Basis of the famous (1960) Stanley Kubrick film (screenplay was by blacklisted author Dalton Trumbo). Story about the rebel slaveleader - a former gladiator - whose rebellion scored a few victories against the Roman Empire, before he was killed in action in 71 B.C. One of the more notable fictional narratives about the famous iconic rebel, whose story has been told and retold many, many times - and not just in English. 8vo cloth. Near-fine copy in a good-only jacket that has some small shallow chips at spine extremities, and a closed horizontal tear on the rear panel. There's a few very small faded spots on the edges of the book under the chipped areas tbut the book is otherwise nice and the jacket is really quite presentable despite noted defects.
