Die Neue Overbeck

Since it was first published in Leipzig in 1868, Johannes Overbeck’s Ancient Literary Sources for the History of the Visual Arts of the Greeks has been a standard work, not just for all classical disciplines, but also for art history and related studies. This completely revised new edition in five volumes goes far beyond a simple revision and addition of new sources; it also takes into account the results of archaeological research since Overbeck, as well as changes in the knowledge and needs of future users of the handbook.
