DJ blurb on Herodotus's Persian Wars:
It is a source of great pride to the editors of the Modern Library whenever a book universally recognized as a classic is added to the series. Such a volume, hailed for almost twenty-five centuries as a "universal history" by "the most Homeric of historians," is Herodotus' account of the struggle between Greece and Persia. Offered complete and unabridged in over 700 pages in the famous George Rawlinson translation, the work of the "Father of History" is available for the first time at a price within the means of every reader. Francis R. B. Godolphin, Dean of the College, Princeton University, provides an illuminating introduction.
