Inscribed by the author on the half-title. Quarter bound in publisher's red cloth over beige boards, gilt lettering on spine, maps on endpapers. Illustrated with drawings and maps by the author. Includes extensive Glossary and a Pronunciation Guide. "The First Man in Rome" is McCullough's first book in her brilliant series on the life of Julius Caesar, "The Masters of Rome." This book focuses on the rise of Lucius Cornelius Sulla, who threatened to end the career, and life, of the young Caesar and Gaius Marius, the victorious general who drove back the invading Gauls and Caesar's uncle by marriage. "The First Man in Rome" sweeps the reader into an irresistibly vivid world of political intrigue, danger, wars, assassinations, devastating upheaval, intricately passionate family alliances and rivalries, and undeniable reality. The richness and accuracy of her historical detail provides a fitting background for the characters, who are themselves historic. McCullough's series of books are perhaps the finest historical novels based on Roman history that have ever been produced, and provide the reader with unequaled absorption into Roman life, suspense, excitement and minutely accurate Roman history. McCullough's books in her "Masters of Rome" series include: "The First Man in Rome" (1990); "The Grass Crown" (1991); "Fortune's Favorites" (1993); "Caesar's Women" (1996); "Caesar" (1997); "The October Horse" (2002); and "Antony and Cleopatra" (2007). .
