Drisler was co-editor of the influential Anthon text editions, and was also a co-editor of the seventh revised edition of the Liddell-Scott Greek Lexicon, and general editor of the Harper classical series]. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings.
