From May 13 to 22, 2018, over thirty participants, including twenty-four members of the Grolier Club, embarked on a bibliophilic tour of Greece. Historical context is provided in an introduction to the book in Greek and the book in Greece, and the travelers' experiences are recounted in essays on the group's trips to such landmarks as Delphi, Meteora, and Chora, and to bookish destinations, including the New Acropolis Museum, the Gennadius Library, the National Historical Museum, the Benaki Museum, the Efstathios Finopoulos Collection, the Old National Library, and the National Archaeological Museum. The personality of the trip is captured by the illustrations, a detailed itinerary, and a list of the participants.

Dedicated to Millard M. Riggs, Jr., in memory of his friendship during his long tenure as a Grolier Club member, this volume celebrates another voyage in the long history of the Grolier Club's bookish adventures in Europe.

Designed by Jerry Kelly, and set in his Quarto and Lowe types.
