This boxed set contains volumes 4, 5 and 6 of "The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire." In the last three volumes of his masterwork, Gibbons continues to display the lucidity and literary vigor that is his hallmark. He tells the story of the Eastern Roman Empire at Byzantium from its inception to the rise of the Islamic civilization that would eventually supplant it, to its final dissolution in the fall of Constantinople. Three green fabric bound hardcovers with gold imprinted bindings and slip-cased in a sturdy, illustrated box.
