Originally published in 1914, Edmonds' book is a succinct introduction to the history, art, literature and geography of ancient Greece from the prehistoric Aegean civilizations to the sack of Corinth by the Romans in 146 BC. Edmonds includes questions at the end of each chapter to stimulate discussion, and the text is augmented by fourteen maps, thirty-seven photographs and five illustrations. This book is still useful as a general introduction to ancient Greece, and will be of additional value to those with an interest in the history of Classical education in England.
