METHUEN'S CLASSICAL TEXTS (METHUEN & CO.)
General editors of this series: Sir Arthur Wallace Pickard Cambridge and William Stuart Maguinness.
All volumes in this series come with an introduction and notes and most (but not all) contain a vocabulary section.
Books in this series were all originally published by Methuen & Co. Many titles were reprinted, some republished in revised editions, by Methuen. A few volumes were reprinted by other publishers (e.g. Bristol Classical Press; Bradda Press).

This series was originally announced in 1897 (see immediately below) but, according to worldcat.org, volumes do not seem to have been published until c. 1939 and with a different series editor and book editors.
Methuens Classical Texts
E. C. MARCHANT, M.A.
OF TRINITY COLLEGE, OXFORD; FELLOW OF PETERHOUSE, CAMBRIDGE; ST. PAULs SCHOOL, LONDON.
Messrs. Methuen propose to issue a new series of Classical Texts, edited by eminent scholars, for the use of English-speaking students. The books will be well printed and bound, and will be published at a very low price. The first volume of every author will contain a brief Introduction in English, not exceeding eight pages, in which the necessary information about the MSS. will be given, and the salient features of the authors style indicated.
The critical notes, which will be at the foot of the page, will exhibit only the important MS. variants and conjectures of special value. They will contain very little argument; and there will be no explanatory notes. Every volume of the series will contain a short Index Rerum et Nominum.
Special attention will be paid to the typography of the series.

Aeschylus, R. Y. Tyrrell, D.Litt., LL.D.; Regius Professor of Greek in the University of Dublin.
