Fine. Very Good+ DJ. No Exp Thames & Hudson Ltd 1985 1st Edition Bright glossy jacket with one mended tear shows minimal wear. This volume (with 367 illustrations, 70 in color and 297 photographs, drawings, and maps) is beautiful enough to grace any table. Yet its text is by notable and capable contributors, who offer 13 succinct essays, establishing the creation and survival of an identifiable Hellenism. Subjects embrace the heroic Bronze Age, history from the Persian Wars to the Roman conquest, and developments in art, philosophy and literature; then transformations in Byzantium and among Christians, Moslems, and Slavs; and finally survival from the Ottoman period to modern times. A stunning introduction to the dynamic peristence of the Greek spirit. Robert J. Lenardon, Classics Dept., SUNY at Albany 1985. Large Item.
