Ancient Rome and its connection with the Christian Religion

£45.00

Product description

An outline of the history of the city from its first foundation by Romulus (B.C. 753) down to the erection of the chair of St. Peter in the Ostrian Cemetery (A.D. 42-47). Containing numerous illustrations in wood engravings of the ancient monuments, sculpture, coinage, and localities connected with the history of the city. With the addition of a series of engravings illustrating the formation and the antiquities of the Christian catacombs.

Hard back book. No dust jacket. Ex-library book. The cover has some water staining and the top part of the spine is missing and has been replaced by a piece of brown paper. The spine has 'Formby' (the author) and '937' on. As 937 appears in places inside the book, I take this as the library classification. There is a Chester Reference Library sticker inside the front cover. There are Chester Library and Withdrawn for Sale, stamps on the first few pages, and Chester Library stamps on various pages throughout the book. These stamps are in margins or on blank pages and do not obscure the text. The page edges are gilded although the colour has faded. The pages are generally in very good condition and the text and illustrations are clear.

Overall a lovely book only let down by the state of its cover.
