"Salve" dear Latin culture freaks ¡

I plan to buy the famous Gibbons in two volumes (the French translation of course – édition “Robert Laffont”, collection “Bouquins”).

As I am already rather well informed about the roman history (already 70 volumes are laying on my bookshelves) I am wondering if it is worthwhile…

Of course I really do know that these two big volumes are really considered as a “must” about the roman history, but, I am wondering if, buying it, I will really improve my knowledge about these historic matters, or, if I will spend a lot of money for something that I do not really need.

I would be glad if you could give me your opinion about it and/or suggest me some more important and/or interesting books to buy about his subject.

Thanks in advance,

Vale,

Thierry
