The Editor has aimed at simplicity in the Notes, avoiding difficult critical questions as being unsuited to the class of pupils for whom the book is intended. In the text he has retained the old style of spelling, in accordance with the practice of the University Examiners, but in the Papers and Notes has used the modern in order to accustom the pupils to the sight of words in both systems. In the Examination Papers attention has been drawn to the various Figures of Speech used by Virgil in the Aeneid, and also to the difficult scanning of a few lines, which questions, however, can be omitted by younger pupils at the discretion of the master. Particular reference has been made to the Geographical, Historical and Mythological allusions in the Aeneid, as it is essential that these should be known in order to gain a clear insight into the poet's descriptions. That these Papers may be practically useful in preparing pupils for the Local and other Examinations, very full questions have been set on the Genders and different cases of the Nouns, &c., and the principal parts of the Verbs. The Editor firmly believes that pupils well drilled in these Papers will be able to gain good places in the Class Lists.
