More About This Book

Overview

Phoenician Captain Mago is instructed by King David to go on a voyage to bring back precious building materials for the temple in Jerusalem. In his adventures Captain Mago travels to Egypt, Crete, Italy, Iberia and past the Pillars of Hercules into the unkown where the world is said to end.

From the Preface: For children who like fairy stories and romance, who like to read of sea-fights and adventure, this account of "The Adventures of Captain Mago" has been translated into excellent Latin by Dr. Arcadius Avellanus, and my advice to those who take the book up, is - don't turn the reading into work. The Latin is not very difficult. Some of the descriptions may not be easy, but descriptions can be passed over and the action is not hard to follow. After reading a few pages in this manner you will be surprised to find that the book can be read for the sake of the story; go a little further and forms and rules which were hard to learn from the grammar will have concrete meaning and a familiar air. Long before the end you will like Latin and will begin to find class-room work much easier.

Difficult terms are explained in a glossary in English and German.
