Upper corners bumped. Minor shelfwear to DJ now protected in mylar. ; With technical assistance from William A. Johnson ; 341 pages; A unique bibliography of literary works that survive from Greek antiquity, this Canon is a register of all the information stored in the Thesaurus Linguae Graecae, a vast computerized database of Greek literature whose coverage is now being extended to the end of the Byzantine empire (c. 1453). The book encompasses nearly 3,200 authors, representing over 8,000 individual works and some 64,000,000 words of Greek text. It includes invaluable information on each writer's dates and geographical origins, their works, the genre to which each work belongs, the form in which each work survives, and the number of words each contains. Of particular usefulness is information on the standard or best textual edition of each work, as recommended by a special committee of the American Philological Association.
