Troy; a study in Homeric geography by Walter Leaf( Book )

30 editions published between 1912 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walter Leaf (1852-1927), banker, classicist and alpinist, held various positions as chairman of the Westminster Bank, founder of the London Chamber of Commerce and president of the Hellenic Society, reflecting his wide-ranging professional and scholarly interests. Leaf was educated at Harrow School and Trinity College, Cambridge, of which he became a fellow in 1875. As a scholar, Leaf was concerned with uncovering the physical reality of the classical world, and in this 1912 work he 'aims at testing the tradition of the Trojan War by comparing the text of Homer with the natural conditions described, or more often implicitly assumed, in the Iliad'. This book draws on the archaeological work of Schliemann and D©œrpfeld at Troy, but also on Leaf's own expert knowledge of the Iliad (of which his two-volume edition is also reissued in this series), thereby providing a thorough exploration of the historical geography of the Troad
Schliemann's discoveries of the ancient world by Karl Schuchardt( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, which was written under Schliemann's supervision and was published shortly after his death, the dazzling accumulation of Schliemann's many findings has been systemized by Dr. Schuchhardt. He also updates them, as Schliemann uncovered so much and was a tireless worker that he sometimes did not know precisely what he had found. After a short description of Schliemann's life, Dr. Schuchhardt gives detailed accounts of Schliemann's discoveries at Troy, Tiryns, and Mycenae. The great treasures found at Troy and Mycenae are thoroughly described, as well as Schliemann's experimental method of unearthing them. All of these findings are illustrated by hundreds of illustrations, diagrams and maps. -- Book jacket (inside flap)

Each line imparts the qualities of this spiritual teacher: an audacious love that empowers lives, profound knowledge, wild generosity, and a sweet, playful genius unparalleled in world literature.--From publisher description
