'Latin Classics'
Note from 'Books Read and Study Made' chapter from 'Memoirs Of My Life And Writing' by Gibbon

JOURNAL, January 1756. — I determined to read over the Latin authors in order; and read this year, Virgil, Sallust, Livy, Velleius Paterculus, Valerius Maximus, Tacitus, Suetonius, Quintus Curtius, Justin, Florus, Plautus, Terence, and Lucretius. I also read and meditated Locke upon the Understanding.
