VIRIS ILLUSTRIBUS URBIS ROMAE:
Being a Latin Reading-Book, with Notes and a Vocabulary. “De Viris Illustribus" contains a chronologically arranged and connected series o graphic tableaux of Roman History, framed on the model of the “Lives" of “Cornelius Nepos." The pieces are adapted, as regards both subject matter and language, to the earlier stages of Latin reading, and drawn from precisely the same sources as those to which the student is accustomed, at a later period, to betake himself.
The more interesting events of the grand epochs of the territorial enlargement and political growth of Rowe are grouped around the men who played a prominent part in public affairs, from the foundation of the city to the death of Augustus. The work, therefore, embraces accounts of the Equian and Volscian wars; Gallic invasion; Samnite and Epirote wars; Punic wars; Macedonian, Spanish, and Servile wars; the Cimbrian, Social, Mithridatic and later Civil wars.

“ We can hardly name one of Mr. Laurie's useful publications in which he seems to us t have done better service to the cause of elementary education than in this one, which is s well calculated to excite the most tenderly budding imagination, and call the opening afections into play. Mr. Murby, also, has done his part well, not only in preserving rany traditional airs, but in adapting and composing others, which are at once har ronious and appropriate."— Museum, Oct. 1862.
