“Mr. Sidgwick has put on the title. pages of these modest little volumes the words “Rugby Edition.' but we shall be much mistaken if they do not find a far wider circulation. The prefaces or introductions which Mr. Sidgwick has prefixed to his 'Scenes' tell the youthful student all that he need kaow about the play that he is taking in hand, and the parts chosen are those which give the general scope and drift of the action of the play." School Board Chronicle.
“Each play is printed separately, on good paper, and in a neat and handy form. The difficult passages are explained by the notes appended, which are of a particularly useful and intelligible kind. In all respects this edition presents a very pleasing contrast to the German editions hitherto in general use, with their Latin ex. planatory notes-themselves often requiring explanation. A new feature in this edition, which deserves mention, is the insertion in English of the stage directions. By means of them and the argument prefixed, the study of the play is much simplified.”-Scotsman.
" A short preface explains the action of the play in each case, and there are a few notes at the end which will clear up most of the difficulties likely to be met with by the young student.' - Educational Times.
“Just the book to be put into the hands of boys who are reading Greek plays. They are carefully and judiciously edited, and form the most

valuable aid to the study of the ele. ments of Greek that we have seen for many a day. The Grammatical Indices are especially to be commended.” - Atheneum.
“These editions afford exactly the kind of help that school-boys require, and are really excellent class-books. The notes, though very brief, are of much use and always to the point, and the arguments and arrangement of the text are equally good in their way.”-Standard.
"Not professing to give whole dramas, with their customary ad. mixture of iambics, trochaics, and choral odes, as pabulua for learners who can barelydigest the level speeches and dialogues commonly confined to the first-named metre, he has arranged extracted scenes with much tact and skill, and set them before the pupil with all needful information in the shape of notes at the end of the book; besides which he has added a somewhat novel, but highly commendable and valuable feature--namely, appro. priate headings to the commencement of each scene, and appropriate stage directions during its progress."
Saturday Review. “These are attractive little books, novel in design and admirable in execution.
It would hardly be possible to find a better introduction to Aristophanes for a young student than these little books afford,"
