The version I have was originally published in 1963. This was a revision of Farnells original which goes back to 1891. The Introduction by Cotter is an overview of Herododus' life and replaces the Farnell's preface of the original. It is unclear to me what changes Marie Goff made - probably not many. It is a light adaption of 20 stories from Herodotus. Though Ionic forms are replaced by Attic, the vocabulary is unchanged from Herodotus. It includes fairly extensive notes on points of grammar and idiom and a vocabulary. The cross referencing of the notes was a little counter intuitive for me. However, once I sused them, the notes proved very helpful and as the text is only lightly adapted they would be helpful to someone reading an unadapted text of Herodotus. ( )
