The Illustrated Encyclopedia Of The Roman Empire
This is a boxed set of two encyclopedias: a chronicle of political and military history and a guide to art, architecture and everyday life, in more than 920 photographs. These are two highly accessible books chronicling the rise and fall of ancient Rome, how the people lived, and the classical places and buildings of the Roman world. It is an illustrated military and political history of the world's greatest empire: its leaders and generals, wars and campaigns.
An authoritative account of Roman imperial, military and political power, and of classical Rome's far-reaching influence on Western culture, architecture and art. Nearly 1000 colour photographs, fine art paintings, artworks, family trees, maps, battle plans, architectural drawings and cross-sections reveal the glory and the might of ancient Rome.
