Title: Claudius the God and His Wife Messalina
Description: London, United Kingdom, Arther Barker. 1934, 2nd Impression. Cloth, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Historical fiction. Graves was awarded the 1934 James Tait Black Memorial Prize for both I, Claudius and Claudius the God. Following on from "I Claudius" tells the tale of Claudius' 13-year reign as Emperor of Rome. Naturally, it ends when Claudius is murdered. While Claudius spends most of his time before becoming emperor tending to his books and his writings and trying to stay out of the general line of corruption and killings, his life on the throne puts him into the center of the political maelstrom. Captures the vitality, splendor, and decadence of the Roman world at the point of its decline. CONDITION Black with bright Gilt title (cloth unworn, wax coating slightly lifted to edge possible due to tightly packed shelve) pp 575 with 2 fold out lineage charts. Internally bright and crisp as new with gift inscription. Overweight. Very Good/No Jacket.
