Book Description Condition: Antiquarian. Francis Cairns, Liverpool, 1981. IX,196p. Gilt titled hard bound with dust wrps. Series: ARCA, Classical and Medieval Texts, Papers and Monographs 6. 'This clumsily titled book consists of four chapters, one of each historian named, with a short general chapter called 'Classicising History in the Fifth Century AD', and then for each author a conspectus of fragments, i.e. a list of fragments indicating their arrangement and their provenance. It is this conspectus that will in the end be the most valuable part of the book. (.) B.'s treatment of the individual authors is as austere, though densely packed, as his general discussion. (.) This will be, for specialists, a most useful book. It is more 'material for history'(.) than the thing itself.' (AVERIL CAMERON in The Classical Review (New Series), 1983, pp.19-20). Antiquarian.
