutend Herz nicht heilt.
(Goethe, Iphigenie auf Tauris)
