Boris Johnson. The Dream of Rome. London: Harper Collins Publishers, 2006. First edition, signed by Johnson, original dust jacket.

This first edition copy of The Dream of Rome is written and autographed by Boris Johnson. Johnson signed the title page in black ink. This book, published in 2006 by Harper Collins Publishers, retains its original dust jacket. 

An enthusiastic Rome scholar, Boris Johnson analyzes the Roman Empire’s political and cultural unity that spanned much of Europe, the Middle East, and into Africa. First produced as a documentary, The Dream of Rome was released soon after the BBC aired the documentary. The book considers the tools the Romans used to maintain the empire even after natural disaster, wars, and famine. The British journalist, scholar, and politician attempts to apply lessons from the Roman Empire to modern political goals, achievements, and failures, especially in the European Union. In his book, Johnson identifies the political tactics of one of the largest and longest-lasting governments in history. 


Overall very good condition. The book, published in 2006, is internally clean and bright. Boris Johnson signed the title page in black pen. The signature is clear and dark with no damage. The original dust jacket has an “autographed copy” sticker adhered to the front, but it does not block any text. Otherwise, the book has no notable damage. 

Dimensions: 9 ½” H x 6 ⅜” W x 1" D
