Reader's note

Add a dash of sophistication to the bookshelf with this vintage brown Penguin English translation of the 440 BC history book written by Greek historian Herodotus--the perfect gift for all lovers of classic literature and out of print Penguin books available on our vintage bookstore!

'The King replied, 'It was caused by your good fate and my bad fate. It was the fault of the Greek gods, who with their arrogance, encouraged me to march onto your lands. Nobody is mad enough to choose war whilst there is peace. During times of peace, the sons bury their fathers, but in war it is the fathers who send their sons to the grave.'
