Early Rome, from the Foundation of the City to its Destruction by the Gauls by Wilhelm Ihne (1821 - 1902).


In this short scholarly work the German historian, Wilhelm Ihne, elucidates what is known or can be deduced about Rome's early history, from the time of its legendary founders and kings, through the establishment of the Republic, to the invasion of the Gauls in 390 B.C. Ihne writes that "No great state known to history can be traced to such a small beginning as Rome." This book shows how the slow evolution of Rome's political institutions, through class conflict and compromise, created a state which, despite few natural advantages, was destined to rule the world. (Pamela Nagami, M.D.)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Craigdav1 has kindly agreed to DPL this project.

Of note, Wilhelm Ihne translated his own works into English.

My best,

Colleen,

That is so nice of you to tell me you listening to my Georges!

Positive feedback is so great!

And thanks for thinking about DPLing this one.

Hi DaveC,

I have replaced the link to the text with a new one, due to a missing page in the first link.

Thank you,
