Near Fine. No Jacket. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. 476pp/maps. This classic book tells the dramatic story of the last centuries of the Greek Empire. Beginning with the occupation of Constantinople by Western Crusaders in 1204, the account traces the ebb and flow of Byzantium in its final stages, with disastrous civil wars, dynastic struggles, and the advance of a seemingly unstoppable enemy. The last days of the siege are poignantly recounted, including the death of the last Byzantine emperor, who fought shoulder to shoulder with his people to the very last. Clean.
