Considered not only a classic work of literature, but also esteemed for its preciseness and accuracy, The Annals of the World has not been accessible in book form for over 300 years. It has been translated into modern English for the first time from Latin text originally published in the 1650’s.
In a chronological presentation covering history from Creation through 70 A.D., James Ussher relates both well- and little-known accounts from the lives of the famous and infamous, including pharaohs, Caesars, kings, conquerors, thieves, pirates, and murderers. He tells of the rise and fall of great and not-so-great nations and gives accounts of the events that shaped the world.
James Ussher’s literary classic The Annals of the World is a virtual historical encyclopedia that is a must-have for all libraries!
