The History of Ancient Greece, Its Colonies and Conquests... Part the Second; Embracing the History of the Ancient World, from the Dominion of Alexander to that of Augustus; with a Survey of Precedind Periods, and a Continuation the History of Arts and Letters (Volume II Only)

By John Gillies

London: T. Cadell and W. Davies, 1820. New Edition. Full leather. Very good. A very good "New edition." Full leather boards. Gilt trim. 5 raised bands. Shelfwear to head and tail of spine. Corners are rubbed. 4 cm x 3 mm loss on back of book. Binding is sturdy, square, and tight. Marbled endpapers.

His History of Ancient Greece, its Colonies and Conquests was published in 1786; it was translated into French and German. This work was written with a strong monarchist bias. See for instance the opening 'dedication to the king': 'The history of Greece exposes the dangerous turbulence of democracy, and arraigns the despotism of tyrants. By describing the incurable evils inherent in every form of Republican policy, it evinces the inestimable benefits resulting to liberty itself from the lawful dominion of hereditary kings, and the steady operation of well-regulated monarchy'." --Wikipedia

Livia: First Lady of Imperial Rome

By Anthony A. Barrett

New Haven: Yale University Press, 2002. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. Fine/fine. A fine first edition, first printing, in a fine dust jacket. Charcoal paper boards with gold foil stamping on spine. No flaws. Dust jacket now protected in a clear, removable, archival cover. 424 pp. Octavo, 6 x 9 1/2 inches tall. Livia (58 BC-29 AD), the wife of the first Roman emperor, Caesar Augustus, and mother of the second, Tiberius, wielded power at the centre of Roman politics for most of her long life. Livia has been portrayed as a cunning and sinister schemer, but in this biography (the first in English devoted to her) Livia emerges as a much more complex individual. Achieving influence unprecedented for a woman, she won support and even affection from her contemporaries and was widely revered after her death. Anthony A. Barrett, author of acclaimed biographies of Caligula and Agrippina, here examines Livia's life and her role in Roman politics. He recounts the events of her life, from her early days as a member of the wealthy and powerful Claudian family through her final conflicts with the new Emperor Tiberius. Barrett also considers how Livia helped shape the pattern of Roman government that prevailed for the next four centuries. - Dust jacket
