    In a pioneering monograph begun in pre-war Poland and completed after he escaped to America, Turyn presents a complete list of over 130 Aeschylean manuscripts (only a dozen of which he had not personally examined) and constructs a tentative stemma of their interrelation which remains an important basis for work on the text of Aeschylus' plays. The book also includes a complete edition of the scholia by Demetrius Triclinius on the Eumenides. Facsimile reprint. No jacket.
