Description

From the 1979 portfolio of eighteen prints by the Fort Mason Printmakers, "The Herodotus Portfolio," compiled by artist Eleanor Rappe. Each print is a different artist's interpretation of a portion of the Histories of Herodotus. Considered the earliest record of Western history, the Histories spans the major political, cultural, geological, and religious happenings of Western Asia, Northern Africa, and Greece up to the 5th century BC as written by the ancient Greek historian Herodotus.
