Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1981. XXXVI,51p. Cloth. A few pen annotations on last paste-down endpaper. Small personal library mark and name on free endpaper. This book 'has a great deal to offer (.) to anyone with an interest in the learning or teaching of Greek palaeography. (.) This is a reader, not an introduction to palaeography. B. has decided to use the available space in the most economical way by giving three or four samples of handwriting per page (?). This has several important advantages: related scripts can be grouped together for comparison, a large number of different scribes and types of hand can be represented, and the complexity of the development of Greek scripts can be tellingly brought out. Of course there are corresponding disadvantages: some of the samples of text are very small which make them less suitable for use in a class than the whole-page specimens in readers of conventional design. (?) One of the most impressive features of B.?s book is the wealth of information provided in extremely compressed form in the notes. (?) Throughout one has a strong sense of B.?s scrupulous care, good judgement and scholarly caution. No words are wasted, but there is much to be learned from her modest but authoritative commentary.? (P.E. EASTERLING in The Classical Review (New Series), 1984, p.297-98). From the library of the late Sir Kenneth James Dover. Antiquarian. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 23685

Über diesen Titel


This book traces the development of Greek literary hands, summarizing what can be deduced about the main characteristics of different styles of writing in different periods. The 110 examples are arranged by style of writing so that similar patterns are easily detectable; each page of plates is faced by a page of description and transcription.

Scrinium Classical Antiquity, member of the Dutch Association of Antiquarian Booksellers (NVvA - ILAB), stands for a specialized stock of new, secondhand and antiquarian books about Classical Antiquity. The main theme of our books is Classical Antiquity: texts and commentaries, translations, archeology, philosophy, travel, history, mythology, books for young people, philology, law, reception of classical motives in Middle Ages, Renaissance and our own time and neo-Hellenika (conptemporary Greece), and many more subjects. A more modest quantity of our books concerns countries, civilisations and religious movements on the edges of the classical world: e.g. Egypt, Middle East and Early Christianity. New books are partly in stock, partly to be ordered from publishers. We are connected to a large number of publishers and distributors, established both in the Netherlands and abroad.
