Plutarch's Lives, written at the beginning of the second century A.D., is a social history of the ancient world by one of the greatest biographers and moralists of all time.

In what is by far his most famous and influential work, Plutarch reveals the character and personality of his subjects and how they ultimately led to tragedy or victory. Richly anecdotal and full of detail.

Plutarch's Lives is an excellent addition to your vintage collection or home library.
