Civis Romanus is a graded Latin reader for beginning Latin students. The memorable stories that grew from the civilization of ancient Rome are the basis of the Latin passages in this reader. New grammar is assumed in odd-numbered passages only and thus the teacher who wishes to proceed more quickly through the text may skip the even-numbered readings. In Civis Romanus students read about actual people and events while honing their Latin grammatical and syntactical skills and increasing their Latin vocabulary. . Students who finish this reader in beginning Latin (Latin 1 and 2 at the high school level) will have acquired a minimum vocabulary of 1,000 words.
Features
New introduction by Marianthe Colakis
60 passages of graded Latin readings of graduated length (from 120 to 300 words, beginning with macrons and later without macrons)
Readings on legends (including Romulus and Remus, Camilla, Scaevola, Manlius), political personalities (including Cincinnatus, Appius Claudius, the Gracchi), daily life (including Horace, Cato, Cicero's son), historical figures (including Caesar, Augustus, Agricola), and famous events (including the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, the conquest of Britain).

About the Author:

Cobban was born in Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire. He was granted a scholarship to Jesus College, Cambridge, where he read Classics. Cobban received a double first in the Classical Tripos examinations, receiving the Thirwell Medal and Gladstone Prize. Cobban continued his education at the University of Vienna in 1932, where he witnessed a Jewish student being chased by a gang of young Nazis wielding cudgels, an experience which Cobban described in his memoir as "seared in my mind".
In 1933, Cobban took a position teaching Latin and Greek at King Edward VI School, Southampton. While there, he wrote a Latin reader, Civis Romanus. In 1936 he took a post at Dulwich College, where he worked until the outbreak of the Second World War. During the war, Cobban served with the Directorate of Military Intelligence and rose to the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel. Much of Cobban's responsibilities before and after the invasion were in planning for the occupation of Germany. When that became a reality, Cobban was assigned to help organise local governments in Germany on a democratic basis.
