The book : Attractive and Scarce Victorian book - in the 1870 Spectator, it is stated : "The Boys of Axleford. is a set of bright, lively, and humorous sketches of boy life, published originally, if we remember, in Good Words for the Young, and coming therefore well recommended. The writer knows something of boys, and feels sure that the public would not stand absolute photographs of them ; but Mr. Camden's boys are nevertheless real, with such idealizing as is necessary skilfully managed.
