1885 First Edition  2 Volumes Histories of Herodotus 1885 First Edition  2 Volumes Histories of Herodotus


Very rare two volumes of Histories of Herodotus books (complete set).
They are illustrated (61 illustrations) and published by Putnam in 1885.
Some wear to the covers and some pages, but for its age is good.



Herodotus
of Halicarnassus was a Greek historian from Ionia
who lived in the 5th century BCE (ca. 484 BCE–ca. 425 BCE) and is regarded as
the 'Father of History'. He is almost exclusively known for writing
The Histories, a record of his 'inquiries'  into the origins of the
Greco-Persian Wars which occurred in 490 and 480-479 BCE — especially since he
includes a narrative account of that period, which would otherwise be poorly
documented, and many long digressions concerning the various places and peoples
he encountered during wide-ranging travels around the lands of the
Mediterranean and Black Sea. However, some of his stories are not always
completely accurate. Herodotus however does state he is only reporting what is
told to him, an honesty lacking in many historians.
