The Byzantine Achievement

An Historical Perspective, A.D. 330-1453

BYRON, Robert

BYRON, Robert The Byzantine Achievement An Historical Perspective, A.D. 330-1453

George Routledge & Sons Ltd., 1929.

First edition. 8vo. Publisher's blue cloth with gilt lettering and decorations. Author's presentation copy, inscribed by Byron underneath Mary Benedetta Sharpe's ownership inscription, "to whom Robert Byron acknowledges much assistance in intuiting the public's distaste for his subject." Black and white frontispiece, with fifteen further plates. A very good copy, spine a little dulled with some wear to the spine ends.

An uncommon presentation copy of Byron's third book. Despite the pessimism of Byron's inscription, inspired no doubt by the initial lacklustre sales, The Byzantine Achievement is now credited with reigniting Western interest in Byzantine studies.
