"Publius (or Gaius) Cornelius Tacitus (English pronunciation: /tæsts/; c. AD 56 ? 117) was a senator and a historian of the Roman Empire. The surviving portions of his two major works?the Annals and the Histories?examine the reigns of the Roman Emperors Tiberius, Claudius, Nero, and those who reigned in the Year of the Four Emperors (AD 69). These two works span the history of the Roman Empire from the death of Augustus in AD 14 to the years of the First Jewish?Roman War in AD 70. There are substantial lacunae in the surviving texts, including a gap in the Annals that is four books long."--Wikipedia

The Annals and the Histories by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

12 editions published between 1954 and 1966 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cornelius Tacitus brilliantly chronicles the moral decline and rampant civil unrest in the Roman Empire in a period when the earliest foundations of modern Europe were being laid. The Annals commence in a.d. 14, at the death of Augustus, recounting the reigns of Tiberius, Gaius (Caligula), Claudius, and Nero, and conclude in a.d. 68, the year of Nero's suicide. The Histories document the tumultuous year a.d. 69, when Emperors Galba, Otho, and Vitellius all perished in quick succession, ushering in Vespasian's ten-year reign. According to historian Will Durant, "[We must] rank Tacitus among the greatest. ... The portraits he draws stand out more clearly, stride the stage more livingly than any others in historical literature." This Modern Library Paperback Classic includes newly commissioned endnotes.
