Nauplion

By Gregory,Timothy E

Athens: Lycabettus Press, 1980. (New - will be sent to you direct from the publisher in Greece) Nauplion had a long and fascinating history long before the first head of the independent modern Greek state, Ioannis Kapodistrias, was assassinated here in 1831 and the young Bavarian prince Otho, appointed King of Greece, arrived in 1833. Finds dating to the Mycenaean period have been excavated near the city and during the classical period Nauplion served as a port for the more powerful city state of Argos. Macedonian, Roman, and then Byzantine rule were followed by the Crusaders, then the Venetians and Ottomans. The city is sprinkled with buildings, churches, statues, and fountains from these periods and the two large fortresses of Akronauplia and Palamidi testify to the city's strategic importance. All this is carefully described by Timothy Gregory's 81 page guide, Nauplion, with plans and black and white photographs, paperback.. Soft Cover. New Book from Greece.

Mani : Travels in the Southern Peloponnese

By Fermor, Patrick Leigh

London: Penguin, 1984. Lyrical account of a remote and fascinating area in southern Greece. This is Patrick Leigh Fermor's spellbinding part-travelogue, part inspired evocation of a part of Greece's past. Joining him in the Mani, one of Europe's wildest and most isolated regions, cut off from the rest of Greece by the towering Taygettus mountain range and hemmed in by the Aegean and Ionian seas, we discover a rocky central prong of the Peleponnese at the southernmost point in Europe. Bad communications only heightening the remoteness, this Greece - south of ancient Sparta - is one that maintains perhaps a stronger relationship with the ancient past than with the present. Myth becomes history, and vice versa. Leigh Fermor's hallmark descriptive writing and capture of unexpected detail have made this book classic. 320p. Illus.map.index. Remainder mark . Reprint. Soft Cover. Very Good.
