A history of Rome: selections by Livy( Book )

1,537 editions published between 1380 and 2021 in 16 languages and held by 7,066 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Livy (Titus Livius), the great Roman historian, was born at Patavium (Padua) in 64 or 59 BC, where after years in Rome he died in AD 12 or 17. Livy's history, composed as the imperial autocracy of Augustus was replacing the republican system that had stood for over 500 years, presents in splendid style a vivid narrative of Rome's rise from the traditional foundation of the city in 753 or 751 BC to 9 BC and illustrates the collective and individual virtues necessary to achieve and maintain such greatness. Of its 142 books, conventionally divided into pentads and decads, we have 1-10 and 21-45 complete, and short summaries (periochae) of all the rest except 41 and 43-45; 11-20 are lost, and of the rest only fragments and the summaries remain. The fourth decad comprises two recognizable pentads: Books 31-35 narrate the Second Macedonian War (200-196) and its aftermath, then Books 36-40 the years from 191 to 180, when Rome crushed and shrank Antiochus' empire to extend and consolidate her mastery over the Hellenistic states. This edition replaces the original Loeb edition by Evan T. Sage."--Publisher's description

Hannibal's war by Titus Livius( )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 1,410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Livy's history of Rome contains, in Books 21 to 30, the definitive ancient account of Hannibal's invasion of Italy in 218 BC, and the war he fought with the Romans over the following sixteen years. Livy describes the bloody siege of the Spanish city of Saguntum, Rome's ally, which sparked the war, and the Carthaginian leader's famous march with elephants over the Alps into Italy. Livy conveys the drama of the great battles, the disastrous encounters at Trasimene and Cannae, and the final confrontation between Hannibal and the youthful Scipio Africanus. Individuals as well as events are brought to life, as the long course of the Second Punic War unfolds."--Jacket
Titi Livi ab urbe condita libri by Tite-Live( Book )

470 editions published between 1851 and 2000 in 6 languages and held by 1,189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide


16 editions published between 1744 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Titus Livius, often known as Livy in English, was a Roman historian who wrote a monumental history of Rome, Ab Urbe Condita, from its founding (traditionally dated to 753 BC) through the reign of Augustus in Livy's own time. Livy's writing style was poetic and archaic in contrast to Julius Caesar's and Cicero's styles. Also, he often wrote from the Romans' opponent's point of view in order to accent the Romans' virtues in their conquest of Italy and the Mediterranean. In keeping with his poetic tendencies, he did little to distinguish between fact and fiction. Although he frequently plagiarized previous authors, he hoped that moral lessons from the past would serve to advance the Roman society of his day
The war with Hannibal : books XXI-XXX of The history of Rome from its foundation by Livy( Book )

40 editions published between 1965 and 2009 in English and French and held by 1,075 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The War with Hannibal, Livy chronicles the events of the Second Punic War between Rome and Carthage, until the Battle of Zama in 202 BC. He vividly recreates the immense armies of Hannibal, complete with elephants, crossing the Alps; the panic as they approached the gates of Rome; and the decimation of the Roman army at the Battle of Lake Trasimene. Yet it is also the clash of personalities that fascinates Livy, from great debates in the Senate to the historic meeting between Scipio and Hannibal before the decisive battle. Livy never hesitates to introduce both intense drama and moral lessons into his work, and here he brings a turbulent episode in history powerfully to life

Rome and Italy : books VI-X of The History of Rome from its foundation by Titus Livius( Book )

4 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Books VI-X of Livy's monumental work trace Rome's fortunes from its near collapse after defeat by the Gauls in 386 BC to its emergence, in a matter of decades, as the premier power in Italy, having conquered the city-state of Samnium in 293 BC. In this fascinating history, events are described not simply in terms of partisan politics, but through colourful portraits that bring the strengths, weaknesses and motives of leading figures such as the noble statesman Camillus and the corrupt Manlius vividly to life. While Rome's greatest chronicler intended his history to be a memorial to former glory, he also had more didactic aims?hoping that readers of his account could learn from the past ills and virtues of the city."--From back cover

"Beginning with the mythical origins of the city, the first five books of Livy's magisterial History of Rome recount the battles, betrayals, and triumphs of the men and women who turned a small town into a formidable republic. This literary masterpiece remains essential reading for anyone interested in ancient history or the birth - and death - of great nations."--Jacket
The rise of Rome : books one to five by Livy( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Romulus and Remus, the rape of Lucretia, Horatius at the bridge, the saga of Coriolanus, Cincinnatus called from his farm to save the state - these and many more stories immortalized by Livy in his history of Rome have become part of our cultural heritage." "The historian's huge work consisted of 142 books which trace Rome's history from its foundation in 753 BC to events in Livy's own lifetime (9 BC). Only 35 books survive in their entirety. These first five books cover the period from Rome's beginnings and her first great foreign conquest, the capture of the Etruscan city of Veii, to her first major defeat, the sack of the city by the Gauls in 390 BC. This new translation is based on R.M. Ogilvie's Oxford Classical Text, the best to date."--Jacket
