A finely printed edition of Thomas North's (1535-1601) famous translation of Plutarch, first published in 1579. "It is impossible to over-estimate the influence of North's vigorous English on contemporary writers, and some critics have called him the first master of English prose. (His work) formed the source from which Shakespeare drew the materials for his Julius Caesar, Cariolanus and Antony and Cleopatra. It is in the last-named play that he follows the 'Lives' most closely, whole speeches being taken direct from North." (E.B. 11th ed.) Size: Octavo. Bookseller Inventory # 21893

Item Description: Stratford-Upon-Avon The Shakespeare Head Press for Basil Blackwell 1928, 1928. 8 volumes. FIRST SHAKESPEARE HEAD PRINTING, A LIMITED EDITION, and one of only 500 copies for sale, numbered by hand in Vol. I. Decorations throughout consisting of portraits within headpieces by Thomas Lowinsky. Large 8vo, publisher's original black cloth, the spines with gilt ruled bands as those on a leather binding, gilt lettering in three compartments, t.e.g. A very handsome, as pristine set in unusually fine condition, quite beautifully preserved, prelims with only a touch of the usual spotting and not even really worth mentioning. The cloth is vivid dark black with bright gilt. Volume I with the Observer Sunday review for the edition dated November 11, 1928 neatly tipped to the front endleaves, and with the 1928 owner's neat calligraphed signature and bookplates to the free-fly. A superb set rarely found is such beautiful conditon. RARE FIRST EDITION, LIMITED ISSUE OF THE SHAKESPEARE HEAD PLUTARCH, ONE OF ONLY 500 COPIES SIGNED FOR SALE. This edition was printed from the first edition of 1579. Lowinsky's portrait head-pieces are taken so far as possible from authentic originals. A handsomely printed set of North's classic translation. In this monumental historical work, Plutarch relates the lives of the historically important Greeks and Romans of ancient times. His studies are revered as among the most important and beautiful of all classical writings . The authorís object is to bring out the moral character in each case, rather than to relate the political events of the time; in essence, at times he will distort the truth in order to exemplify virtue or vice. Nonetheless, he is as reliable as the sources he uses, and very valuable as a historical resource. Thomas Northís translation of Plutarchís LIVES is one of the most famous. His prose considered by many to be "incomparable. [his] achievement in narrative prose is only less signal than Shakespeare's in dramatic verse. North's Plutarch is also well-known as a primary source for the plots of Shakespeare's classical plays and for numerous passages in the non-Roman ones, and he relied almost exclusively on it for the historical background of ancient Rome. Thus it is a very fitting work for the Shakespeare Head Press to have undertaken at Stratford-Upon-Avon. Of this edition perhaps the contemporary review from the Observer sums it up best- "In its stately form and completeness of contents this edition stands alone in our generation. The posthumous vicissitudes of North's genius amongst the publishers make a singular episode in our bibliographical history. Mr. Blackwell gives us a great deal more of North than has been available to the general reader since Pepys's time.". Bookseller Inventory # 25405
