8vo - 22 x 14 cm.; Unpaginated with 78 pages. "Employing a translation system known as 'allusive referential' McCaffery invents a way of avoiding the strictures of classical translation. Developing all the suggestion and connotations of Sappho's words and phrases, new texts are produced which are at the same time vital re-readings of the originals." Six illustrations by Burnett. Minor soiling, former owner's name on verso of front cover.
