A History of Greece to the Death of Alexander the Great by J. B. Bury; Rusell Meiggs; (£14.00)Publisher: MacMillan — 1977Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0333154932]Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Notably rubbed at the outside edges of the cover and spine with fading to both wrappers. Leans. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Reprint of the 4th Edition. [First: 1900] Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The first edition of Bury’s famous book was published in 1900, on the eve of Sir Arthur Evans’s dramatic excavations at Cnossus. In the second edition (1913) Bury rewrote the first chapter in the light of the evidence from Crete. In the third edition (1951), prepared by Russell Meiggs, the progress of archaeology again demanded a rewriting of much of the first chapter, and changes were made in other chapters. By the early 1970s, however, so much new material had accumulated that it was decided to prepare a fourth edition. The publishers are fortunate to have been able to call again on Russell Meiggs. This revision (1975) is more complete than the last. However, although Bury’s text has been widely changed in the light of new work and the further sifting of evidence, great care has been taken to preserve the basic character of the original; in particular, no change has been made in the scale and emphasis of Bury’s History. The revised text is presented in a modern format. The original maps have been redrawn and new ones added, with the inclusion of a fold-out map at the end of the book. The illustrations have been revised and improved and the section of notes has been enlarged, with the addition of useful bibliographies.”Notes: Size: 9¾" x 7¼". 577 pages.

The History of the Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire: 28 Selected Chapters by Edward Gibbon (£9.50)Publisher: Wordsworth Editions — 1998Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 1853264997]Condition: Very Good. Light reading creases to the spine otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: Edited and annotated, with an Introduction by Antony Lentin and Brian Norman. From the cover: “Gibbon’s The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, published between 1776 and 1788, is the undisputed masterpiece of English historical writing which can only perish with the language itself. Its length alone is a measure of its monumental quality — seventy-one chapters, of which twenty-eight appear in full in this edition. With style, learning and wit, Gibbon takes the reader through the history of Europe from the second century AD to the fall of Constantinople in 1453 — an enthralling account by ‘the greatest of the historians of the Enlightenment’. This edition includes Gibbon’s footnotes and quotations, here translated for the first time, together with brief explanatory comments, a precis of the chapters not included, 16 maps, a glossary, and a list of emperors.”Notes: Size: B Format (7¾" x 5¼").

From the cover: “The love story of the Emperor Vespasian, who brought peace to Rome after years of strife, and his mistress, the freed slave woman Antonia Caenis, this book recreates Ancient Rome’s most turbulent period — the reigns of Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius and Nero, and Vespasian’s rise to power. As their forbidden romance blossoms, she is embroiled in political intrigue, while he embarks on a glorious career. Years pass, then Vespasian risks all in the climactic struggle for power — bringing hope for Rome, but a threat to the relationship that has endured so long. The Course of Honour will delight not only the fans of Lindsey Davis’s bestselling Falco novels, but anyone with an interest in the era that inspired Robert Graves’s classic, I, Claudius.”Notes: Size: A Format (Approx. 4¼" x 7").

Roman Britain by I. A. Richmond (£4.00)Publisher: Penguin — 1964Binding: Paperback Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wraps. Pages lightly age-tanned. Slightly fragile with age now.Description: Vol. I in the series. Later printing. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “This book provides a general picture of the Roman province of Britain during the period from A.D. 43 until the fifth century. It does not attempt to furnish a continuous historical account, for which neither the written sources nor the archaeological material can provide enough evidence. The nearest approach to this is in the description of the military subjugation and organization of the province, dealt with here in considerable detail in an attempt to relate it to general policy, and to give a closer account of its changes than is usually attempted. The towns are considered analytically, with emphasis on their social function in the several communities of which they were the centres, and upon their connexions both with the Roman state and the native tribe, and attention is given to the smaller centres both in civil and military areas. Religious cults, their buildings, and their artistic expression are brought into relation with the provincial social order. Commerce and the countryside are the themes of other chapters, and the development of provincial resources in agriculture arid raw products is described. The book is illustrated by eight pages of plates.”Notes: Size: A Format (7" x 4½"). In the Pelican History of England series. 240 pages.
