14 editions published between 1869 and 1906 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
Annals, Histories, Agricola, Germania by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The complete historical works of the greatest chronicler of the Roman Empire in a wholly revised and updated translation. A brilliant narrator and a master stylist, Tacitus served as administrator and senator, a career that gave him an intimate view of the empire at its highest levels, and of the dramatic, violent, and often bloody events of the first century. In the Annals, he writes about Augustus Caesar's death and observes the inner workings of the courts of the emperors Tiberius and Nero. In the Histories, he describes an empire in tumult, four emperors reigning in one year, each overthrown by the next. The Agricola, a biography of Tacitus's father-in-law, Julius Agricola, the most celebrated governor of Roman Britain is the first detailed account of the island that would eventually rule over a quarter of the earth. And in the Germania, the famed warrior-barbarians of ancient Germany come richly to life
History of Rome by Livy( Book )

6 editions published between 1898 and 1904 in English and held by 118 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. This edition replaces the original Loeb edition by Evan T. Sage [and] offers a text based on Briscoe's edition, a fresh translation, and ample annotation fully current with modern scholarship."--
The Agricola of Tacitus by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

22 editions published between 1869 and 1964 in Latin and English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The life and deeds of Gnaeus Iulius Agricola - governor of the Roman province of Britannia under the Flavian emperors - are best retold by his son-in-law, Tacitus. Tacitus describes not only the successful Roman campaigns in Britannia, but also the characteristics of the country. Thus, his Agricola is one of most elemental sources for the study of the history and inner structure of this northernmost Roman province
