Nice Firm Clean copy ! Unmarked. Rebound by Harcourt Bindery in the 20th century by collector. Dark green pebblely cloth with gold lettering on spine. 803 pages. Final edition, 15th American Edition, greatly enlarged in the Historical department. Revised and Corrected, and divided into three parts: Geography, History, Mythology. The best-known work of John Lemprière, an English classical scholar. Edited by various later scholars, the dictionary long remained a readable if not absolutely trustworthy reference book in mythology and classical history. The dictionary has been a handbook for teachers, journalists, dramatists and poets for almost 200 years and John Keats is said to have known the book almost by heart. Many ships of the Royal Navy were named from Greek and Roman mythology during the Napoleonic Wars. Lord Sandwich, the First Lord of the Admiralty, had a copy of this book on his desk and simply plucked a name from within. For example, HMS Bellerophon, HMS Charon, HMS Orion, HMS Leander, HMS Minotaur, HMS Pegasus, HMS Phaeton, HMS Theseus, HMS Venus.
