Lock, Walter. Prefatory Note by the General Editor. The Book of the Prophet Isaiah with Introduction and Notes. London: Methuen & Co., 1911. includes:

The series will be less elementary than the Cambridge Bible for Schools, less critical than the International Critical Commentary, less didactic than the Expositor’s Bible; and it is hoped that it may be of use both to theological students and to the clergy, as well as to the growing number of educated laymen and laywomen who wish to read the Bible intelligently and reverently.

But I don't find the name of the commentary series? Anyone know?

Googling that paragraph shows up in a number of books on Google books from a series titled Westminster Commentaries Series.

Thanks - I should have thought of that way of finding it.

From what I can see, Logos generally includes the series name in the metadata even when they've only published one volume, so I put this on the Metadata correction proposals page. 

Anyone who recognizes any other Logos volumes in that list?

I think they're nearly all available as part of the Classic Commentaries collections. Certainly I found Rackham on Acts, Goudge on 1 Corinthians, Driver on Genesis, Knowling on James, Redpath on Ezekiel and McNeile on Exodus (none of them had series data). I didn't find Gibson on Job, though.

Thanks, Mark. I edited the Wiki entry.

Seems to be a couple of books from a second commentary series by the same publisher, for which the preface by the General Editor states:

This series of Expositions is intended to be of service to the general reader in the practical and devotional study of Holy Scripture. The Editors of the several Books, while taking into account the latest results of critical research, will make it their main endeavour to exhibit and emphasise the permanent truths and principles underlying the Sacred Text, and to indicate the bearing of these truths and principles on the spiritual, the moral, and the social life of the present day.

Each Book is prefaced by a full and clear Introductory Section, setting forth what is known, or may be reasonably conjectured, respecting the date and occasion of the composition of the Book, and any other particulars that may help to elucidate its meaning as a whole. The Exposition proper is divided into short paragraphs, which are grouped together in larger sections corresponding as far as possible with the divisions of the Church Lectionary, and a Table is given shewing the days on which the different sections are appointed to be read at Morning and Evening Prayer. The translation of the Authorised Version is printed in full, such corrections as are deemed necessary to bring out the sense being placed in footnotes.

Titles seem to include: (anyone know of others?)

The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Galatians: A.W. Robinson
The General Epistle of St. James: H. W. Fulford

Anyone have ideas as to what this second series was called?
(this information may have been on part of the book not included in the Logos editions)
