Herodoti historiae

£20.00

Product description

In this new edition of Herodotus' Histories, Nigel Wilson has revised the original Oxford Classical Text by the Danish scholar C. Hude, published in 1906 and last revised in 1927. As well as incorporating much of the valuable work on the text that has been conducted since the original edition, in particular that of J. Enoch Powell and Paul Maas, Wilson has taken into account new readings from over 80 papyri. In addition, clarity in the apparatus criticus has been improved by the collation of two previously neglected medieval manuscripts, which belong to the so-called Roman family. A number of passages remain puzzling, and Wilson proposes new solutions and provides plausible emendations wherever possible. The editor has also written a commentary volume, Herodotea, to accompany this edition, in which he explains many of the editorial decisions he made while revising this key classical text.

Oxfam Bookshop Chiswick

Oxfam Books & Music Turnham Green is a local favourite for reasonably priced second hand books, CD's, DVD's and vinyl. Come along and have a good browse...


Turn left at Turnham Green tube, head under the bridge and we're a short walk along on the left.  Alternatively, head up Turnham Green Terrace from Chiswick High Road, and we're further up on the right.  Local bus routes include the E3, 27, 94, 237 and 272.


Donations of books, CD's DVD's and vinyl are very welcome.  If coming by car, you can stop to unload on the double yellow lines on the same side of the road as the shop, but on no account mount the pavement or park at the bus stop on the opposite side as you will be fined.  Overall, it's less tense to come to our side entrance on Thornton Avenue - access from Chiswick High Road, follow the No Through Road signs, and at the end you will see our door which has a grill on it and a buzzer to press for attention.  


We're looking forward to seeing you soon!
