IT IS ONE OF THE MOST HIGHLY PRIZED EDITIONS OF THIS GREAT WORK. ORIGINAL COLLECTOR'S NOTES SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN THIS SEALED EDITION.His passion was for glory only, and in that he was insatiable. Although written over four hundred years after Alexander's death, Arrian's. Also known as Anabasis , is the most reliable account of the man and his achievements we have. Arrian's own experience as a military commander gave him unique insights into the life of the world's greatest conqueror. He tells of Alexander's violent suppression of the Theban rebellion, his total defeat of Persia, and his campaigns through Egypt, India and Babylon - establishing new cities and destroying others in his path. While Alexander emerges from this record as an unparalleled and charismatic leader, Arrian succeeds brilliantly in creating an objective and fully rounded portrait of a man of boundless ambition, who was exposed to the temptations of power and worshipped as a god in his own lifetime.
