Beautifully bound copy of the 1554 edition of the History of Appian of Alexandra - Full Latin Title Appiani Alexandrini Romanarum historiarum : de bellis Punicis liber, bellis Syriacis liber, de bellis Parthicis liber published by Basilee: Froben. This edition was obviously meticulously rebound at some point for a personal library collection. The binding is tight and the inside pages clean.

There are 506 pages not including a fairly lengthy unpaged index. It is dated on the last printed page which we show in the third photograph.
The book measures 12" X 8 1/4". The ends of the pages are tipped in gilt (see photo 2).

Appian of Alexandria (c. AD 95 – c. AD 165) was a Roman historian of Greek origin during the reigns of Emperors of Rome Trajan, Hadrian, and Antoninus Pius. Appian began writing his history around the middle of the second century AD. Only sections from half of the original 24 books survive today. The most important remnants of Appian's work are the five books on the Civil Wars (books 13-17) of the Roman History. These five books stand out because they are the only comprehensive, meticulous source available on an extremely significant historical period, during which Roman politics were in turmoil because of factional strife.

We are adding more rare books from an estate collection this month. Check our shop often to see what we having coming in.
