TRENDALL, A.D., and T.B.L. WEBSTER,
Illustrations of Greek Drama.
Phaidon, London, 1971. 1st ed. X,159p. Richly ills.(B&W photographs). Cloth. Spine gilt titled. Upper edge front cover slightly bumped. Library stickers on free endpaper. 'Students of Greek drama should find this book very useful. It presents a selection of photographs with commentaries of 187 representations of dramatic scenes and subjects. A short introduction discusses 'Theatre Art and its Patrons', 'Theatre, Scenery and Costumes', and 'South-Italian Vases and the Stage'. (...) It is a great merit of this book that almost all of the representations that are discussed are also illustrated and described, so that the critical reader is able to judge continuously for himself.' (R.M. COOK in The Classical Review (New Series), 1974, pp.107-08). From the library of Prof. Carl Deroux.
