The want of a good Series of Greek and Latin Classics, suited to the Use of Schools, with the English mode of Punctuation, and under English Editorship, has long been felt; and it is a matter of wonder that our Schools should so long have been obliged to depend on Germany for accurate Greek and Latin texts.
To meet this want, the "OXFORD POCKET CLASSICS" were commenced some years back, and each year has added some three or four authors to the collection.
The Series now consists of about Thirty Volumes.
The advantages of this series of Classics are, that they are printed from the best texts extant; and not only this, but each volume has, during its progress through the press, been superintended by some competent member of the University. There have also been supplied, where necessary, SUMMARIES, CHRONOLOGICAL TABLES, BIOGRAPHICAL NOTICES, INDICES, and the like-aids which are often wanting in other editions. Lastly, they are printed in a good plain type, and on a firm, fine paper, capable of receiving writing inks, for notes, and at the same time they are supplied at moderate prices.
It is hoped that the advantages which the OXFORD POCKET CLASSICS" possess over other Series will not fail to increase the circulation which they have already attained in both our public and private Schools, as also in our Universities. PRICES OF THE OXFORD POCKET
