Publisher's glossy wraps. Nine complete stories are included here as well as fragments of ten others, encompassing the full range of classical themes: romance, mythology, travel, adventure, historical fiction and comic parody. Prose fiction, although not always associated with classical antiquity, did in fact flourish in the early Roman Empire, not only in realistic Latin novels but also and indeed principally in the Greek ideal romance of love and adventure to which they are related. Popular in the Renaissance, these stories have been less familiar in later centuries. Translations of the Greek stories were not readily available in English before B.P. Reardon’s excellent volume. . This is an unmarked copy, corners lightly bumped, else fine. NEAR FINE.. Trade PB. 8vo 8" - 9" tall. viii, 827 pp
