Twenty-four pages of colour illustrations complement de Sélincourt's eye for both the serious and playful aspects of ancient life, juxtaposing sublime statues and vases with ancient depictions of turtles, crocodiles and hockey players. The binding design, portraying a raucous Dionysian parade, encapsulates de Sélincourt's sense that 'men in the passage of centuries, though they have changed their clothes much and often, have but little and seldom changed themselves'. The World of Herodotus book. Bound in cloth, blocked with a design by Neil Gower. Set in Garamond. 448 pages. Frontispiece and 24 pages of colour plates. 9½" x 6¼".
