Edward Gibbon

it’s been 270 years since he was born… well, sorta, at least.. if you allow for the switch between the Julian Calendar & the Gregorian Calendar

for some info on him see this entry in the 1911 Encyclopaedia Britannica

for some of his work, as a historian, see this site from ccel.org
