DECLINE AND FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE


DECLINE AND FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE

EDWARD GIBBON    Book Number: 25261    Product format: Paperback

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; 71 chapters, of which 28 appear in full in this edition. With style, learning and wit, Gibbon takes the reader through the history of Europe from the 2nd century 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 précis of the chapters not included, 16 maps, a glossary and a list of emperors. 1,088pp, paperback. Great value.
