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.
