Herodian’s ‘History of Rome’ is a collection of eight books covering the period of the death of Marcus Aurelius to the beginning of Gordian III’s reign. Herodian’s account is first-person narrative of one of the most politically unsettled times of the Roman Empire. It was first published in 1502 and was edited by Henri Estienne using the Latin of Poliziano. Important names covered in Herodian’s ‘History’ include Commodus, Julianus, Severus, and Pertinax, as well as the history of Zosimus.

 

This 1538 first Keyser (or Caesar) edition is quite rare. In fact, 16th-century editions of Herodian are markedly rare, especially those with Poliziano’s Latin. According to the USTC, there are no examples in any institutional holding in the entire Western Hemisphere or any recent auction records! Exceedingly rare!
