Abstract:

The first guide to the excavations at Corinth was written by Rhys Carpenter in 1928, being based in part on an account that had been presented by Harold North Fowler in Art and Archaeology for October 1922. A second edition, revised by Professor Carpenter, appeared in 1933. This was revised again by Charles H. Morgan in 1936 and by Oscar Broneer in 1947. A fifth edition, essentially a reprinting of the fourth, was issued in 1951. Although excavations on a large scale have not been conducted during the past three years, knowledge of the site has been increased through the publication of several new studies. The earlier text of the guidebook has therefore been revised and augmented, principally by Robert L. Scranton working at Corinth, and a few illustrations have been added. Much of the greater part of the book, however, is drawn unchanged from the preceding edition. - Preface / John L. Caskey, Director.
