Format: Leather Bound Verified Purchase
Tacitus is considered the most difficult Roman historian to translate and some of this follows through in the translation; Tacitus is the Hemingway of Rome, assuming readers know the subjects he's covering and are reading him for the subversive context rather than for basic knowledge. He famously sums up eight centuries of Roman history in the first pages, before delving deeper into his main obsession, freedom. He would be a must read for a well educated conservative if that were not a dying breed.

This edition is beautifully crafted and worth every penny and then some. If you recognize the author and know Roman history it is a steal. If you are interested in the subject and don't know Roman history I'd work my way through a few library books first and then buy this wonderful copy. It's perfect for some one who knows what s/he is getting; it's a bit much for an introduction unless you're a Mensa quality thinker however.
