About this Item

Elephant folio. VI, 7-723, [3]pp. Full maroon morocco. Engraved frontispiece. Decorative tailpieces. Remarkable edition of the works of Flavius Josephus, providing crucial information about the First Jewish-Roman War and an important literary source material for understanding the context of the Dead Sea Scrolls and late Temple Judaism. In point of literary talent Josephus ranks among the leading writers in world literature. His style is epic, his portrayals plastic, his gift of description captivates the reader alike by its fidelity and its colorful presentation" (Encyclopedia Judaica). "The Jewish War" recounts the Jewish revolt against Roman occupation (66-70). "Antiquities of the Jews" recounts the history of the world from a Jewish perspective for an ostensibly Roman audience. These works provide valuable insight into First century Judaism and the background of Early Christianity. This book is exquisitely illustrated with 2 full-page color-outlined maps, 1 large folding plan of Jerusalem, and 58 copper engravings after the foremost English artists, including Metz, Moreau, and Stothard (three of which were engraved by William Blake, facing pages 13, 65 and 76). Age wear on binding with spine and edges age-toned/discolored. Head and tail of spine partly torn. Heavy rubbing along edges. Modern endpapers. Minor and sporadic foxing and browning throughout. 1/3 of the Jerusalem folding map torn and missing from its lower center to its upper right. Binding in overall fair, interior in good+ condition.
