lawrencehelm@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx quotes from  Twain:


—'MOMMSEN!  

For the record, the contemporary English translations are the work  of W. 
P. Dickson, a professor at Glasgow. 
 
The first three volumes (which contained five 'books') were published  
during 1862 to 1866 by R. Bentley & Son.
 
Over several decades, Dickson prepared further editions of this  
translation, keeping pace with Mommsen's own revisions.
 
With regard to Mommsen's 1885 "fifth volume" on the Roman  provinces, 
Dickson immediate began to supervise its translation. 
 
In 1886 it appeared as The Provinces of the Roman Empire. From Caesar to  
Diocletian.
 
Mommsen's missing FOURTH volume was reconstructed from student notes  and 
published in 1992 under the title Römische Kaiser Geschichte. 
 
It was soon translated into English by Clare Krojzl as "A History of Rome  
under the Emperors".
 
The Italian translators are various (or 'varied and many' as McEvoy might  
prefer -- He finds 'various' otiose), and they include:
 
Teodoro Mommsen, 1943.
