1 Syme, Ronald; Anthony Birley (Ed. ) ANATOLICA Studies in Strabo
Oxford University Press 1995 0198149433 / 9780198149439 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 
DJ spine is sunned and discolored now in brodart. Light bump to top corner of book with small scratches to front board. ; No historian of ancient Rome in this century has had a greater influence on historical research or won greater international acclaim than Sir Ronald Syme (1903-89). His outstanding position was due mainly to his first two books, The Roman Revolution, which appeared in 1939, and Tacitus (two volumes, 1958) - although he went on to produce many more monographs, and seven volumes of his Roman Papers have so far appeared. The long gap between his first two books is partly explained by the war, which took him on official duties to Belgrade and Ankara, and he spent the years 1943-5 at Istanbul as Professor of Classical Philology. It was known that in spite of the war, Syme had continued to write in these years, in particular 'Strabonia', investigations into the famous ancient Geography composed by Strabo, a native of Asia Minor in the time of Augustus. After Syme's death, the manuscript was discovered among his papers: he had not quite completed the work, but what he had written, with almost complete annotation, represents a substantial and fascinating study of the historical geography of Anatolia in the Hellenistic and early Roman period. Syme ruthlessly dissects the often incoherent and inconsistent text of Strabo, at the same time providing rich detail on client kings, Roman generals and emperors, writers and travellers. Above all, he shows unequalled ability to understand the landscape and settlement of Anatolia. ; 424 pages

4 Birley, Anthony HADRIAN The Restless Emperor
Routledge 1997 041516544X / 9780415165440 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 
Dustjacket is protected in mylar. ; Roman Imperial Biographies; 1.23 x 9.54 x 6.45 Inches; 399 pages; In Hadrian, Anthony R. Birley brilliantly uses new evidence to chronicle the fascinating life of a man who, while broken and hated at his death, nevertheless left an indelible stamp on the Roman Empire. Birley shows how Hadrian brazenly abandoned his predecessor Trajan's eastern conquests, constructed new demarcation lines in Germany, North Africa, and most famously Hadrian's Wall in Britain, to limit the expansion of the Empire. Hadrian portrayed himself as a second Augustus, and, unlike most Roman emperors, acted rather than reacted. He promoted the "Greek Renaissance" extravagantly, but his attempt to Hellenize the Jews had disastrous consequences. Birley also explores Hadrian's dramatic personal life, including his tragic love affair with the young Antinous, whose death in the Nile caused speculation of suicide and even sacrifice.

7 Birley, Anthony Richard SEPTIMIUS SEVERUS The African Emperor. Revised Edition
Yale University Press 1989 0300044674 / 9780300044676 Hardcover Fine in Very Good dust jacket 
Book is fine. DJ spine sunned and lettering faded. ; In this, the only biography of Septimius Severus in English, Anthony R. Birley explors how 'Roman' or otherwise this man was and examines his remarkable background and career. Severus was descended from Phoenician settlers in Tripolitania, and his reign, AD 193-211, represents a key point in Roman history. Birley explores what was African and what was Roman in Septimius' background, given that he came from an African city. He asks whether Septimius was a 'typical cosmopolitan bureaucrat', a 'new Hannibal on the throne of Caesar' or 'principle author of the decline of the Roman Empire'? ; 291 pages
