Item Description: Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner & Co., London, 1928. Boards. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. First Printing Thus. First complete English translation. Pp. viii; 439. Gray/blue boards, slight fade to spine, lettered gilt to spine. Previous owner's name and date of purchase to frt. paste-down, a very good copy lacking jacket. "The Byznatine Princess, Anna Comnena, is a name known to many, if only from Sir Walter Scott's 'Count Robert of Paris,' and her 'Alexiad' which is a history of her father's reign, which has often been drawn upon and quoted by writers on the 11th century, but the entire work has never been translated into English before. It presents to us the almost incredibly strenous life led by an Emperor, who was not only a warrior, incessantly engaged in repelling the foes who attacked the Empire from all sides, but was also interested in education and science and above all in theology. A most striking feature is the vivid pen-pictures Anna draws of the personal appearance of some of the protagonists, e.g of Alexius and his girl-wife Irene, and of the sturdy Norman Bohemund. The reader will probably agree with Gibbon's remark: 'What made any man desire to become Emperor?'" Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 000619
