[Augustus] Everitt, Augustus - The Life of Rome's First Emperor. [Augustus] Everitt, Anthony. Augustus - The Life of Rome's First Emperor. First U.S Edition. New York, Random House, 2006. 16.5cm x 24cm. XXXVIII, 377 pages. Original Hardcover with original dustjacket. Excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear.

He found Rome made of cay and left it made of marble. As Rome's first emperor, Augustus transformed the unruly Republic into the greatest empire the world has ever seen. His consolidation and expansion of Roman power two thousand years ago laid the foundation for all of Western history to follow. Yet despite Augustus's accomplishments, very few biographers have concentrated on the man himself, instead choosing to chronicle the age in which he lived. Here, Anthony Everitt, the bestselling author of Cicero, gives a spellbinding and intimate account of his illustrious subject.

Includes seven maps, a family tree and the following chapters: Scenes From a Provincial Childhood, A Political Master Class, Fighting Neptune, Parthian Shots, Exercising Power, The Cult of Virtue, Growing the Empire, A Family at War, The Bitter End.

Bingen, Hellenistic Egypt: Monarchy, Society, Economy, Culture. Bingen, Jean. Hellenistic Egypt: Monarchy, Society, Economy, Culture. Edited and with an introduction by Roger S. Bagnall. Edinburgh, Edinburgh University Press, 2007. 15.5 x 23.5cm. (20), 302 pages, with maps. Original softcover. Excellent condition with only some minor text markings.

Hellenistic Egypt was a society created by Macedonian rule of the ancient civilisation of Egypt. It is framed by Alexander the Great at one end and Cleopatra VII at the other. This book sums up a lifetime of Jean Bingen's work on understanding how this state and its monarchy were created and sustained, how Greeks and Egyptians formed separate and yet connected parts of the society, and how the peculiar circumstances of the Ptolemaic kingdom created both opportunities and insoluble tensions. Like all of Bingen's work, it is marked by the influence of cultural sociology but is rooted in a deep knowledge of the Greek world. It is essential reading for students and accessible and fascinating reading for the general public interested in ancient history. It is introduced by Roger S. Bagnall and ends with a conclusion by Jean Bingen in which he reflects on the course of the history of Ptolemaic Egypt during the twentieth century. [From jacket notes]

[Catallus] Gregory, Horace The Poems of Catallus. [Catallus] Gregory, Horace. The Poems of Catallus. London, Thames and Hudson, 1956. 13 cm x 21 cm. 184 pages. Original Hardcover with illustrated dustjacket in protective Mylar. Very good condition with only very minor signs of external wear. A very slight tear at the top right of the dustjacket.

The poetry of Gaius Valerius Catullus was written towards the end of the Roman Republic. It describes the lifestyle of the poet and his friends, as well as, most famously, his love for the woman he calls Lesbia.

Catullus was a popular poet in the Renaissance and a central model for the neo-Latin love elegy. By 1347, Petrarch was an admirer and imitator who read the ancient poet in the Verona codex (the "V" manuscript). Catullus also influenced other humanist poets, including Panormita, Pontano, and Marullus.

Catullus influenced many English poets, including Andrew Marvell and Robert Herrick. Ben Jonson and Christopher Marlowe wrote imitations of his shorter poems, particularly Catullus 5, and John Milton wrote of the poet's "Satyirical sharpness, or naked plainness."

He has been praised as a lyricist and translated by writers including Thomas Campion, William Wordsworth, James Methven, and Louis Zukofsky. (Wikipedia).

Horace Gregory (April 10, 1898 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin – March 11, 1982 in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts) was a prize-winning American poet, translator of classic poetry, literary critic and college professor. (Wikipedia)

Clunn, The Quest For The Lost Roman Legions - Discovering The Varus Battlefield. Clunn, Tony. The Quest For The Lost Roman Legions - Discovering The Varus Battlefield. New York, Savas Beatie LLC, 2005. 15.5m x 23.5cm XXXIX, 371 pages. Original Hardcover with original dustjacket. Excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear.

Fuelled by an unshakeable curiosity and a burning interest in the story of the Roman invasion of Germany, Tony Clunn, a British officer stationed in Germany, delved into the nooks and crannies of times long past. By sheer persistence and good luck, he turned the foundation of German national history on its ear. Convinced the battle took place north of Osnabruck, Germany, Clunn set out to prove his point. His discovery of large Roman coins in the late 1980's, followed by a flood of thousands of other artifacts (including weapons and human remains) ended the mystery.The Quest for The Lost Roman Legions is a masterful retelling of Clunn's search to discover the Varus battlefield. His well-paced, carefully conceived and vivid writing style makes for a compelling read from the first page to the last as he alternates between his incredible modern quest and the ancient tale of the Roman occupation of Germany that ultimately ended so tragically in the peat bogs of Kalkriese. Includes six maps, and several pages of photos of found artifacts.
