1 Bikelas, D[emetrious] Loukis Laras : Reminiscences of a Chiote Merchant During the War For Independence
London Macmillan 1881 First Edition Hardcover Good 
"Loukis Laras" is a landmark of Greek literature marking the shift from from romanticism to realism. "In this borderland (between romanticism and realism) we find "Loukis Laras" . . . (and) it is the unromatic, realistic setting that is most interesting in this book; moreover the characters, the style, and the language, a moderate katharevousa without the mannerism of Rangavis or Pavlos Kalligas, are consistent with the unromantic approach." (Politis) A good copy bound in black cloth with gilt spine lettering, deckle edges. Three addresses of previous owner on front endpaper. The binding is sound, the cloth is worn, especially at the corners, where the cloth has worn through, and a couple of spots along the front joint where there are two small tears. The top of the spine also has two small tears at the joints. Phillippides A7.1795. 34873
