57 Newly Open Access Ebooks from The American School of Classical Studies at Athens

Many volumes within the Corinth ("Red Book"), Athenian Agora ("Blue Book"), and Hesperia Supplement series are out of print, and there are no plans to reprint the volumes at least for the next few years. In 2014, the Publications Committee of the ASCSA's Managing Committee voted unanimously to allow PDFs of these out-of-print volumes to be posted to the ASCSA's website as Open Access. You may freely read, download, and share these files under the BY-NC-ND Creative Commons license (non-commercial use; you must cite the ASCSA as the source; you may not make derivatives). The scans were created by JSTOR, and through the ASCSA's Content Sharing Agreement with JSTOR, we can make these PDFs available to individuals at no charge.

To read a PDF on your screen, click on its title once. To download, either right-click (Windows) or control-click (Mac) and choose the "Save Link As . . . " option from the menu that appears. Most Internet browsers will open a PDF file directly. You can open and read PDF files on your computer using free software such as Adobe Reader.

NB: Some of these files are quite large, so please be patient when either opening them directly online, or when downloading them. Filesizes have been included for each Ebook in parentheses following the title.
