This is an excellent study text, with full commentary on historical, stylistic and grammatical matters. For any student, though, it has two serious drawbacks:

(1) The commentary is at the back of the book after the text, when it would be more conveniently placed on facing pages (i.e. like the Bristol Classical Press edition of Ovid's Amores I which I now have in front of me)

(2) The paperback binding is so stiff that it's actually hard even to hold the book open, let alone lie it down open on your desk so you can write. Surely any such book intended for a student to make a translation from must be able to lie open? I have to resort to weighing it down with other heavier books, which is incredibly inconvenient as I continually also have to flick forwards and backwards from the text to notes and vice versa.

As a result of problem (2) the binding has torn and several pages have now come unstuck and fallen out. Very poor for a reference book -- and a expensive one as well.
