xvi + 285 pp + 5 maps, cloth, 8vo spine slightly faded & scuffed Rice-Holmes was a master of both academic detail and lively narrative and despite being written over 80 years ago, his work gives the reader a sound grasp of the critical period from the murder of Caesar in 44BC to the battle of Actium in 28BC, which led to the rise of Octavian as Augustus Caesar. This volume is NOT to be confused with 'The architect of the Roman Empire, 27BC - AD14', which was published in 1931. By this time Rice-Holmes was so crippled as to be unable to get out and research books in the British Museum library for himself and had to rely on others to assist him.
