Large octavo, with many illustrations, maps, plates & plans; a fine copy in polished tree calf gilt, top edges gilt, others rough-trimmed. A splendid copy of the first edition in English (a German edition appeared the year before). This is Schliemann's own account of his crucial excavations at Mycenę in the Peloponnese, which we now know to have been coloured by his preconceptions: he was determined to confirm Homer's epic and prove that the Agamemnon of myth was a real historic figure who ruled Mycenae and led the Greeks during the Trojan War. His discovery of the Lion Gate was a splendid start to his investigation, and soon after he famously telegrammed to the Greek king "The tombs of Agamemnon and his father Atreus were found in Mycenę". The so-called "Mask of Agamemnon", now in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens, was the most famous highlight, and has since been shown to have predated Agamemnon by some four centuries. . Provenance: Panof Grafsos Skinos (bookplate).
