A. C. McClurg, Chicago, 1912.  Antiquarian hard cover, 154 pages.  Very good; green cloth with cream lettering on front and spine, spine lettering rubbed and faded, gilt design on front.  Corners bumped with a bit of wear; spine ends worn with tiny tears and losses to cloth.  Binding sound.  Prior owner’s name and address on FEP; remainder of interior clean and unmarked; black & white frontis plate depicting the death of Hector plus two other plates.  Translated and abridged from the German of Carl Friedrich Becker.  ‘He gives the reader a graphic picture of the stirring events in the ten years’ siege maintained by the Greeks, under the leadership of Agamemnon, king of Mycenae, in their finally successful effort to redress the injury done to Menelaus, king of Sparta, whose wife, Helen, was carried off by Paris.  The striking points in this thrilling narrative are the quarrel between Agamemnon and Achilles; the exploits of Hector, noblest character of them all; the human impersonations of the gods, who take part in the strife – some on one side, some on the other; the death of Patroclus; the final reconciliation of Achilles and Agamemnon and the former’s tremendous exploits; the death of Hector, and the touching interview with the aged Priam, who seeks to recover his body.’ (from Preface)
