Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in every way... I haven't read the book - maybe one day - as I bought books from this series purely for their beauty. And they didn't disappoint. A must for any collector.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A helluva book! When I first read "The Odyssey" in an airport lobby in '73, I was taken aback by the utter brilliance of the piece.
