A History of Greece to the Death of Alexander the Great.
By J. B. Bury, D. Litt., LL. D., F. B. A.
Regis Professor of Modern History and Fellow of King's College Cambridge.
With maps and plans.
Macmillan and Co., limited, London
Second edition
Blue cloth boards with gilt detail to spine.
For anyone interested in Greek history or archeological research, this is a fine book.
There are plentiful illustrations and maps and plans and the text is detailed and insightful, with a brief summary in the margins of what each paragraph deals with. For example flicking through the pages one can find a section referring to the Battle of Salamis with marginal summary of the Delphi legend. As a reference book, this is brilliant.
Most of the maps are in colour.
John Bagnell Bury was an Irish historian and classicist who lived from 1861 to 1927. He was the son of an Anglican rector. Educated at home by his parents, Bury attended Trinity to study classics and was later Professor of Modern History at Trinity College Dublin. In 1902 he became Regius Professor of Modern History at Cambridge University.
Wonderful book.
