The Histories of Greek-born, Roman historian Polybius (c.200-118 BCE) are reissued here in two volumes. Undertaken by the classicist Evelyn Shuckburgh (1843-1906), this first complete English translation (utilising F. Hultsch's 1867-72 Greek text) was published in 1889. A tutor, and later librarian, at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, Shuckburgh produced school editions of Sophocles and Suetonius as well as short histories on the classical world. This highly readable translation has remained a fascinating historical account of the second and third centuries BCE. Volume 1 comprises the complete Books 1 to 5, the near complete Book 6, and fragments of Books 7 to 9. Volume 2 comprises fragments of Books 10 to 39 (17, 19, and 37 are missing), a compendium of smaller fragments, and an extensive index.
