New / Another Edition

What about a paperback reprint of Bosworth’s “A Historical Commentary on Arrian’s History of Alexander”?

Good day everyone, thanks to be here on Alessandro III di Macedonia! I’m writing today because there are two books that I would very much like to read but which have a price that is prohibitive to say the least:

A Historical Commentary on Arrian’s History of Alexander

Volume 1: Books I-III

Volume II: Books IV-V

by Albert Brian Bosworth

Published by: Clarendon Press, Oxford University Press

Volume I: Books I-III Volume II: Books IV-V

This is the long-awaited second volume of a magisterial commentary on the work of the historian Arrian. It deals in depth with a crucial period (329-326 BC) of the reign of Alexander the Great, discussing some of the earliest datable evidence for the history of Central Asia and Pakistan, and analyzing Alexander’s views of sovereignty and divinity.

Yes, I know that Clarendon Press is a very prestigious publisher and it’s books are for specialist readers and not for the general public, but I’d very much like to read these two valuable volumes. Why not reprint them in paperback format at a lower price and therefore more affordable. I’m sure some of you would like to read them too but can’t afford them and I also know that it will be difficult for an economic edition of these books to come out, but I still wanted to tell you about it because many of you would like, like me, to have these two books in their Alexander-graphy!

Have a great day,
