Featuring all 57 engraved plates from a unique 19th century edition.
In 1776, English historian Edward Gibbon published the first volume of what was to become one of the most influential written evaluations of the classical world, and earn him the informal title of “the first modern historian of ancient Rome”.
This exclusive leather-bound collector set traces the history of Western Civilisation from the height of Imperial Rome to the fall of Byzantium, and has served for centuries as the foremost model for how history should be written. Featuring fifty-seven artistic renditions of ancient relics and monuments from a gorgeous nineteenth century edition of Gibbon’s work, The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire is a literary monument that will delight any fan of the ancient world.
