    An undisputed masterpiece of historical writing, Gibbon's monumental six-volume work, published between 1776 and 1787, covers the Roman Empire from the late second century CE to the fall of Constantinople in 1453. This abridged edition - 'still Gibbon, but Gibbon for the 21st-century reader' - focuses on key characters and events while omitting much of Gibbon's extensive background detail. The editor, George Davidson, has added explanatory notes and the book is illustrated with 18th-century engravings of Rome by Piranesi.
