First illustrated edition in English. [iv], 693 pp; plates 1-30; 661 pp; plates 31-52. Original brown cloth, ornately gilt spines. Slight tears in heads of spines (a bit moreso in Vol. II), else a very clean, bright set. 'For many years, the works of Josephus were printed only in an imperfect Latin translation from the original Greek. It was only in 1544 that a version of the standard Greek text was made available, edited by the Dutch humanist Arnoldus Arlenius. The first English translation, by Thomas Lodge, appeared in 1602, with subsequent editions appearing throughout the 17th century. The 1544 Greek edition formed the basis of the 1732 English translation by William Whiston, which achieved enormous popularity in the English-speaking world . . . It was often the book after the Bible that was most frequently owned by Christians. A cross reference apparatus for Whiston's version of Josephus and the biblical canon also exists' (Wikipedia). According to the Bohn catalogue the plates are by 'various artists' but I cannot identify any of them. Bohn published an unillustrated, one-volume edition in 1843; the edition offered here was reprinted in 1847. In 1854-55, Bohn brought out an unillustrated four-volume edition in its Ecclesiastical Library, translated by C.D. Yonge. N° de ref. de la librería 21212
