Herodotus’s ‘Histories’ is one of the most important and well-known works of history in the western world. It records the cultures and societies of Greece, Northern Africa, and western Asian customs from the earliest times to the 5th-century B.C.

 

This 1584 edition was published in Frankfurt by Andrea Wechel, a well-known publisher of works of Greek antiquity. However, a draw of this edition is that it was edited by Henri Estienne. Henri Stephanus, or Estienne, was a prolific 16th-century printer who began publishing works of Classical authors such as Aristotle, Xenophon, Thyucidides, Sophocles, and Herodotus.
