If I could only have one book on a desert island, I’d have a hard time choosing between Stanley Lombardo’s translation of the Iliad and my leather-bound Iliad & Odyssey, translated by Samuel Butler.
If I could take a second book, I’d probably want a heavily annotated and cross-referenced edition of the King James, but I haven’t found such a thing in print. Does anyone have anything to recommend? It’s hard to imagine how people studied the Bible before there were so many great online tools. I really like this cross-referenced Bible: NewKreation.com/bible/.
If I could take three books, I’d take the scholar’s edition of Human Action. (You might think Rothbard, but Mises is the source.) Of course, I’ve only read the first half of it; maybe it gets awful in the second half. I hope I don’t get shipwrecked before I finish the book and can know for sure.
