Bellum Helveticum

Excerpt from Bellum Helveticum: A Beginner's Book in Latin The experience of many teachers has proved the excellence of Bellum Helveticum. It has been found interesting and stimulating to both teachers and classes during the actual time of using the book; and the advantage of using it appears still more clearly when the student advances to his second year's work. The chasm between the beginner's book and Caesar does not exist when the student has been reading Caesar from almost his first lesson in Latin. But these teachers have suggested many improvements which have led to the revision and rearrangement of the book. Furthermore, since the last edition, Professor Lodge's studies in vocabulary and Mr. Byrne's studies in syntax have appeared, and these have been used as a basis in the present edition. The leading features of the present revision are: First: The text of Chapters 1 - 3 of Caesar's Gallic War is given in simplified form, Chapters 4 - 14 in both simplified and original form, and Chapters 15 - 29 in the original form only. Caesar's great work presents a model of perfect Latinity, sufficiently simple in form and structure for the beginner, when it is taken slowly. It affords an illustration of the most important principles of the language, and prepares the pupil for a further study of Latin. Second: Sixteen lessons preliminary to the text have been given in order to inculcate a real knowledge of forms before the translation of the narrative is begun. Throughout the book practically no form or construction occurs in the text until it is understood by the pupil.
