This second edition of Lhomond's elementary reader De Viris Illustribus is being presented here in a low-segmentation format to facilitate the practice of the individual acts of comprehension that can help establish reading mastery. It has been fully revised and corrected.

This text is based on public-domain material from the 1843 Nova Editio, De Viris Illustribus a Romulo ad Augustum, Auctore Lhomond in Universitate Parisiensi Professsore Emerito (Baltimore: The Baltimore Publishing Company).   It has been corrected with reference to Léonce Duval's expanded eighteenth edition of 1891, recommended and kindly provided by Vojin Nedeljkovic of the Classics Department, University of Belgrade. His website is Tolle, Lege!
