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.
