Unless I'm very much mistaken, this is a reprint of the whole Oxford
Classical Text of Homer edited by TW Allen and originally published early
in the 20th century. Although I've not seen it myself, it's my
understanding that the two volumes of the Iliad are bound together in
leather as are the two volumes of the Odyssey; the other volume is probably
the fifth volume containing the Homeric Hymns and the remaining fragments
of the Epic Cycle.
