The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire by Edward Gibbon
Edited, with Introduction and Notes by Oliphant Smeaton, M.A. The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire was written by English historian Edward Gibbon and published in six volumes. Volume I was published in 1776, and went through six printings. Volumes II and III were published in 1781; volumes IV, V, VI in 1788-89. The original volumes were published in quarto sections, a common publishing practice of the time.
