The annals by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

115 editions published between 1884 and 1979 in 5 languages and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tacitus' 'Annals' recounts the major historical events from the years shortly before the death of Augustus to the death of Nero in AD 68. Despite his claim that the 'Annals' were written objectively, Tacitus' account is sharply critical of the emperors' excesses and fearful for the future of imperial Rome

The first work of any great historian has always commanded attention, and Tacitus was ancient Rome's very greatest historian. His biography of his father-in-law, governor of Britain in the years AD 77-84, is a literary masterpiece: it combines penetrating political history with gripping military narrative and throughout poses the question (still very much alive today) of how one should live one's life under a tyranny. This is the first commentary in English on the Agricola for almost half a century: in keeping with the aims of the series, particular attention is paid to the understanding of Tacitus' Latin, but a whole range of generic, historical, textual and narrative topics is covered, and it will be suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students as well as scholars. 'Tacitus Agricola' remains a key text for anyone with an interest in Roman Britain as well as ancient biography

A lecturer at the University of Bristol, Pitman published this edition of Tacitus' Annals in Oxford in 1912. The title of the work derives from Tacitus' style of history, which he dealt with on a year-by-year basis. Annals covered the reigns of four Roman emperors, beginning after the death of Augustus. Of the 16 original books covering a period of 54 years, much of what Tacitus wrote has not survived. This edition of Annals includes four books: the incomplete Book 5 and Book 6, which cover the final years and death of Tiberius, and Books 11 and 12 which cover the end of the reign of Claudius. (Books 7 to 10 are missing.) The text and introduction are from the 1894 edition by Henry Furneaux; Pitman's intention is 'to serve the needs of students requiring a less copious and advanced commentary' than that supplied by Furneaux

Cornelii Taciti Annalium Libri I-IV : Edited with Introduction and Notes for the Use of Schools and Junior Students by Henry Furneaux( )

3 editions published between 1885 and 2010 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A leading classical scholar from the University of Oxford, Henry Furneaux (1829-1900) specialised in the writings of the Roman historian Tacitus. Although not originally titled the Annals, this work acquired the name for the style of history it presents, dealing with events year by year, rather than thematically. The Annals cover the reigns of four Roman emperors, beginning after the death of Augustus. While considered to be factually accurate, Tacitus' accounts include moralising interpretations and judgements concerning the behaviour of the historical protagonists. The Annals originally consisted of 16 books dealing with a period of 54 years, but several of them are incomplete or have not survived at all. This volume contains the first four books of the Annals covering the years 14 to 23 C.E. It was first published in 1885 and includes an introduction and notes
