The Wine Dark Sea / Homer's Heroic Epic of the North Atlantic (SIGNED)
Self-published, Chicago, Illinois 1964 - Patent attorney Mertz, who earlier published an account ("Pale Ink") of the voyages of the Chinese to the west coast of the Americas, here offers geographic evidence that the Odyssey described by Homer took Odysseus not just to the Straits of Messina (off Sicily), but as far as Newfoundland's Bay of Fundy. While further evidence of the Chinese voyages of the early 15th Century has been forthcoming, Ms. Mertz's Homerian theory has not been widely embraced. Signed diagonally by the author -- probably in fountain pen -- to the title page. No dust jacket. A trimmed promotional sheet for the book, on heavy gray paper, has been Scotch-taped to the FFE. 180 pp. including notes and bibliography. Reduced from $1,300. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
