How many versions of D'Ooge?

I have a Super Review reprint of D'Ooge that seems quite different from the one online here: ... 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.

You can find the original version in a beautiful pdf on for free. No need to pay for it.

Someone did a re-set of it a few years back, and published it, but it is the same book.

There is also an audio-book of the original edition, available at latinum (see below), which I charge for, to generate funds to run Schola (which costs me around USD $300 per annum to run) and other Latin-related projects.

Much of my output is also available for free on YouTube.
