About this Item

First edition, American issue imprinted McGraw-Hill but produced by Thames and Hudson in England and printed in Germany. With 727 illustrations, 226 of which in beautiful full color on full page plates, 501 black and white photographs, drawings, maps and chronological charts. Folio, publisher’s original tan buckram lettered on the upper cover and spine in gilt, in the original color pictorial dustjacket. 360pp. A fine and appealing copy, the paper used in the production of the text block is prone to browning and this copy is toned lightly and evenly as is typical, but the color plates on glossy paper are all very fresh and bright, the cloth in excellent state, the jacket with a bit of edge wear, minor tears and a touch of rubbing but still very attractive. SUPERB PICTURES OF THE ANCIENT WORLD AS THE GREEKS AND ROMANS SAW IT THEMSELVES. This authoritative work from the publisher’s famed series on Civilization covers the full classical period of Greece and Rome. It was co-written by ten of the most distinguished authorities on the subject and is magnificently illustrated. It remains one of the great printed works on the subject. Even today, 25 centuries later, it is difficult to fully realize the great achievements of Greece and Rome. Only two centuries before Praxiteles and Sappho the Greeks had no idea how to cut marble or write, but within that short span of two hundred years Western Civilization had fully taken shape. All paths in the history of Western art and literature head straight back to Athens and the Roman Empire gave Europe a definition of security and justice that has been its inspiration for two thousand years.
