'This book is a companion volume designed to illustrate the author's Greek Papyri. (...) The volume contains an introduction and seventy-three illustrations chosen as a representative selection of Greek literary texts. Each plate is described and there is a partial transcription. (...) The introduction deals with all the main features of book production in antiquity (...). There is a careful analysis of the distinction between book and cursive hands. (...) Altogether a useful book; students and scholars now have an album which shows conveniently what ancient books looked like and adds a sound commentary.' (N.G.
