Description

Pliny sketches a theory of advancing moral decline and extravagance, in the course of which he gives a detailed account of six centuries of classical art and a fascinating sketch of the world of the rich Roman collector. Isager's is the first full treatment of this subject for over a hundred years.

Reviews

`An interesting and very useful commentary on Pliny's treatment of the subject in his vast work - Natural History'
