adj., adv. a superl. of late with later as compar.
You use latest or last to talk about one of a series of events which is continuing to happen, or one of a series of things which someone is continuing to have or produce.
If one of a series of events is happening now or has just happened, you refer to it as the latest one.
If someone keeps having or producing a series of things, you refer to the one they have now or the one they have produced most recently as their latest one.
You can talk about more than one thing in this way by putting last in front of a number. For example, you can talk about 'his last three books'.
