225 Quintus Of Smyrna; Alan James (Trans. & Ed. ) QUINTUS OF SMYRNA: THE TROJAN EPIC Posthomerica
Johns Hopkins University Press 2004 0801879655 / 9780801879654 Hardcover Very Good in Near Fine dust jacket 
Spotting to boards. Light foxing to textblock. Dustjacket is protected in mylar. ; Composed in the third century A. D. , the Trojan Epic is the earliest surviving literary evidence for many of the traditions of the Trojan War passed down from ancient Greece. Also known as the Posthomerica, or "sequel to Homer," the Trojan Epic chronicles the course of the war after the burial of Troy's greatest hero, Hektor. Quintus, believed to have been an educated Greek living in Roman Asia Minor, included some of the war's most legendary events: the death of Achilles, the Trojan Horse, and the destruction of Troy. But because Quintus deliberately imitated Homer's language and style, his work has been dismissed by many scholars as pastiche. A vivid and entertaining story in its own right, the Trojan Epic is also particularly significant for what it reveals about its sources? The much older, now lost Greek epics about the Trojan War known collectively as the Epic Cycle. Written in the Homeric era, these poems recounted events not included in the Iliad or the Odyssey. As Alan James makes clear in this vibrant and faithful new translation, Quintus's work deserves attention for its literary-historical importance and its narrative power. James's line-by-line verse translation in English reveals the original as an exciting and eloquent tale of gods and heroes, bravery and cunning, hubris and brutality. James includes a substantial introduction which places the work in its literary and historical context, a detailed and annotated book-by-book summary of the epic, a commentary dealing mainly with sources, and an explanatory index of proper names. Brilliantly revitalized by James, the Trojan Epic will appeal to a wide range of readers interested in Greek mythology and the legend of Troy. ; Johns Hopkins New Translations From Antiquity; 9.0 X 6.4 X 1.2 inches; 408 pages

227 Ratkowitsch, Christine VON DER MANIPULIERBARKEIT DES MYTHOS Der Paris/Helena-Mythos Bei Ovid (Her. 16/17) Und Baudri Von Bourgueil (Carm. 7/8)
Éditions Latomus 2012 287031275X / 9782870312759 Softcover Fine 
Mythos generell und der Troja-Mythos im besonderen, der sich vor allem um die Gestalten von Paris und Helena rankt, war immer schon offen für unterschiedliche Deutungen, konnte daher auch für die Vermittlung politischer oder ideologischer Botschaften „maniuliert“ werden. In diesem Buch werden zwei unterschiedliche und doch vergleichbarte Beispiele präsentiert: Ovid läßt in Heroides 16 und 17 bzw. Heroides 5 Paris und Helena bzw. Die von Paris verlassene Nymphe Oenone den Mythos von Urteil des Paris und dessen Liebe zu Helena jeweils anders erzählen. Es handelt sich dabei nicht bloß um literarisches Spiel, sondern Ovid reflektiert auf einer Metaebene allgemein über das Problem der Manipulierbarkeit des Mythos, im speziellen des Mythos über Troja und Aeneas durch Vergil, zum Zweck panegyrischer Aussagen. Am Ende des 11. Jh. Dichtet Baudri von Bourgueil ebenfalls ein Versepistelpaar, in dem er zeigt, wie Paris und Helena ihren eigenen Mythos bzw. Dessen allegorische Aussage mißverstehen und derart ins Unglück stürzen. Dasselbe Problem der richtigen, d. H. Nicht manipulierenden Deutung von Mythos (und der Dichtung, die von solchen Mythen handelt) , liegt auch dem poetischen Brief Baudris an die Nonne Constantia und deren vom Dichter fingierten Antwort zugrunde – ein Problem, das Baudri persönlich betraf, da er wegen seiner Dichtungen in ovidischem Stil Kritik ausgesetzt war. ; Collection Latomus Volume 334; 105 pages

228 Reid, Jane Davidson & Chris Rohmann THE OXFORD GUIDE TO CLASSICAL MYTHOLOGY IN THE ARTS, 1300-1990S [2 VOLUME SET] Volume I & Volume II
Oxford University Press 1993 0195049985 / 9780195049985 Hardcover Very Good+ with no dust jacket 
Scholar's name to ffeps (Robert Brown). Else books are fine. ; Daring in concept and astonishing in scope, The Oxford Guide to Classical Mythology in the Arts is a unique reference work: a topically classified chronology of more than 30,000 artworks from circa 1300 to the present day that take as their theme the subjects of Greek and Roman mythology. In more than three hundred major entries, alphabetically arranged by subject, artworks are listed in chronological order, delineating the history of artistic interest in the subject, including painting, sculpture, music, dance, opera, drama, and literature over the last seven centuries. By bringing together information heretofore segregated by discipline, time period, or other constraint, Jane Davidson Reid has created an invaluable tool for the study of the history of the arts in the Western world. Ranging from Achilles to Zeus, entries cover all the important mythic beings of the classical world, from gods, goddesses, and heroes to nymphs, shepherds, and satyrs. A headnote to each entry identifies the subject, briefly describes relevant events and episodes recounted in Greek and Roman myths, and explains thematic cross-currents represented in the list of artworks that follows. A list of classical literary sources follows the headnote. Each listing of an artwork includes the artist's name, the title of the work, and the date of its creation, publication, or first performance, as appropriate. Also noted are the medium or genre of the work, the present location of works in the fine arts, and other pertinent information. Sources of data on each artwork appear in each listing. Enhanced by a comprehensive system of cross-references, a complete list of the sources of data cited in the listings, and an extensive artist index, which will enable readers to locate works by a given artist across numerous entries, this work presents its vast body of data in a way that is easily accessible to specialist and nonspecialist alike. No other work equals its interdisciplinary scope; no other work matches its usefulness to historians of the arts; and no other work possesses its appeal to scholars, students, and general readers interested in classical mythology and its enduring popularity in Western traditions of artistic expression. ; 2 Volume Set COMPLETE; Vol. 2019-01-02; 1344 pages; Overseas shipping may incur extra charges.

231 Riffert, George Raymond GREAT PYRAMID PROOF OF GOD
Anglo-Saxon Federation of America 1939 Second Revised Edition; Seventh Printing Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 
Dustjacket is protected in mylar. DJ is missing a small piece at spine. Bookplates of former owner; According to Riffert, the Great Pyramid was built by the biblical king Enoch, as 'God's Bible in stone'. As such, its measurements and construction are supposed to represent various messages about the nature of god and to prophesy key occurrences in the history of the world. I present a few of the events supposedly foretold (by an arcane and contrived method of taking dates from measurements of the turnings in the internal passageways of the pyramid) : * 4000 BC. The year of man's creation. Any evidence of man before this date must obviously be wrong, as unbiblical. * 2344 BC. The Great Flood. * Saturday October 6, 4 BC. Birth of Christ. * Friday April 7, AD 30. Death of Christ. * AD 1558. Start of the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. * 25 January, 1844. Amongst other items, the passing of the Bank Charter Act. * August 2, 1909. Czar of Russia met King Edward and inspected the Great Fleet at Clowes. * December 2, 1924. 'On this date the new English Parliament met for the first time, after the Labour Party Parliament, which resigned, had been in power only 286 days'. You would be entitled to think it a little odd that good King Enoch went to all that trouble to forecast a relatively minor date in British political history, but in Riffert's loopy worldview this is perfectly natural. For Riffert was one of the British-Israelites, who believed that the British were in fact the ten lost tribes of Israel, and hence God's Chosen People. Contents include: Great Pyramid and Modern Thought; World's Greatest Wonder; God's Bible in Stone; Modern Science of the Great Pyramid; Christ and Salvation of the Great Pyramid; Astronomical Timing of Man's Creation; Great Pyramid Versus Evolution; Great Pyramid and the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel; What the Great Pyramid Proves etc.. ; 233 pages

247 Schibli, Hermann Sadun PHEREKYDES OF SYROS
Oxford Clarendon Press 1990 0198143834 / 9780198143833 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Light pencil to a couple of pages. Very light bumping to bottom corners. Else book is fine. Dustjacket has minor shelfwear and rubbing with some staining to front DJ flap. ; In the sixth century B. C. , Pherekydes of Syros, the reputed teacher of Pythagoras and a contemporary of Thales and Anaximander, wrote a book about the birth of the gods and the origin of the cosmos. Considered one of the first prose works of Greek literature, Pherekydes' book survives only in fragments. Drawing on these fragments, as well as the ancient testimonies, Schibli here reconstructs the theo-cosmological schema of Pherekydes. From the mythopoeic creation account, colorful narratives of a divine marriage and a battle of the gods, and his remarks on the soul, Pherekydes emerges as a figure who moved between myth and philosophy, and as an important witness to early Greek thought in its various manifestations. ; 0.82 x 8.62 x 6.18 Inches; 240 pages
