      The Histories Tacitus introduces his themes and most of the major players at the beginning; he does not describe the death of Nero and accession of Galba because those events belong to an account of the reign of Nero (not yet written, as Tacitus wrote the Annals after he wrote the Histories) Book 1.   1: You get Tacitus' complete works - Annals, Histories, Agricola, and Germania. 2: Addition material - good little intro by Robin Lane Fox, chronological summary (for the Annals), genealogical tables (Augustus and direct descendants), good notes for all the works ( pages worth), six useful maps, and an index.5/5(8).

      Tacitus: Annals Book 1 [1] 1. ROME at the beginning was ruled by kings. Freedom and the consulship were established by Lucius Brutus. The histories of Tiberius, Caius, Claudius, and Nero, while they were in power, were falsified through terror, and after their death were written under the irritation of a recent hatred. Hence my purpose is. Only the first four and a half books survive to us. They deal with the years 69 and are known as The Histories. The 6 Annals, which soon followed, dealt with the Julian dynasty after the death of Augustus. Of Augustus' constitution of the principate and of Rome's 'present happiness' under Trajan, Tacitus did not live to write.
