Overview

Delphi Complete Works of Edward Gibbon (Illustrated) by Edward Gibbon

Edward Gibbon’s monumental ‘History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire’ charts the course of Western civilisation from the height of the Roman Empire to the fall of Byzantium. Published in six volumes between 1776 and 1788, Gibbon’s magnum opus is celebrated for its ironic prose, use of primary sources and its bold open criticism of organised religion. For the first time in digital publishing, this comprehensive eBook presents Gibbon’s complete works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts appearing in digital print for the first time, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
