A History of Greece, From the Earliest Period to the Close of the Generation Contemporary with Alexander the Great

by George Grote

This is a multi-volume history of ancient Greece that was published in London by John Murray, in several editions. Many volumes have been digitized by mass digitization projects, but to date we have not yet a complete set of volumes for any given London edition.

The chapter organization appears to have stayed consistent through editions, however. Below, we provide a basic table of contents, and link to the latest fully accessible volumes of the London J. Murray editions available for particular chapter ranges. (Because we are linking to 10-volume and 12-volume sets, there may be some overlap in chapters for some of the links. Content may also be revised somewhat between editions.) There is also now a complete American edition from Project Gutenberg.

This is a "meta-book", which stitches together separate files elsewhere on the Web as they appeared in a previously published book. It is subject to removal if someone produces an integrated edition. If that happens, The Online Books Page will point to the integrated version.
