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

32 editions published between 1912 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 492 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 Dörpfeld 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
Iliad by Homer( Book )

47 editions published between 1886 and 1971 in 3 languages and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is a new Loeb Classical Library edition of Homer's stirring heroic account of the Trojan war and its passions. The eloquent and dramatic epic poem captures the terrible anger of Achilles, "the best of the Achaeans," over a grave insult to his personal honor and relates its tragic result: a chain of consequences that prove devastating for the Greek forces besieging Troy, for noble Trojans, and for Achilles himself. The poet gives us compelling characterizations of his protagonists as well as a remarkable study of the heroic code in antiquity. The works attributed to Homer include the two oldest and greatest European epic poems, the Odyssey and the Iliad. These have been published in the Loeb Classical Library for three quarters of a century, the Greek text facing a faithful and literate prose translation by A.T. Murray. William F. Wyatt now brings the Loeb's Iliad up to date, with a rendering that retains Murray's admirable style but is written for today's readers
Schliemann's discoveries of the ancient world by Karl Schuchardt( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 426 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)
