Set books

I produce running vocabularies for set texts. They are sold at a fixed price and you print your copies from an electronic source. I have a huge back-list of nearly all the set-texts for the last twenty years, and a few more. Some students may want to read beyond the syllabus. Please enquire. May 2020 The new A Levels cost £33 and GCSEs £23. 2022-2023 I have finished Annals IV Group 1, Virgil Aeneid XII Group 3 and Group 4, Catullus Group 3, Pro Cluentio (Murder at Larinum) Group 1. I have finished Thucydides VI Group 1 and Group 2, Homer Odyssey 1 Group 3, Odyssey 6 Group 4 and am starting on Ajax, and will move onto to Symposium Group 1. 2020-2021 For GCSE I have finished the GCSE Aeneid 2 prescription, the IGCSE Aeneid VI prescription, Iliad 3, Tales from Herodotus (Ethiopians, Power of Custom). For Groups 2 and 4 Latin I have finished Aeneid XI Group 4, Tacitus Histories I Group 2, Horace Odes III, Ovid Amores Group 4, Cicero Philippics II Group 2. I don’t intend to do the Apuleius. For Groups 2 and 4 Greek I have finished Medea Group 4 (an interlaced Group 3 and Group 4 is available), Homer Iliad IX, Herodotus 7 Group 2, Phaedo Group 2. I don’t have time for the Xenophon or Aristophanes. For Groups 1 and 3 Latin I have Aeneid XI Group 3, Tacitus: Histories 1 Group 1, Horace Satires, Philippics II Group 1. For Groups 1 and 3 Greek I have Iliad XVIII Group 3, Phaedo Group 1, Medea Group 3, Herodotus 7 Group 1.
