The Poems of Sappho  (1924) 
by Edwin Marion Cox, with poems by Sappho and translations by various authors.

The poems of the poet Sappho, as collected by E. M. Cox, with translations by him and by earlier translators. His book expands upon the previous work by H. T. Wharton and includes "a considerable quantity of new material [that] has come to light in the fragmentary papyri found in the delta of the Nile. This present edition is an attempt to bring the subject more up to date, and at the same time to offer a number of new translations which it is hoped will be acceptable."
