Annotation 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
Over 8,000 traditional and attributed passages are presented alphabetically within sections of proverbs and maxims, mottoes and phrases, and familiar quotations. They come not only from antique and classical Rome, but also from Medieval and Renaissance periods. An alphabetical list of authors quoted notes their dates and genres. The select English-Latin index cites phrases, but clumsy proramming has caused the sort to bring together entries beginning with words such as A, Of, The, and To.
