Excerpt from The Isles and Shrines of Greece

The isles and shrines of Greece! Not all the shrines, nor all the isles, but many of them, and these the most beautiful and the most famous.

This book is a partial expression of gratitude for rich opportunities enjoyed in Greece, where few persons, I fancy, have had a more varied experience. The great difficulty has been to compress within the limits of one volume the mass of material at my command. No place is described that I have not seen, though I saw many places which there is no room to describe. Nearly all of the illustrations are reproductions from photographs from my own camera.

In fulfilling a desire to enter Greece by the portals of the Odyssey and to leave it through the Trojan gates of the Iliad, my trip included the Ionian Islands, the Peloponnesus, Phocis, Thessaly, Attica, the Ægean Islands and Troy.
