Fundacion Pastor, Madrid, 1958. 90p. Sewn. Unopened. Series: Cuadernos de la 'Fundacion Pastor', 1. (Rare). 'Galiano describes his work as 'the first chapter of a series entitles 'The Discovery of Love in Greece'. (...) On p.17 the right question is asked: what exactly was it which attracted women from overseas to Sappho's society, and what exactly did they do there? (...) For some reason (...) Lesbian society at this time was specially fertile ground for the growth of associations of young women: and the magnet which attracted them was, in a word, Love; in Mytilene they found strange freedom to indulge their emotions, and to express those emotions in song. (...) Galiano recognizes with most delicate and just appreciation the strength and quality of the love which united them: we should expect, and shall certainly find, that it was by no means wholly spiritual (...). This book (which is much longer and solider than the mere number of pages would suggest) is an important contribution to its theme, the nature of love in Sappho; well informed, thoughtful, and constructive. It will retain its value for a long time, and future editors of Sappho and writers about her will do well to read and re-read it with close attention.' (D.L. PAGE in The Classical Review (New Series), 1959, pp.238-39). From the library of the late Prof. W. Geoffrey Arnott.
