The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (eight volumes)

Edward Gibbon

The Folio Society 1997

Binding:  Hardback  |  Condition: Very Good  | 

Attractive faux-vellum style Folio Society set of Gibbon's revolutionary history of the Roman Empire including his interpretation of its decline and fall. Not just a landmark in the genre of history writing but also as an example of Enlightenment thinking. Features b/w images throughout. 8 volumes in two slipcases. Some shelfwear to slipcase. Light marking to spines. Contents crisp and clean. Very good overall. *Due to size and weight, extra shipping fees will apply to overseas orders*
