A scarce title that went into just three printings, first done in 1955. It is 1856, and Herman Schultz has won a prize allowing him to study botany in Greece. But at one point he and his female companions go a little too far into the interior, and are captured by bandits. And there lies the story, as Schultz meets The King of the Mountains and stumbles and also bluffs his way into staying alive in a dangerous country, while learning about the unique tribes of mountainous Greece.

Also includes a two-page bonus feature, "The Story of Britain: The Celtic Invasion," illustrated by the great Lou Cameron, plus one page features on the author and on Greek scholar Socrates. The cover artist is unknown.

From Wikipedia: During the 1940s, artist Norman Nodel worked as assistant to George Marcoux, the newspaper cartoonist known for creating Supersnipe, and started doing comic-book art for True Comics and Sun Publications. For Classics Illustrated, Nodel created the illustrations for many issues, such as Ivanhoe, Faust, Lion of the North, Les Misérables, and The Invisible Man.

In 1962, he illustrated Dr. No, the Classics adaptation of the eponymous James Bond spy thriller. The same year, Nodel worked on the Classics' revised adaptation of The Man Who Laughs, where his artwork showed a Gwynplaine far more disfigured than the character's appearance in either the 1928 film or the 1950, original Classics edition.
