The Colosseum - QUENNELL Peter

Readers Diges, 1971, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Fine

Illustrated colour and monochrome plates. Mock-epic sea battles, grimly realistic wild animal hunts, firework displays and at least one midnight seance have been held in the Colosseum since its inauguration in A.D. 80. More than 1,500 years have passed since the last blood-human or animal-was shed on the arena stands.
