    More Information:

    Titus Livius (59 B.C.-A.D.17), the great historian of Republican Rome, wrote his history (Ab Urbe Condita libri) during the principate of Augustus.  The history itself was written in 42 books, of which only books i-x and xxi-xlv, thirty-five in all, survive to the present day.  Livy attributed the fall of the Republic to the decline in the traditional Roman morals, and thus welcomed the moral reforms of Augustus.

    This edition was produced for the use in the Jesuit school at Dillingen University.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
