Title: The History of Rome, 1888
Author: Theodor Mommsen
Publisher: London, Richard Bentley and Son
A late 19th century edition of Mommsen’s History of Rome, in four volumes. There is a folding map present to volume two.
These volumes have been finely bound in full leather, bearing the prize binding crests of Bristol Grammar School.
Found finely bound volumes in octavo, XV+511, 479, 478, VIII+681 pages
On note of condition, these volumes are in fair to good shape, with some rubbing and wear to the bindings, and stress to the joints, with the front covers of volumes one and two starting, and volume four’s front cover delicately holding on. The title labels are lacking to two volumes, with one to volume three in the process of peeling away. There is very little foxing or staining throughout, and pen notation to the margins of several pages.
