Book Description John Murray, 1852. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Complete set of 12 volumes, clearly bound as a set in the nineteenth century, but mixed issue, containing volumes from the first, second, third, and fourth editions, 1852-1857. Bound in full vellum with gilt spines, gilt rules on boards, marbled endpapers. Light dust-soiling typical of white vellum, several volumes with small splits to vellum at upper joints (no loose boards), repair to lower front joint of Volume I. Internally very clean, with the exception of some foxing to the flyleaves and title pages. Printing and the Mind of Man 321: "Although as biased as Macaulay's History of England and less scholarly than Mommsen's Roman History, Grote's History of Greece can be bracketed with these two works. Like them it was received with universal acclamation, was translated into French and German, shaped the European conception of its subject matter throughout the nineteenth century, and still merits respect as a monument of industrious Victorian scholarship.The History is.a paean in praise of political liberty, and he glorified the Athenian democracy as fervently as he misrepresented the despotism of the 'barbarian" Alexander the Great. Grote gave penetrating sketches of Greek intellectual life, and his enthusiasm for 'the noble, the good, and the beautiful' deeply influenced political and educational thought.".
