Annals of the World: James Ussher's Classic Survey of World History

Full Product Description

James Ussher's Annals of the World was first published in Latin in 1654. It was translated into English in 1658, and this current publication updates the work into modern English. This comprehensive history of the world through A.D. 70 offers a look at history rarely seen: read about the kidnapping of Julius Caesar, or the many exploits of Alexander the Great. Read about biblical events and how they fit into the secular frame of history. Ussher traveled throughout Europe collecting information for his work, and many of those original documents have been destroyed in the years since, leaving Ussher as the primary source. This edition has many reference keys, making it an extremely useful book for libraries and individuals as well. Each paragraph is numbered; each section is precisely dated with Gregorian, Julian, and years-from-the-beginning-of-the-world dates; over 10,000 footnotes from the original text have been updated to references from works in the Loeb Cla! ssical Library by Harvard Press; contains over 2,500 citations from the Bible and the Apocrypha; fully indexed; includes 8 appendixes; comes with a CD-ROM of helpful graphs and charts. The book is Smyth sewn with gilded edges, foil embossing on the front, back, and spine to give this volume a classic literary look. This book should be in the library of every scholar and every church and public library. It is a mammoth masterpiece of classic literature.
