Description :

Octavo, pp. [1-6] 7-523 [524: blank] [525-528: ads], four plates with illustrations by J. Ambrose Walton, original blue cloth, spine panel stamped in gold, color pictorial paper onlay on front and rear panels. Later edition. Issued as number 59 of Ward, Lock's two shilling "Copyright Novels." First published by Longmans in London in 1863. A long historical novel set mostly in Rome during the first-century reign of the Emperor Titus, spiced here and there with the supernaturalism of pagan religions. The third section moves to the Middle East and describes the Roman conquest of Jerusalem in 70 A. D. "His other perennially popular novel [besides HOLMBY HOUSE] has been THE GLADIATORS . the story of a pugnacious young Briton enslaved by the Romans." - Sutherland, The Longman Companion to Victorian Fiction, p. 672. "The popularity of the novel testifies to the long-standing preoccupation of the English with comparisons of their own empire to that of the Romans (whether to self-congratulatory or self-critical purpose). It also reflects the greater familiarity of earlier audiences with both Classical and Biblical history." - Robert Eldridge. Topp II, p. 385. Corners and edges worn (as is almost inevitable with a paper binding of this age), offsetting to free endpapers, rear cover dusty, a very good copy with a bright clean front cover, which shows a gladiatorial scene.
