THUCYDIDES. [EIGHT BOOKES OF THE PELOPONNESIAN WARRE.: Thucydides] Jowett B[enjamin],

Item Description: Oxford At the Clarendon Press 1900, 1900. 2 volumes. First revised edition of Jowett’s translation. 8vo, very handsomely bound in fine and appealing bindings of contemporary full vellum over stiff boards, the spines with honey morocco labels ruled, stippled and lettered in gilt, the upper boards emblazoned with gilt crests, fine marbled endpapers, t.e.g., front endpaper to Vol. I with engraved prize label. cxii, 267; 514 including a very extensive index pp. A very fine set in handsome and appealing bindings, internally near pristine, the vellum just a touch mellowed by time as would be expected, hinges perfect, no evidence of wear to the bindings which remain near as pristine. JOWETT’S GREAT TRANSLATION OF THIS CLASSIC TEXT AND ONE OF THE GREATEST WORKS OF HISTORICAL WRITING, BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED AND BOUND. Thucydides classic account of the Peloponesian war in the best modern translation. Jowett was Master of Balliol College and Regius professor of Greek at Oxford University. His translation of Plato remains the classic and this translation of Thucydides is the most accurate and scholarly to date. Although perhaps less lyrical then the translations of Hobbes and Smith, Jowett’s extensive essays, notes and commentaries add greatly to his thorough text. ‘Thucydides stands alone among the men of his own age and has no superior of any age, in the width of mental grasp which could seize the general significance of particular events. The political education of mankind began in Greece, and in the time of Thucydides their political life was still young. Thucydides knew only the small city-commonwealthe on the one hand, and on the other the vast barbaric kingdom; and yet, as has been well said of him, "there is hardly a problem in the science of government which the statesman will not find, if not solved, at any rate handled, in the pages of this universal master."’ The author’s intention from the beginning was to write a work that would survive the ages; it was not "written for display, to make an immediate impression," he wrote, but to be a "possession for all time." Since this is the only account of the war in existence, there is no definitive way to judge its accuracy; nonetheless, most scholars accept Thucydides’ views because of the authority and credibility of his voice. " Thucydides displayed a passion for accuracy and exactness that no other ancient historian approached. . . . Moreover, he saw history as explicable entirely in human terms without recourse to the supernatural. . . . He reported what could be observed, and did not ponder what part if any the gods played in it." [Oxford Companion to Classical Literature]. Bookseller Inventory # 23905
