Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1953.
Hardcover. Near fine in a very good dust jacket. "From the corrected sheets of the first edition." Three volumes in original green cloth, illustrated with b/w plates, indexed. Minor rubbing to extremities, offsetting from the dust jacket flaps to the endpapers; else a fine set. Dust jackets have some chipping to the lower edges and spine ends, and there is some spotting to the front panel of Volume II and spine of Volume I. Overall still a very attractive set of this comprehensive and influential work. Rostovtzeff defines the "Hellenistic World" as that "created by Alexander's conquest of the East, which existed as long as the States into which it disintegrated retained their political independence, and the Greeks in those states held the leading role in all spheres of life; that is to say, approximately from the time of Alexander to Augustus." Additional shipping charges will be requested for priority or international orders.
