Author: EDWARDS, RUTH B.
Title: Kadmos The Phoenician. A Study in Greek Legends and the Mycenaean Age.
Description: Amsterdam: Adolf M.Hakkert, 1979. 9025607969. 1st edition. "What relationship, if any, do the stories preserved in ancient Greek legendary traditions have to real events and circumstances of the periods and places to which they ostensibly refer?..The present book set out to study the development and interpretation of a substantial group of Greek legends associated with one well-known figure, who was said to have originated in the East. It is intended that it should be of interest to oriental specialists as well as to classicists, prehistorians and students of mythology." Based on the author's Ph.D thesis (Greek Legends and the Mycenaean Age, 1968). Pp.xiv/265, 3 maps, signed by the author "With many thanks for your help, & every good wish. Ruth" to half-title page, very clean throughout. Paperback, fading to spine and spine edges. Scarce. VG.
