This volume is devoted to the history, monuments and topography of Byzantine Constantinople, and includes two specially written pieces, as well as up-dates to the studies reprinted. Many of the articles deal with the imperial constructions of the first centuries of the City's existence - for instance, the columns of Constantine and Justinian, the Mausoleum of the Holy Apostles and the churches of St Sophia, St John of Studius, and Sts Sergius and Bacchus - structures which provided the basic monumental framework around which Constantinople developed and its life was lived. In his reconstruction of these monuments and their history, Cyril Mango demonstrates how much can be achieved by combining the information gained from meticulous examination of the written sources, whether contemporary or from post-medieval travellers, with that provided by the surviving buildings themselves and the remains that have been excavated.Ce volume, voué à l'histoire, aux monuments et à la topographie de Constantinople la Byzantine, comprend deux études rédigées pour l'occasion, ainsi qu'une mise à jour des travaux qui y sont re-publiés. Bon nombre des études traitent plus particulièrement des constructions impériales datant des premiers siècles d'existence de la cité - tels, les colonnes de Constantin et de Justinien, la Mausolé des Saints Apôtres et les églises de Ste Sophie, St Jean de Studius, ou de Sts Serge et Bacchus; un ensemble de structures qui apportèrent la base monumentale autour de laquelle Constantinople s'est développée et a vécu. Au travers de cette reconstruction des monuments et de leur histoire, Cyril Mango démontre combien peut être atteint en combinant l'information acquise à partir d'un examen méticuleux des sources écrites - que celles-ci soient contemporaines ou proviennent des voyageurs post-médiévaux - à celle que l'on peut tirer des b'timents-mêmes qui ont survécu, ainsi que des restes qui été retrouvés dans les fouilles.

On the death of Edward Gibbon (1737-94), his unpublished papers were left to his friend John Baker Holroyd, first earl of Sheffield, who published them in two volumes in 1796. Volume 2 contains abstracts from Gibbon's reading, with his reflections on what he read, and extracts from his journal (sometimes in French, with a parallel translation), short pieces on various aspects of Roman history, an outline of his planned history of the world from the ninth to the end of the fifteenth century, literary criticism, a history of the House of Brunswick (ancestors of the Hanoverian British royal family), and a riposte to a criticism of his own great work, The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, which is also reissued (in the 1896-1900 edition by J. B. Bury) in the Cambridge Library Collection.
