Set in 50 b.c., these hysterical historical tales follow the adventures of Asterix and his pals in the days of the Roman Empire. To impress Julius Caesar, Queen Cleopatra promises to build the Roman Emperor a magnificent palace in just three months. Of course, Asterix has to get involved. By the time his feisty group from Gaul have finished, they've outwitted the Roman army, too.
1972. Fourth impression. A very good copy in illustrated boards which are lightly tanned and rubbed. The contents are very clean and bright.
