Excerpt from Virgil's Aeneid, Vol. 1: With Introduction, Notes and Vocabulary
IN a school edition of Virgil such as this, little claim can be laid to originality of matter in the notes or introduction. The only justification for adding one more to the long line of editions of... Virgil is the belief that in the arrangement or presentation of matter the needs of a particular class of students can be more fully met than they are by any other edition equally within their reach. Hence, at' every point, in both notes and introduction, the needs and the capacities of those pupils of our High Schools who, having read two or three books of Caesar, are beginning the study of Latin poetry with this portion of Virgil, have been the editor's first consideration and this, not only in the conception of a beginner's difficulties, and in the presentation of explana tory matter, but equally in the omission of much that is commonly found in such editions, but which the editor con siders it impossible or undesirable for these students to assimilate.
