    The Aztecs

    Richard F. Townsend


    The history of one of the world’s most fascinating civilisations, a people both dynamic and feared, is newly presented in a stunning two-volume Folio edition.

  2. If Not, Winter

    Sappho’s complete surviving oeuvre is translated faithfully for the first time, by poet and renowned scholar Anne Carson, in this exquisite new Folio Society letterpress edition.

  3. Pompeii


    Mary Beard


    In this award-winning history, Mary Beard guides us through the daily life of Pompeii, an existence that is far more complex than we might have realised. Lively, exciting and accessible, this book brings us as close as possible to the real Pompeii.

  4. The Art of War

    Written more than 2,500 years ago, The Art of War remains the most famous military treatise of all time. Sun-tzu’s collection of precepts on strategic warfare has yet to be surpassed.

Explore the secrets and histories of humanity buried beneath the sands with The Folio Society’s Archaeology and Antiques collection. Discover what life was like for an ordinary Trojan, how Pompeians lived before the eruption, what extraordinary artefacts are found in an Egyptian tomb, and much more. Each Folio edition, with unique hardback bindings and painstakingly researched images, will impress as much as the text itself.
