I should say from the outset that this review reflects not the content of this volume which is excellent and provides a rounded selection of essays for anyone getting to grips with the Homeric texts. Instead my review reflects the quality of the reproduction from Amazon. I have been in touch with Cambridge University Press and they let me know that certain volumes that are available as print on demand (such as this one) are also licensed to be printed by other organisations such as Amazon.

I have compared this copy with one from the same series printed by Cambridge University Press themselves and have noted the differences to be as follows:
Identifying feature is on the last page where a barcode and "printed by amazon" is printed.
The cover curls easily unless weighted down and is lighter weight.
The plastic coating on the cover is poor quality and shows signs of bubbling in the folds where it meets the spine.
The pages are a brilliant white that is harder to read from.
The ink density of the typeface is lower and therefore harder to read.
The binding is single page which is more likely to fall apart over time.

A useful and interesting collection of essays introducing a number of the many topics still challenging readers of Homer, in whatever language they use. A good buy.
