Future SVR Sodales

Postby Primus Aurelius Timavus on Mon Aug 29, 2005 5:45 pm

Just an announcement that my wife gave birth to our first daughter on Friday. Both mother and baby are doing very well. Senna now joins Sebastian and Augustus on the rolls as future Sodales.

Vobis gratias ago, Attice et Martialis.

My wife and I used to study in London, by the way, she at Middlesex and I at London Business School, and I worked in the City for a short time, so we have a soft spot for Londinium.

More Romans!!!

Postby Aldus Marius on Sun Sep 04, 2005 9:42 am

Te gratulor, mi Tergeste!!

I have a reading-List of 'Books to Raise Young Romans By'; Labienus has the books themselves, having been in your position a few years back. Would you like me to e-mail you the List? If so, would you like it now or when she's a little older? >({|;-)

In amicitia,
Aldus Marius Peregrinus.

Sic. Tibi gratias ago, mi Mari. I would like the list now because I have two slightly older sons who love to look at pictures in children's versions of classic books. I may be able to find the books on the list in such versions. Aesop is already a favorite!

Roman Childrens' Booklist

Postby Aldus Marius on Tue Sep 06, 2005 8:30 am

Salve, mi Tergeste...

I'll post the list here, as other Romani may want the information.

Warning: These are only the raw titles; I originally made the list as a packing-slip, just so I wouldn't forget which books I had lent out. I didn't note the publication info at the time. Most of them are out of print, one for over a century. It took me 15 years to find them all; and even so I haven't listed all the Roman books for kids that I'd recommend, only the ones I shipped to Labienus' house. Your best bet for any of these is either to become a pest at your local used-book outlet...or find them at the Library.

I have found that you can get (almost) anything used through Amazon or one of their affiliated merchants. Materials arrive clean, well-packed and in great condition; I've been reunited with two very long-lost favorites that way, one of which I last set eyeballs on in 1987!

If you absolutely must get the Author, Publisher et cetera, and they refuse to turn up in a title search, PM me and I'll ask Titus Labienus to take a peek. >({|:-)

Enjoy...!
