Plutarch's Lives, 1665, original boards, Greek, Roman,


Plutarch's Lives, published in London, 1665, for J. Williams & William Gilbertson & Henry Marsb.

'The Worthies of the World OR, The Lives of the Most Heroick Greeks & Romans Compared, By that Learned & Greeat Historiographer, Plutarch of Chaeronea...'


'To Which Are Added More Lives, Out of Aemilius Probus & Others by Several Hands..'

First translated by Sir Thomas North in 1579, this is a scarce early copy of a cornerstone of Renaissance literature, a direct and often literal influence on many Shakespeare plays.

In original boards, five raised bands to spine, title piece to spine is missing but the name ' Plutarch' is apparent. Hinges firm, bookplate to front endpaper, engraved frontis. of Plutarch. Period handwritten name ' Plutarch' to the half title. Text is neat and clean, no spotting, towards the end a few pages have a watermark to the edge. Some chafing to edges and mild wear to top of spine, ths is an attractive and robust copy.
