First edition of this classic work of historical fiction. Octavo, original cloth.

By stepping back into the Rome of Julius Caesar, Thornton Wilder brings to surging life a dramatic period and one of the most magnificent personalities of all time. Through imaginary letters and documents, which are cunningly revealing, all of Rome comes to life in this, Wilder's penetrative historical recreation.
