Description

Before we note below some of the accolades given to this edition of Gibbon's history from the late 1890s we note that a new edition, the 1995 Modern Library Edition in 3 volumes (at $29.99/volume)  is a flawed edition. It claims to be a reproduction of the Bury edition but it does not include the 223 pages of Bury's Appendicies.

"The time has certainly arrived for a new edition of Gibbon's  great work. … Professor Bury is the right man to undertake this task.  His learning is amazing, both in extent and accuracy. The book is issued in a handy form, and at a moderate price, and it is admirably printed." Times.

"The edition is edited  as a classic should be edited, nothing removed yet indicating the value of the text, and bringing it up to date. It promises to be of the utmost value, and will be a welcome edition to many libraries." Scotsman.

"This edition, so far as one may judge from the first installment, is a marvel of erudition and critical skill, and it is the very minimum of praise  to predict that the seven volumes of it will supersede Dean Milman's as the standard edition of our great historical classic." Glasgow Herald.

"The beau-ideal Gibbon has arrived." Sketch.

"At last there is an adequate modern edition of Gibbon. … The best edition the nineteenth century could produce." Machester Guardian.
