Order Nr. 57751

Printed in an edition limited to 140 copies each of what is considered the scarest publication(s) from The Allen Press. Designed, hand-printed and bound by Lewis & Dorothy Allen. This is a complete Greek tragic trilogy in which Aeschylus won his thirteenth first prize at the annual Dramatic Contest at Athens, 458 B.C. It is considered on of the supreme productions in all literature, with this being the only deluxe edition in English, and produced entirely by hand. The typography for both volumes is similar, and black-brown ink is used for the text, with flame color ink for display lines. It is illustrated with 23 carat gold illuminations. The first volume is titled Volume One, Drama One: Agamemnon and the second volume is titled Volume Two: Choephoroi, The Libation Bearers and Eumenides, The Furies.
