Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE------------------IN SEARCH OF THE TROJAN WAR by Michael Wood. In this liberally illustrated volume written to accompany a PBS series, BBC producer and series narrator Wood, author of In Search of the Dark Ages, etc., explores the origins of Homer's epics and efforts of archeologists to document the historic truth of the Bronze Age Trojan War as celebrated in the Iliad. Oral tradition and accounts by poets, he notes, have yet to be disproved by archeology. He cites the fascination which the Trojan story has exercised throughout history and on travelers of all periods, Byron among them. Despite archeologist Heinrich Schliemann's exaggerations, the author credits him with the development of modern archeology into a science. Schliemann's finds and those of other archeologists of Mycenaean, Minoan and Hittite civilizations are discussed in some detail. Troy, Wood speculates, may have been one of many cities sacked by the Greeks for economic reasons, and Helen one of the many women captured. PLUS---there are L-O-A-D-S of photos and illustrations---many in full-color---on almost every page! This is the OVERSIZED (it barely fit in my scanner!) hardcover stated Facts on File First Edition from 1985. Other than a name stamp on the inside cover and flyleaf, both the dj and the book are in excellent condition. There are no rips, tears, markings, etc. and the pages and binding are tight (see photo). **Note: All books listed as FIRST EDITIONS are stated by the publisher in words or number lines--or--only stated editions that include only the publisher and publication date.
