The Roman History, from the Foundation of the City of Rome, to the Destruction of the Western Empire.
London: Printed for S. Baker and G. Leigh, T. Davies and L. Davis, 1769. 2 vols, 8vo, contemporary sprinkled calf, red morocco labels, gilt rules and lettering. Edges a little rubbed; some minor worming in the margins of a few signatures of volume 1; prelims lightly foxed; very good copy. ΒΆ One of several popular histories by Goldsmith, which went through numerous editions for almost 40 years and earned the praise of his friend Samuel Johnson who said “The charm and simplicity of the style at once caught the public, and though the writer disclaimed research, and professed only to have aimed at a school book, he obtained all the favour attaching to work that conveys instruction without making unreasonable demands on the reader’s attention.”
