EDITED AND ANNOTATED FOR THE USE OF CANDIDATES BY THE Rev. E. T. STEVENS, M.A., and the Rev. DAVID MORRIS, B.A.

This series is intended to meet the requirements of elementary and second grade schools, and of youthful students of our English literature in general, Each work selected is one of classical and standard merit, and is prefaced with a short but comprehensive sketch of the writer, including an account of the style and design of his work. Allusions are carefully explained, and all grammatical difficulties are removed in the notes.'

STANDARD. So many sets of English classics pass through our hands that their identity is occasionally lost. This is a new series, and one to which we can give a cordial welcome, both for its selection of subjects and for the style in which it is produced. Each volume contains a short account of the Author whose poem follows, and of the poem itself. Unlike other annotated editions for schools, the notes are in this placed beneath the text, and not relegated to the end. This plan adds to the usefulness of each volume as a school text-book. The notes gical and grammatical explanations are of sufficient worth to deserve permanent record. A good example of this may be found in Gray's Elegy (14), on the expression, Many a.” The same expression occurs in the L'Allegro, and the same note is repeated. This is treatment which a really good poem will bear, and which is of the greatest service to the student of English; and the less opportunity he has of a classical train. ing the more he needs that which this affords him.' NONCONFORMIST.

* Tiny books got up with great taste. The works of standard poets having come to be considered a necessary part of the education of certain pupils, these books have been prepared for their use. Each book contains one poem, prefaced by a sketch of the Author's life, and at the foot of each page copious notes and grammatical hints are given. The books are well printed and capitally edited." LITERARY WORLD.

An excellent series of choice compo. sitions, selected from standard English authors, for the use of pupils of the second grade and elementary schools: Each poem is prefaced with a brief sketch of the Author's life, and a short criticism on the poem, accompanied by numerous explanatory and critical foot. notes. With the aid of these annota. tions, written as they are in simple language, there is no reason why these great poems should not be read with intelligence and appreciation.' LANCET.

Each poem is published separately, with a short sketch of the Author's life, and accompanied with copious notes on the meaning and derivation of words, and such other subjects as are necessary to comprehension of the texu without reference to dictionaries, or other sources of information, on the part of the student. Not only will these little books give material aid to the understanding of our best poets, but they offer a better insight into the refinements of our language than can be had from ordinary means. The little books are very nicely got up,

and offered to the public at the lowest possible price.' QUEEN.
