Hadrian's Wall: North-West Frontier of Rome
New York Barnes & Noble Books 1995 1566197570 / 9781566197571 1st Hardcover Very Good Fine 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
244 pp., 18 plates, illus., map, index; 22 cm. First published, 1969. Near fine. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Spine slightly rolled at the crown. First edition thus. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. "Hadrian's Wall is the most important surviving memorial to the military might of Rome--much admired and emulated as a model of frontier management. Yet the author's provocative study vigorously attacks tradition, calling the wall a military triumph but a political disaster. The failure of the Romans to pacify the Caledones produced a military situation that compelled the establishment of a strongly defended frontier, the maintenance of which upset the economic balance of the province. This book is an impressive study of a province militarily uncertain, economically unviable, and politically unstable. It is also a clear, thoughtful, and eminently readable history of the Roman occupation of Britain through four centuries of existence." - Publisher.

Castles of Scotland: Past and Present
New York Barnes & Noble Books 2005 0760773785 / 9780760773789 First edition thus Hard Cover Very Good Fine 4to - over 9" - 12" tall 
Pictorial boards, 127 pp., col. illus., col. map, index; 27 cm. Translation by Neil Frazer Davenport. Near fine. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Age toning. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. Profusely illustrated. "Fields of brilliant green dotted with grazing sheep, mountains cloaked in purple heather, silent lochs unmoving beneath the changing tones of the sky. In the midst of these still largely wild landscapes, the Scottish castles recount the story of a land tormented by centuries of still smouldering struggle. From the first defensive towers in bare stone to the stately homes of the 19th century, crammed with paintings and precious furniture, the path was long and perilous. The most daring of men fought to defend or conquer them; artists and architects were commissioned to embellish them. Their fortunes were ensured by the most powerful families. Leafing through the pages of this book, lingering over the magnificent images and reading the rich and exhaustive texts is to follow and evocative itinerary through these ancient buildings, climbing narrow spiral staircases, crossing imposing halls, admiring splendid libraries a journey of discovery of the nobility and misery, the splendors and drama of Scottish history." - Publisher.
