'This New Edition is framed with a view of still satisfying the demand for the book as a traveller's handbook, somewhat less didactic than the official guide-books, somewhat also, I hope, more picturesque. For that purpose I have added a new chapter on mediaeval Greece, as well as many paragraphs with new information, especially the ride over Mount Erymanthus, pp.343, sqq. I have corrected many statements which are now antiquated by recent discoveries, and I have obliterated the traces of controversy borne by the Second Edition. For the criticisms on the book are dead, while the book survives. To me it is very pleasant that many visitors to Greece have found it an agreeable companion.' (J.P. MAHAFFY in the Preface, p.XIV).
