(New York: Dorset Press, 1984).

Michael Grant was an English classicist, numismatist and author of numerous popular books on ancient history. His 1956 translation of Tacitus’s Annals of Imperial Rome remains a standard of the work. Having studied and held a number of academic posts in the United Kingdom and the Middle East, he retired early to devote himself fully to writing. He once described himself as "one of the very few freelances in the field of ancient history: a rare phenomenon". As a popularizer, his hallmarks were his prolific output and his unwillingness to oversimplify or talk down to his readership. Item #23771

First Dorset Press Edition, Revised. 8vo, publisher’s gray boards backed in maroon cloth, the spine lettered in gilt. In the original dustjacket. xi, 347. Very fine, the book unread and essentially pristine and as new, the jacket with only the most meager of age evidence, but no chipping or wear.
