MODERN SCHOOL CLASSICS (MACMILLAN & CO. / ST MARTIN'S PRESS)

Series Note: This series of small hardback secondary school textbooks for Latin and Greek students offered selections of intermediate level passages written by the great authors of the Classical world. Each volume included the text in Latin or Greek and (in English) an introduction, notes and vocabulary (most often by a British scholar).

The aim of the series was to
present classical texts in their original languages accompanied with appropriate notes and vocabulary to assist students in translating the texts and understanding their historical and literary background.

Each volume also featured some black and white photograph (plates) and drawing and in some cases with a frontispiece and maps.

In the 1950s the volumes were bound with red cloth with black text on the front panel and on the spine. For an example, see the image of The Roman Army above.

In the 1960s the volumes were bound with terracotta or olive cloth with pictorial covers (a black and white roundel on the front panel) and black and white text on the front panel and on the spine. For an example, see the image of Four Greek Authors below.

Each volume contained between 110 and 245 pages. The volume size was 12mo. (approx. 7 x 5 inches).
