Chapel Hill NC / London: University of North Carolina Press, 2003. First Edition. Hardcover. Large quarto. landscape format (approx. 10 1/4 x 16 inches). vii + 263pp. Rust colour papered boards, titling in white on upper cover and spine, "Genealogical tree" design on both covers. An important reference described by the publisher on the rear cover: "This unique work is the first comprehensive genealogical chart of virtually all of the named figures of Greek mythology that can be shown to be related. The product of more than 35 years of research, the book includes a 72-page continuous chart that links 3,673 named figures into a single "genealogical tree" spanning 20 generations and an 80-page index that provides a citation to an authoritative ancient source for each relationship. The genealogy begins with Chaos and—based on works by Hesiod, Homer, Aeschylus, Pindar, Bacchylides, Herodotus, Euripides, Apollodorus, Pausanias, Diodorus Siculus, and scores of other ancient poets, playwrights, and writers—continues down through the Titans, the gods, legendary kings, and such well-known figures of literature as Odysseus, Jason, Antigone, and Helen of Troy, as well as hundreds of obscure figures, including their spouses, paramours, children, and descendants. The chart shows all of the known relationships—parental, marital, and extramarital—of each figure. In addition to furnishing a citation for each relationship, the index provides brief descriptive information and indicates the quadrant and page of the continuous chart where the relationship is depicted. A two-page master chart illustrates the relationships among the principal figures." A very nice copy. Just a hint of shelfwear, light bruising head and tail of spine, otherwise bright and clean pages. Thus a tight, clean and unmarked VG+ copy. NOTE: obviously large and heavy, will require additional shipping to that automatically quoted, the exact amount dependent upon destination. Item #72144
