From the renowned collection of Panos Gratsos. 'It is a spectacular book and was a roaring success... No one could overlook or ignore this book and as much as the discovery of Troy, this book was responsible in my opinion for Schliemann's immediate and lasting international fame' (Runnels).

After Schliemann's spectacular discoveries at Troy in 1873 and the ensuing court case brought against him by Turkey, he was prevented from excavating in Troy for several years. In 1876 he turned his attention to Mycenae and carried out excavations on the site from August to November with the resulting discovery of 'Agamemnon's Treasure'.

First edition; 8vo, lxviii, 384 pp., 549 illustrations showing more than 700 objects, 21 plates, 4 coloured plates, 8 plans, contemporary tree calf gilt by Worsfold, green morocco labels, joints lightly rubbed, a very good copy.

Runnels 1878a; Blackmer 1498.

Provenance: Panos Gratsos (with his Skinos book label).
