The Odyssey of Homer by Easton Press is an English version translated by Alexander Pope. It is finely illustrated with the classic designs of John Flaxman and his illustrations were completed in 1793. Includes a note on the translation and publishers preface. The frontispiece illustration of Homer was specially commissioned.

As with the Iliad, The Odyssey in an epic Greek poem. It follows Odysseus, a Greek hero as he returns home after the Trojan War. He travels home from Troy to Ithaca through Africa where he encounters additional perils. It is still regarded as one of the most significant works and was translated into English in the 16th century.
