About the Authors
  • An eight-volume work on the history of Greece, first published between 1835 and 1844 by the scholar (and later Bishop of St David's), Connop Thirlwall. The work was commissioned for Lardner's 'Cabinet Cyclopaedia' series, and the volumes were aimed at two audiences: those people who wanted more than a superficial knowledge of the subject, but did not have the time or means to study the original sources, and those who had access to the ancient authors, but required a guide or interpreter.
