The Grandeur That Was Rome
by J. C. Stobart
Publisher: Sidgwick & Jackson Ltd. 1912
Number of pages: 378
Although a large part of this book is written directly from the original sources, and none of it without frequent reference to them, it is, in the main, frankly a derivative history intended for readers who are not specialists. It attempts to give a view of the whole course of ancient Roman History within the limits of a single volume.

This sketch of the History of Rome is primarily intended to meet the needs of introductory college courses in Roman History. However, it is hoped that it may also prove of service as a handbook for students of Roman life and literature in general.
by John Lord - C. Scribner and company
Early Roman history is chiefly the detail of successful wars, aggressive and uncompromising, in which we see a fierce and selfish patriotism, an indomitable will, a hard unpitying temper, great practical sagacity, patience, and perseverance.
