Product Description

About the Author

EDWARD GIBBON was born in 1737. His brief career as an undergraduate at Magdalen College, Oxford, ended when he joined the Catholic Church, but he later re-joined the Protestant Church. After the death of his father, Gibbon settled in London and in 1774 was elected to Parliament where he sat for the next eight years. The first volume of his famous HISTORY was published in 1776; it was highly praised for its learning and style but incurred some censure for its treatment of the early Christians. The second and third volumes appeared in 1781 and the final three were published in 1788. HUGH TREVOR-ROPER was born in Northumberland in 1914 and educated at Charterhouse and Christ Church, Oxford. He was Regius Professor of Modern History and Fellow of Oriel College, Oxford 1957-80; Master of Peterhouse, Cambridge 1980-87. He became Lord Dacre of Glanton in 1979. Hugh Trevor-Roper died in 2003. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Good but the editing is harsh - so much left out. Still one could not make the book one volume without harsh editing.

Even if it is an abridgement, the rivers of gold Gibbon weaves outshines the modern scrtippler of prose.
