Complete Works Of Flavius Josephus Th
An exquisite reproduction of a circa-1850 large, single-volume collection of Flavius Josephus' complete literary works. A priest, scholar, and warrior, this Jewish historian was born just a few years after the death of Jesus Christ. Best known for his works The Antiquities of the Jews and The Jewish Wars, Josephus is an oft-cited source for students of biblical chronology and history. This classic translation by William Whiston is a treasure of information and beautifully detailed artwork from the historic Tallis publishing family, best known for their illustrated maps of the world with detailed vignettes. Their work is highly prized and collected, and the caliber of this quality is shown in each of the over 60 full-page steel engravings featuring the work of the most skilled artisans of the time. Each illustration is framed with an ornate and highly detailed border, each unique and a testament to the diligence and quality of craftsmanship that became a signature of the Tallis company.
