This edition of the Andria being intended for the use of Upper Classes in Schools, and Students reading for Matriculation, the explanations of the scenes are given somewhat at length. A readier facility in seizing the constructions of a text is obtained by a preliminary acquaintance with its substance. The translated passages are more numerous than may be considered necessary or advisable; but students of TERENCE will use translations, and more will still be found left to exercise their industry than would perhaps be the case if meagre assistance were afforded to them.

I have derived much advantage from Mr. PARRY's edition in the BIBLIOTHECA CLASSICA ; but I am especially, though indirectly, indebted to Professor Key, whose excellent Grammar will enable those who have studied it attentively to read TERENCE with comparative ease.
