Roger Pearse's Pages
Thanks for visiting this site. There's no theme
to the subjects discussed below, except that I'm interested in
them and think maybe someone else might be too, or for some
reason I have some information to hand which might be useful to someone.
[Note: most of this is now almost 20 years old.]

ancient Latin writer. Manuscripts, Latin, Rare Books,
Lost Works, and other things about one of the funniest

the Latin-to-English gap.

TIPS ON HOUSEHOLD THINGS
Like most things on the 'net, these pages are the
product of amateur interest (and so is the 'net, come to think of
it). This means there may be unintentional errors of fact or
interpretation in them. I would welcome constructive comment, and
corrections of matters of fact. Many of these pages are now very old, it
must be said, and I haven't looked at them in years. Others are the
subject of constant update.
