Full Description

8vo. xii + 272pp, 53 text ills. Publisher’s cloth, slightly worn and faded, bumped at head and foot of spine and at one outer corner. Presentation inscription from the author

Based on the author’s D.Litt. thesis at London University. It correlates descriptions of houses in ancient Greek literature with the results of Arthur Evans’s excavations at Knossos and other recent archaeological investigations. Curiously uncommon in the book trade today.
