1572 Greek ed PLUTARCH Parallel Lives Alexander the Great Cicero Henri Estienne
[Paris : Henrici Stephani, 1572.] - 1572 Greek ed PLUTARCH Parallel Lives Alexander the Great Cicero Henri Estienne “The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.” Plutarch ‘Plutarch’s Lives’ or ‘Parallel Lives’ is one of the most important and comprehensive collection of biographies of famous Greek and Roman figures. Plutarch was not so much focused on providing a historical account of these famous individuals as much as he was seeking to write of the type of person they were and the life in which they lived. He focuses on Alexander the Great, Romulus and Remus, Demosthenes, Cicero, Brutus, Julius Caesar, and many other important figures. Published complete in Greek, this 3-volume example contains the complete ‘Parallel Lives’ in Greek with continuous pagination. Interestingly, Estienne’s pagination for ‘Parallel Lives’ became the standard pagination for Plutarch editions during his day. This edition of ‘Parallel Lives’ is from the first complete printed edition of Plutarch. Brunet claims this edition to have “beautiful execution and accuracy”.
