Format: Paperback
The translations of these plays are good and easy to read, as are the commentaries.

But the fact that they can't even spell Euripides correctly on the spine of the book (a noticable part of the book!) is, for me, ridiculous (this is the only volume to do so - they have spelt it Eurpides).

I mean come on, it's the spine of the book!
