It is necessary to prescribe the line
But I do not recommend to do so, because the robots will cease to visit these pages... will not be from these pages go to scan products and other links.
You just have to correctly configure the pagination and let the robots walk everywhere.
Sometimes specify the canonical url for all pages on the first
This is 100 times better than the ban in the file robots.txt but Google recommends a canonical address to write correctly on each page of the pagination and add the meta tag rel NEXT and PREV for a bunch of pages with the same subject and to indicate the next and previous page.
In this case I recommend SEO text to remove from all pages except the first (configured programmatically in code). Well, the meta Title eschu add inscription "page 2", "page 3" etc, then all perfect and close is not necessary.
