on an otherwise hard to find text. I got tired of getting the old Loeb translations on interlibrary loan and having to give them back before I got very far. There is no information in this book about the text, but presumably it is the Dewing translation. The volume is nicely done, and the text looks good, so if you just want the story without the Greek and without any editorial assistance, at a great price, this is for you.
I have not actually read it yet, but Amazon sent me the review form, so I am responding. With something like this, the shopper really wants to know what it is in addition to the quality of the content, and what it is is a neat reproduction of the public domain translation from the 1920's of two volumes of Procopius' great history. Procopius is a delightful and informative writer, and the subject matter -- Belisarius' campaigns to bring Italy back under Imperial control -- is weighty, so I look forward to reading it.
