Excerpt from Scenes From the Life of Hannibal: Selection From Livy

The order of events in Livy has not always been followed, and considerable modifications in the text have been sometimes necessary to render it suitable for beginners. It is hoped that this disadvantage will be counterbalanced by the attraction that the character of the hero will have for its readers.

With the same object the notes are full and explanatory, but rather in construction than in translation.

Continual reference is made to the very useful and comprehensive Clarendon Press Elementary Latin Grammar by Mr. Allen.

A special index with short accounts of proper names has been added to facilitate speedy reference.

The English Exercises are based on the Latin text, and provide one easy and one slightly more advanced exercise on each section.

I should like to offer in conclusion my hearty thanks to the reader of the Clarendon Press for the many valuable suggestions which he has made.
