About This Item

David Huntington. Fair with no dust jacket. 1816. Revised Edition. Hardcover. Front cover hanging on by a thread. Pages and end paper very tanned. Covering on spine is cracked and peeling. Covers rubbed, chipped, scuffed. ; Sewn binding paper over boards. Book looks to be in fair shape for its age and use. ; Volume I; Vol. 1; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 345 pages; Plutarch is the most famous biographer of the ancient world and the author of a famous collection now known as Plutarch's Lives. Plutarch's original title was Parallel Lives of Famous Greeks and Romans, and that describes his unique approach: the biographies are presented in pairs, the life of one Greek contrasted with that of a similar Roman. Plutarch's subjects were statesmen, generals and public figures including Alexander the Great, Solon, Pyrrhus and Marc Antony, and together the biographies present a basic history of all Greece and Rome up to Plutarch's times. Hence Plutarch has been a favorite of scholars and schoolteachers for centuries. Plutarch's other famous work is the Morals, a collection of essays on topics ranging from religion and zoology to marriage. .
