Roman Ostia

£24.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Roman Ostia - Russell Meiggs

OUP, special second edition for Sandpiper Books Limited, 1997. pp 622 plus 40 annotated b/w plates.

Good dust jacket in holly green, rather rubbed and scratched to the faces but no tears and very few chips. Excellent black cloth boards with gold titles to spine. Frontispiece b/w plate of Ostia from the air in 1943.

This reference book appears to have seen virtually no use, despite the worthy pedigree of its author. Plenty of Latin quotes along the way.

At the back is an A3 sized fold out map of ancient Ostea, tucked between the ever changing Tiber and the Adriatic. It was probably the evolving river that proved to be Ostea's downfall, giving way to Portus as Rome's gateway to the world.

Oxfam Bookshop Market Harborough

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller. Oxfam bookshops offer a wider selection of books than most shops, from modern fiction and leisure interest to more specialist subjects, classics, and rare or collectable books. We also stock an attractive range of greetings cards and a good selection of stationery. Come and browse!

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
