Lancel, Serge - Carthage A History - ( Item 124303 )

Published in London by Folio Society. 2012. First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Near Fine slipcase. Slight bump to the edge of one panel. Introduced by Richard Miles. Translated by Antonia Nevill. Bound in buckram, blocked with a design by Neil Gower. Set in Dante. 432 pages. Frontispiece and 32 pages of colour and black & white plates. Book size: 10" 6". A war that nearly destroyed the superpowers of the ancient world; commanders who performed heroic deeds and ordered terrible slaughter; a beautiful city burned to the ground, a plough driven over the ruins, and the land sown with salt The story of the destruction of Carthage that has come down to the modern day is compelling, but it is only the coda to a glorious civilisation. Richard Miles, historian and author, has written an introduction to this edition in which he praises Lancel's 'elegant and understated prose [which] conveys a real sense of excitement and discovery'. The text is beautifully complemented by a total of 48 pieces of newly drawn artwork and cartography as well as numerous photographs of stelae, masks, pottery and excavations that offer us a visual glimpse of this vibrant civilisation.
