About this Item

Large paper presentation copy of this Byzantine history by a hold-out pagan who often took a jaundiced view of the policies, practices and actions of the Christian rulers. As stated on the title page, this is the first published version in Italian, and that in itself is significant as scholarship was emerging from the clerical yoke which had stifled it in so many ways following the Counter-Reformation on the Italian peninsula. [iv], 316 pp. 6 full page engravings; folding map of Armenia, Media, etc. -- the area between the Black and Caspian Seas. 4to, about 30 by 21 cm, or 11 by 8 inches. A few pages at rear remain uncut. Some scattered light foxing. A little heavier on half-title. Later decorated cloth boards with unusual red sunburst-like diaper pattern, which is bound in red leather spine. Boards are of a card stock thickness and don't lay entirely flat but flatten easily when shelved. Binding is tight. More on the substance of the work: the Church for obvious reasons sought to discredit him and his history, and by the same token, he has had his proponents for challenging the received history. This version of the work is especially scarce. Bookseller Inventory # 001337

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
