Product Description

Originally published in the 18th century, Edward Gibbon's classic work still retains its place in history as one of the first "modern histories." Using primary documents, Gibbons advocated the now-traditional interpretation of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire due to Roman decadence and loss of virtue.

Edward Gibbon's classic timeless work of ancient Roman history in 6 volumes collected into 2 boxed sets, in beautiful, enduring hardcover editions with elegant green cloth-sewn bindings, gold stamped covers, and silk ribbon markers.
