Summary
"This book is aimed at all who would like to be able to read Latin epitaphs in churches and elsewhere, but whose knowledge of the language may be sketchy. The introduction explains the convention involved in lettering, abbreviations, Latinized personal names, and stock phrases. It is followed by a very brief Latin grammar and notes on Roman numerals and dates. At the back of the book there is a wordlist containing all those words found in the inscriptions, with numbered references, plus a section of words which are commonly found in inscriptions elsewhere."--[P. i]
