[A huge, 12½ x 11 inch sumptuously illustrated history] Rediscover the glory that was ancient Rome, the civilization that gave the western world much of its government, architecture, art and literature, in this lavishly illustrated history by Timothy R. Roberts, who recounts with verve and insight the chronicles of one of the most influential eras of all time. Situated on the banks of the Tiber, surrounded by the famed seven hills, ancient Rome was the center of the western world for centuries. Within a quarter century of its fou8nding by Romulus in 753 B.C., Rome’s citizens established a republic, which gave its people unprecedented rights and privileges. Over the next several centuries Rome also developed a taste for conquest; its dominion gradually extended throughout much of the European continent and into northern Africa. Ironically Rome’s might overpowered its own government, and republic yielded to empire. The glory days of the Roman Empire would last well into the fourth century A.D., and long after its inevitable decline and fall, Rome’s legacy lives on. This lively history brings each aspect of ancient Rome to life for the modern reader, from the great leaders, and from the artists whose works are still studied today to the daily lives of ordinary citizens. Here too are explanations of the formidable achievements in law, engineering, architecture, government, literature, and philosophy that ensure that the legacy of ancient Rome will live on forever. “Ancient Rome” features stunning photographs of architectural and artistic treasures, plus colorful maps that depict the varying parameters of the Roman Empire though its many phases of conquest. In addition a timeline highlighting the most significant events in the history of the Empire provides an overview of the period. A richly illustrated and absorbing account, “Ancient Rome” presents a fascinating picture of one of the world’s greatest civilizations. The author, Timothy R. Roberts Ph.D. has taught history for more than thirty years. His previous books includes “Gift of the Nile: Chronicles of Ancient Egypt”, “Ancient Civilizations”, and three volumes of the “Myths of the World” series: “Classical Deities and Heroes”, “Norse Gods and Heroes”, and “The Celts in Myth and Legend”. In addition he writes articles on military history that have been published by the U.S. National Guard. CONDITION: Brand new, MASSIVE (12"*10") hardcover w/dustjacket (176 pages).

PROFESSIONAL REVIEWS: REVIEW: This gorgeously illustrated volume offers an accessible history of the empire upon which so much of the Western World's government, art, and literature is based. Historian Timothy R. Roberts takes readers on a journey to the heart of the Roman Empire, recounting the Empire's history from its mythical founding by Romulus and Remus through its days of glory to its downfall with the advent of Christianity and the invasion of the Empire by the barbaric Huns. At the height of their power, the Romans ruled over a vast dominion, built monumental architecture, created timeless literature, and developed an enduring system of milennia after the Empire's decline. In accessible and entertaining prose, author Roberts brings ancient Rome to life. Readers will meet some of the Empire's most intriguing citizens, including Gaius Mucius, who unflinchingly thrust his hand into a blazing fire in front of Rome's enemies to illustrate the strength of Roman soldiers, and thus became Gaius Mucius Scaevola, or "Lefty". Virgil, author of the “Aeneid”, who suffered such a spectacular lack of success in love that his friends nicknamed him "The Virgin". Depraved Emperors Caligula and Nero, whose reigns remain legendary for their excesses.

READER REVIEWS: REVIEW: What a splendid book! Rather than merely a dry narrative history, this book is loaded with hundreds or superb pictures. It transforms mere history into a compelling account of the ancient Roman world. Bound to enthrall the serious ancient history buff, this would entertain even those with no interest in ancient history. It will definitely draw you in with well written text and simply amazing photography. REVIEW: I really loved this book! Every morning while drinking my coffee, I would re-enter the ancient Roman world through large beautiful color photographs and clear, fascinating text. REVIEW: This book is filled with outstanding photographs, prints, drawings, maps, and architectural plans that will be useful to anyone in the business of teaching social studies. This is one of those wonderfully inexpensive oversized hardcover books that makes you feel good just by owning it. I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. This book is shipped FOR FREE via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). All domestic shipments and most international shipments will include free USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site and free insurance coverage). A small percentage of international shipments may require an additional fee for tracking and/or delivery confirmation. If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the book in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, we will give discounts for multiple purchases. International orders are welcome, but shipping costs are substantially higher. Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insuredshipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). There is also a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+). Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country. You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request. ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees – even in the USA. That’s why all of our domestic shipments (and most international) shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and all shipments (international and domestic) are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs). Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world – but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology. I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
