Noted classicist Bernard Knox's copy, with his ownership signature on the front free endpaper. Knox was the first official director of the Center for Hellenic Studies, and is known for his masterful introductions to a number of Robert Fagles's translations. He was awarded the Charles Frankel prize in 1990 and was selected by the NEH to deliver the Jefferson Lecture in 1992, awarded for acheivement in the humanities. Thus a notable copy of an important book.
