Chicago / London: The University of Chicago Press, 1962. Hardcover. G- (DJ has moderate aging and wear, with a varriety of tears repaired with tape on the verso; it is also corner clipped and has some foxing on the interior; book block has moderate foxing all along block edges; the foxing does at times bleed onto the page edges but does not touch text or illus.; former owner name and year on first page; still a nice source for Baskin's work.). Red cloth, gilt letters on spine, cream illus. laid on front cover, cream & illus. paper dust jacket, 526 pp., BW illus. One of Homer's classics, translated by American classicist and poet Richard Lattimore (1906-1984) and illustrated by American artist Leonard Baskin (1922-2000). On the dust jacket, Baskin is quoted as saying, "Our human frame, our gutted mansion, our enveloping sack of beef and ash is yet a glory. Glorious in defining our universal sodality and glorious in defining our utter uniqueness. The human figure is the image of all men and of one man. It contains all and it can express all." This is not the best copy of this book, but it's still worthwhile for the content and illustrations. (Inventory #: 156397)
