Here's what I have got: Beeson's "A Primer of Medieval Latin"; Scott, Foresman, 1925 Grandgent's "An Intro. to VL"; Hafner (reprint), 1962 Muller's "A Chrestomathy of VL"; D. C. Heath, 1932 Souter's "Glossary of Later Latin"; Oxford, 1949, 1996 Beeson and Muller are mostly full of texts (very little grammar, though Muller has more). Grandgent is what you'll want to look at for grammar (esp. phonology). Souter is Lat to Eng only. Padraic.
