1. I, Claudius. Robert Graves. Cover artist: John Aldridge. Arthur Barker, 1934. First edition. Original dust jacket.

    Written in the form of an autobiography of the Roman Emperor Claudius, it includes history of the Julio-Claudian Dynasty and Roman Empire, from Julius Caesar’s assassination in 44 BC to Caligula’s assassination in 41 AD.

    Claudius’ informal narration serves to emphasize the banality of the imperial family’s endless greed and lust.
