BC Latin Readers, series
(Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers, 2009 and ongoing)


This new advanced Latin textbook series from Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers will provide well annotated Latin selections to be used as authoritative introductions to Latin authors, genres, or topics, for intermediate or advanced college Latin study. Their relatively small size (covering 500–600 lines) makes them ideal to use in combination. Each volume includes a comprehensive introduction, bibliography for further reading, Latin text with notes at the back, and complete vocabulary. Nineteen volumes are scheduled for publication; others are under consideration. Each volume will be edited by distinguished classics scholars teaching in the US, Canada, the UK, and Australia. Included is Craig Williams (Professor, Brooklyn, Classics), who is writing the textbook on Martial. Four volumes have appeared, on Lucan, Terence, Sallust, and Plautus (seen here). The Plautus volume has an online metrically marked version of the Latin text that can be used for reading aloud or performance purposes. Ronnie Ancona (Hunter), the series editor, is a professor of classics at the Graduate Center. For more information, see
