This work explores the emergence of modern Greek language, thought, and sensibility reflected in Harvard’s 80,000-item-strong collection of Greek books and manuscripts, ranging from fifteenth-century liturgical manuals to Renaissance translations into modern Greek of Homer and other classical authors to the works and papers of such twentieth-century Greek literary figures as Nikos Kazantzakis, George Seferis, and C. P. Cavafy. With copious illustrations of Greek writing, design, and typography, Evro Layton’s catalogue is a visual and intellectual treat for philhellenes.
