The Private Life of Helen of Troy (Albatross Modern Continental Library) (image)

The Private Life of Helen of Troy by John Erskine
Hamburg, The Albatross Verlag, 1933
(Albatross Modern Continental Library, 80)

Series Note:
"The 'Tauchnitz Editions,' [sic] which were unique in bringing English texts to German readers after 1841, could boast of an outstanding literary fare at a very low price. During the second and third decade of the twentieth century, they did not keep pace with progress made in typography and had little to recommend in this respect. Their appearance was dull... Aware of these limitations, the Albatross Modern Continental Library was organized in Hamburg in 1932 as a competitor in this field. (...)

Albatross followed the same basic pattern as 'Tauchnitz Editions,' but stressed contemporary writing and created a more attractive format for its series, which eventually included about four hundred titles."
