THE CLIMAX OF ROME, Grant, Michael

The period from the accession of Marcus Aurelius in AD 161 to the death of Constantine in 337 is often seen as little more than a protracted interval between the glories of the ancient world and the genesis of medieval Europe. Michael Grant's landmark study shows a much more creative picture: for despite internal strife and wars along vast frontiers, there was a stupendous military achievement which preserved the Empire for several centuries. This overall stability allowed Roman civilization to flourish, combining "an artistic, literary, spiritual and political brilliance with unparalleled lavishness". In these two centuries Michael Grant finds the climax of a "terrible but marvellous age". Michael Grant, one of the world's greatest writers on ancient history, has been a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge; Professor of Humanities at the University of Edinburgh; President and Vice-Chancellor of the Queen's University, Belfast; Vice-Chancellor of the University of Khartoum; and President of the Classical Association, the Royal Numismatic Society and the Virgil Society.

THE TWELVE CAESARS, Grant, Michael
7 Grant, Michael THE TWELVE CAESARS
NY Charles Scribner's Sons 1975 0684144026 / 9780684144023 First Edition Thus. First Printing Hard Cover Near Fine with no dust jacket 
First Printing (full number line). Publisher's full black cloth, gilt lettering on spine. 8vo. xi, (i), 282 pp. llustrated with 38 black & white photographs on 16 pages and four maps. Includes Notes; Bibliography; Genealogical Tables; Dates of the Twelve Caesars; Dates of Subsequent Emperors; and Index. "The personalities of the Twelve Caesars at Rome, Julius Caesar and the first eleven Roman emperors who followed him, have profoundly impressed themselves upon the world. In this classic example of the unique blend of scholarship and readability that has made him one of the most popular authors of ancient history, Michael Grant penetrates the fog of rumor and speculation surrounding these dynamic leaders, and explores the biographer Suetonius' claims about their sexual abnormalities and other aberrations." "The Twelve Caesars bore the perilous responsibility of governing an empire comparable in its magnitude to the United States today. It is a timeless concern of mankind to measure the power that such men, and their advisors, wield. For example, are we justified after a study of Tacitus in applying to the Roman Caesars Lord Acton's saying that "absolute power corrupts absolutely?" This is one of a number of questions, relating to their exercise of authority, that Michael Grant endeavors to answer in this timeless work. "Michael Grant, one of the world's greatest writers on ancient history, has been a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge; Professor of Humanities at the University of Edinburgh; President and Vice-Chancellor of the Queen's University, Belfast; Vice-Chancellor of the University of Khartoum; and President of the Classical Association and the Virgil Society.

LEGIONARY: THE ROMAN SOLDIER'S UNOFFICIAL MANUAL, Matyszak, Philip
9 Matyszak, Philip LEGIONARY: THE ROMAN SOLDIER'S UNOFFICIAL MANUAL
NY Thames and Hudson 2009 0500251517 / 9780500251515 1st American Edition (stated). 1 Hard Cover As New in As New dust jacket 
Publisher's full red cloth, gilt lettering on spine, blind-stamped medallion on cover, black endpapers. 12mo. 208 pp. Illustrated with 92 photographs and drawings, 31 of them in color. Includes a map of the Roman Empire, Glossary, recommendations for further reading, and a detailed Index. The year is AD100 and Rome stands supreme and unconquerable, from the desert sands of Mesopotamia to the misty highlands of Caledonia. But the might of Rome rests entirely on the shoulders of the legionaries, who stand strong against the barbarian hordes, pushing back the frontiers of the empire. This book a kind of unofficial guide for the new recruit, written in the same engaging and informative style as "Ancient Rome on Five Denarii a Day" tells you how to get in and get on in the legions, the best places to serve, life in camp, on campaign and in battle, and such things as how to stop your armour going rusty and how to storm a city. It will have immense appeal to all those who enjoy ancient history, but who want to be entertained at the same time. The work is structured in organization and tone much like two of Matyszak's previous books, Ancient Rome on 5 Denarii a Day and Ancient Athens on 5 Drachma a Day. The conceit of the book is that it is written as if the reader actually were living in ancient times. In this case, the timeframe is during the reign of Trajan, at the height of the empire and its military glory, and just before the emperor's famous Dacian campaigns. The reader is presumed to be a Roman subject about to enter martial service; hence the title of the work, which really does come across as a handy how-to manual. The narrator is presented for the most part as a grizzled old veteran relaying his key experience to new recruits. However, the narrator is also somehow blessed by the gods with knowledge of both Rome's earliest past as well as the distant future, affording a broader historical perspective when necessary. . This book and DJ are in pristine condition. AN . Book Club Edition. B&W&Color illustrations. 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall. 208 pp
