Description

Fine Binding, Prize Binding, Scarce

Gilbert Murray (1866-1957) was a British leading scholar of classics, in particular of Ancient Greece, as well as being an important humanist, serving as President of the Ethical Union. He translated a plethora of Greek literature, including many Athenian dramas and tragedies. This volume lays out the history and setting for Greek epics, exploring all manner of Homeric themes and context.

This is a school binding, with the gilt emblem of St Paul's School, London, stamped on the front cover, and an empty prize bookplate to the front pastedown.

In a marvellous full leather binding with a gilt spine, edges and borders.

Condition
