The Saturday Review says : — " Mr. Ainger is a connoisseur in Lamb,
and, what is better for his purpose, in the literature that nourished
aud stimulated Lamb. He has, moreover, the indispensable editorial
qualities of tact, patience, insight, and moderation."

The Academy says: — "We may go on to say that our professed
student of literature will never want a more satisfactory edition of
Lamb than that which Mr. Ainger has put before us."
