[San Francisco]: [Grabhorn Press], [1943]. Limited Edition. No binding. One of 500 copies, unnumbered. Very good +. Item #17080411

The great tragedian of Athens, Euripides (ca. 480-406), wrote "The Bacchae", from which this excerpt is taken, towards the end of his life, and it premiered posthumously at the Theatre of Dionysus in Athens (n. b., info from Wik).

This excerpt is translated by Gilbert Murray (1866-1957), a classical scholar who, in addition to the studies of history and language, was involved in a myriad of spheres such as politics and literature. This broadside is seemingly scarce in the market, as there are no other copies online as of this writing.

___DESCRIPTION: Broadside, with text in black, one initial capital letter in blue, tailpiece in black, all edges uncut; 17.5" by 11.25", one of 500 copies, unnumbered.

___CONDITION: Better than very good, clean overall with a few spots of soiling to the margins and verso, and shallow creases to the top edge and corners.

___CITATION: Grabhorn Press Bibliography p. 102, erroneously titled "What Else is Freedom. . ."

___POSTAGE:  International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please inquire for details.
