LLPSI readers list

Postby Jandar » Tue Jan 14, 2014 11:48 pm

I was searching for readers compatable with the 'Lingua Latina per se Illustrata' series (apart from the ones listed on http://focusbookstore.com/lingualatina.aspx) and I stumbled accross:

Tibulli Elegiae, Bucolica Carmina and De Rerum Natura

(the latter two mentioned on http://www.culturaclasica.com/lingualatina/libros.htm, bottom of the list. Those two appear not to be available at amazon.com, only at some Italian and east-European webstores.)

Judging from the available sample pages, all three books are completely in LLPSI style. Each of them is intended to be readable at roughly cap.45 of Roma Aeterna.
I find it somewhat strange that they are not even mentioned on the LLPSI site.

As I only found these three by mere accident, I was wandering if there somewhere exists a list of ALL compatible books? Is there some community aiming to write more books in this style, or is it just coincidence that these 3 all appeared within a span of a few years?

I've come across some of these new books simply by chance or by word-of-mouth. There are many supplements but I'm always finding new ones.

Off the top of my head, there are:

LL1
LL2
Colloquial personarum
Fabulae Syrae
Fabellae Latinae
Epitome Historiae Sacrae
Sermones Romani
Cena Trimalchionis
Amphitryo Comoedia
Aeneis
Ars Amatoria
Catalina
Commentarii De Bello Gallico....

Anything else?

I'd heard of the last two from your list 'Tibulli Elegiae, Bucolica Carmina and De Rerum Natura'.

Hopefully others have more information.

Vita moresque by Luigi Miraglia should be one too.

And what are these 'Latine disco' books? Anybody picked them up?

Hm, yes, I had noted Vita moresque by Luigi Miraglia: but most booksites show an incorrect cover (the one of Familia Romana; the correct one is http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/71pIuGkxOtL.jpg) and most sites also qualify this book as 'Italian', so I dismissed it at first.
But indeed it is in latin :D. Some information about it is included in http://vivariumnovum.net/files/mercurius1.pdf (page 13, in Latin).

'Latine disco' is just a short commentary in English on each chapter of Familia Romana, see http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/1585100 ... eader-link
More or less the same information is also included in the College compendium http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/1585101 ... eader-link
You'll probably don't want both.

A Dutch teacher (Casper Porton) is currently preparing a new reader in LLPSI style: Metamorphoses (Ovidius). This can still take some time though.

I was wrong there. The book is in Italian.
