Be the first to submit a review on this product! History books can be notoriously boring. Trying to combine instruction with amusement, the author of this curious book presents the events in the history of ancient Rome until the death of Caesar in a humorous way, with woodcuts that often look like comic caricatures.
After a humorous narration of the foundation and the royal period of Rome, the author goes on through the multiple episodes and wars of the Republic. After a century and a half, the book has not lost anything of its amusing character and it remains as before an entertaining approach to Roman history. The drawings by John Leech are well worth the price of admission Review by: Nicola Turner, Prudentia - September 28, The rolling narrative is written with fluency and flair and will provide both the beginner and the expert with an entertaining version of Republican history You might also be interested in:.
