1 Fox, Robin Lane Travelling Heroes Greeks and Their Myths in the Epic Age of Homer
UK Penguin 2009 Papeback Very Good None Issued 19.5cm 
504 densely packed pp plus index, remainder mark at bottom. This remarkable and original book proposes a new way of thinking about the Greeks and their myths in the age of the great Homeric hymns. It combines a lifetime's familiarity with Greek literature and history with the latest archeological discoveries and the author's own journeys to the main sites in the story to describe how particular Greeks of the eighth century BC travelled east and west around the Mediterranean, and how their extraordinary journeys shaped their ideas of their gods and heroes. It gathers together stories and echoes from many different ancient cultures, not just the Greek - Assyria, Egypt, the Phoenician traders - and ranges from Mesopotamia to the Rio Tinto at Huelva in modern Portugal. Book in great order.

4 Hill, Sir George A History of Cyprus Volume 1
London Cambridge University Press 1949 Reprint Hard Cover Very Good Good 23.5cm 
Previous owner's gift inscription 1st page. dj clipped & darkened on spine, upper corners bumped. 352pp, endpaper maps & numerous bw photos. Sir George Francis Hill (1867-1948), was perhaps best known as a numismatist, although his scholarly interests and accomplishments included a range of time periods and subjects. A classicist by training, Hill built his career at the British Museum's department of coins and medals. In his forty-three years there he produced volumes on coins of antiquity; Greek history and art; coins, heraldry, and iconography of medieval and Renaissance Italy; and treasure troves. In 1931 Hill became the Museum's director and principal librarian, the first archaeologist to hold this post. His four-volume History of Cyprus (1940-52) ranged from Cyprus's earliest years to the twentieth century, and became the standard text on the subject. It is a valuable resource for scholars of the country, of antiquity and of the Mediterranean world.
