    Select Epigrams from The Greek Anthology was published by Longmans, Green and Co. in 1890. The poems were edited and accompanied by prose translation and notes by J.W. Mackail.
    John William Mackail (1859-1945) was a classical scholar, literary critic and poet. In 1888 he married Burne-Jones's daughter Margaret (1866-1953) and was a close friend of William Morris whose biography he published in 1899. A committed socialist and educationalist, Mackail enjoyed an extraordinary career. He was awarded honorary degrees from no less than seven universities, including St. Andrews, Oxford, Cambridge and London and was appointed OM in 1935. He died in Kensington in December 1945.
