?Before the publication of Dr. Starr's work very little was known about the organization and history of the Roman imperial navy.... He has produced a study ... which is fundamental and not likely to be superceded for many years to come.?-American Historical Review

Book Description ARE, 1993. Hard Cover. Condition: New. Third Edition. Excellent New Book. Third edition. The Roman Imperial Navy, written by Chester G. Starr in 1941, has remained the reference book on naval matters during the Roman Empire. In the second edition of 1959 the author corrected some minor misprints. The present editor could make only two additions to this outstanding work. The first was to supply the reader with a current bibliography which follows the List of Abbreviations. The second was to provide plates which help illustrate Roman imperial war ships and related vessels. 250pp. Seller Inventory # 200146
