Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire by Edward Gibbon

Book Description

The first three volumes of Gibbon's Decline And Fall (the western empire) were published by Everyman in 1993. Volumes 4-6 complete the set which is now available for the first time in many years. This year is the bicentenary of Gibbon's death, which has been widely noticed in the press, but even after two hundred years his book is still an authoritative work on Roman history. What is more, it remains wonderfully readable: witty, elegant and intriguing, full of the author's own personality. The six-volume Everyman edition - the only complete one now available-prints the entire text of the book with all Gibbon's own notes, later editorial commentaries, maps, tables, descriptive tables of contents, indices, appendices and two magisterial essays on the author and his work by Hugh Trevor-Roper.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Gibbon observed that history was a record of 'little more than the crimes, follies, and misfortunes of mankind'. In one of the great works of historical writing, elegant, erudite, and full of ironic wit, he covers the 13 centuries of the Roman Empire in the West and the East, from the rule of Trajan and the Antonines to the capture of Constantinople by the Turks in 1453. Although some of the facts have been superseded by modern scholarship, this monumental work (published 1776-1788) has shaped our view of the ancient world and its connection with our own. John Julius Norwich comments that 'there is hardly a page without an unforgettable character sketch or a brilliantly told story, and the humour is unfailing'. (Kirkus UK)
