Cornelii Taciti - De Origine et Situ Germanorum

£17.99

Product description

Tacitus wrote the Germania in 78 AD, originally entitled On the Origin and Situation of the Germanic Peoples, was a historical and ethnographic work on the Germanic tribes outside the Roman Empire.

This edition was first published in 1938 some 40 years after Furneaux' book on the subject which was by then generally considered to be out of date. It contains important new material and commentaries by the editor, J G C Anderson. It has some 28 photographs from various museums and also two fold out maps.

Mainly in English, the original text in Latin is included which contains numerous notes in pencil - the rest of the book is unmarked.

There is a subscription on the frontispiece reading: 'Julie Essex, June 17th 1957'.

Complete with original price-clipped dust jacket which has some wear, small tears and fading. The book itself is in a good clean condition other than the pencil notes mentioned above, and light foxing to cut edges.
