About this Item

Three volumes: Third Edition of vol. I, Second Edition of vol. II, First Edition of vol. III. Pp. xx, 578, [2] corrigenda; xi, 676; xvi, 489, [10] ads. Bound uniformly in publisher's ribbed cloth, blocked in blind with large central arabesque, gilt-lettered spines. Very light shelfwear to bindings, a couple of corners bumped, ink signature on each fly leaf, but otherwise a nice bright set. Of the five volumes comprising Arnold's History of Rome, the first two were published during Arnold's lifetime, in 1838 and 1840, and bring the history up to the end of the First Punic War. The third volume, published after Arnold's death by J.C. Hare in 1843, continues the narrative to the end of the Second Punic War. Two more volumes (not offered here) were published in 1845 on the History of the Later Roman Commonwealth, to complete the history. Though he is best remembered for his educational reforms as Headmaster of Rugby, Arnold's classical studies, especially his masterful History of Rome, will always hold a high place in the history of English literature.
