About this Item

260 pages. Dimensions: 9.1in. x 6.2in. x 0.7in.In the Parallel Lives of Plutarch, written in the first century A. D. , Plutarch alternated between Greek and Roman biographies to show how both societies had produced worthy and honourable citizens. F. J. Gould, in his translation for children, decided it would be less confusing for his young readers if he divided the book into two halves, one volume on Greeks and the other on Romans. Here we have the Roman half, which re-tells the ancient tales of virtue and nobility from Romulus and Remus to Caesar and Brutus, bringing their lives and deeds to life in clear and simple prose. This carefully hand-edited volume reproduces the three original black and white illustrations by Walter Crane. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781781391600
