In some of my spare time I try and track down obscure Latin and Greek books. Particularly I've been trying to gather information and texts relating to WHD Rouse and the direct-method revival around that time that seems to have arisen (and then been swamped). Anyway, Appleton and Jones produced a number of Latin materials at the time, similar in scope to Rouse's "A Greek Boy at Home", from what I can tell. I've just located one of them, "Puer Romanus" which may be of interest to some:
I'm working on tracking down a few others from libraries and the like. I am continually amazed at this teachers from early last century, their skill, insight, and dedication, and it seems a terrible waste that fine pedagogical texts disappear. Thanks to the internet for saving some of them!
