How many versions of D'Ooge?

Postby pster » Sat Feb 15, 2014 2:15 pm

I have a Super Review reprint of D'Ooge that seems quite different from the one online here: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/18251/18 ... html#pagev

How many versions of D'Ooge are there? Can anybody fill me in on the history? I can't find any discussion of a second edition, yet the differences seem rather big.

It's not the same book.

'Super Review' is a reprint of D'Ooge's Elements of Latin (1921) (for which, incidentally, there is a Key). Latin for Beginners is from 1909/1911.

Don't expect those Super Review folks to divulge their sources. They just slap a copyright label onto whatever they grab from Internet Archive for free and pass it off as their own. In today's world, only money counts. Except for a few remaining Internet idealists.
