Victor W. von Hagen. Published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson / Readers Union, 1967. HB. 288 pages including 64 colour and 150 b and w plates.
The jacket blurb says 'This book is the fruit of the Roman Road Expedition. Victor von Hagen led his team for 5 years through 34 countries & followed the course of more than 30,000 miles of Roman roads. The expedition conducted the first systematic study of the road system since the 3rd century of our era, when Antoninus Augustus prepared a military itinerary for the Emperor Caracalla. This monumental exploration took them over snow-covered Alps, through deserts, bogs, moorlands, the arid Atlas mountains and the vast sand seas of Africa. His investigation of the roads that led to Rome provides, as well, a view of 800 years of Roman history.'
The book seems to cover roads in Africa, Egypt, the Balkans, Gaul and Germany, Britain and Spain.
Top dusty, otherwise a good, clean copy.
