Two volumes in original slipcases. “Herodotus’ The Histories combines an exhilarating account of the defeat of the mighty Persian empire by a shaky alliance of Greek city-states with entertaining digressions, astonishing facts and scurrilous gossip. It earned Herodotus the epithet ‘the father of history’ from Cicero and 2,500 years after it was written, this foundation work of Western literature remains a cornerstone of every library.” Illustrated and decorated by Edward Bawden.  Condition: red cloth slipcases a little worn, otherwise very good.
