First published in 1879, Sir Edward Bunbury's A History of Ancient Geography remains the seminal work in English on its subject. In two substantial volumes of outstanding scholarship the author surveys the development of geography in ancient times from its beginnings to the fall of the Roman Empire. It contains a wealth of information drawn not just from the geographical handbooks of Strabo, Pomponius Mela, Pliny the Elder and Ptolemy but from every corner of Greek and Latin literature including contemporary travelers' accounts. Integrating topographical analyses with geography, the History remains unchallenged as a meticulously researched and thoroughly balanced treatment of its subject. This edition contains a new introduction by Duane Roller, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Classics, Ohio State University, USA.
