Item Description: London, Printed by Abraham Miller, and are to be sold by William Lee, 1657. Folio, mostly in sixes, pp. [16], 443, 446 - 1031, [27], 76, [34], with an engraved title, dated 1656, designed by Francis Barlow, and integral engraved portrait vignettes in the last part (the space for the intended vignette of Priscian the Grammarian remains blank on 5G1 verso), title printed in red and black, separate title pages for 'The Lives of Epaminondas [etc.]', dated 1656, and for 'Prosopographia: or some select Pourtraitures and Lives by Andrew Thevet', dated 1657 (mistakenly bound before the 'Notes and Explanations' at 3T1); with an advertisement leaf and thirty-four pages of index; early prelims a little tattered, split in 5D2 without loss, but a very good copy in contemporary calf, rubbed, rebacked.'Fifth' (i.e. sixth) edition, with added material. North's celebrated translation of Plutarch has long been recognized as a major source for Shakespeare, providing not only the historical framework for Julius Caesar, Anthony and Cleopatra, and Coriolanus, but 'long passages of magnificent prose' that Shakespeare put 'into blank verse with little change' (F. E. Halliday).Dedicated to Elizabeth I, North's Plutarch first appeared in 1579 and was reprinted in 1595. The third edition (1603) was the first to add new material, appending lives translated from L'Escluse. There were no additions in the next two editions (1612, 1631), but, having been encouraged 'to venture upon a new and fifth impression', the stationer William Lee, wishing to render it 'both acceptable to the present Age, and famous to Posterity, decided to add the 'quintessence' of André Thevet's Pourtraits et vies des Hommes illustres Grecz, Latin, et Payens (Paris, 1584), being 'the very marrow of his observations during his twenty three yeers travails and Peregrinations, throughout the chiefest and remotest parts in the world (never as yet extant nor seen in English)'.Among the new biographies from Thevet (mostly translated by the playwright George Gerbier d'Ouvilly) are those of Aristotle, Homer, Sappho, Charlemagne, Tamburlaine, Atabalipa King of Peru, and Gutenberg, with a two-page poem commemorating his life and 'the Excellency of the Art of Printing'.Wing P 2633.

The Lives of the Noble Grecians and: Plutarch of Cheronaea

Item Description: Cambridge, John Hayes for George Sawbridge., 1676. Folio. Engraved Frontispiece, Titlepage in red and black, [VIII] 8, 1030, 2, 20 pages / Prosopographia:[VI], 91,[XXXVI] pages. Original 18th century leather-binding with five raised bands and the original spinelabel. The binding with stronger signs of wear but firm and original. Interior in very good condition with only very mild signs of foxing. Very Rare ! Sir Thomas North (15351604) was an English justice of the peace, military officer and translator. His translation into English of Plutarch's Parallel Lives is notable for being a source text used by William Shakespeare for several of his plays. The first edition of his translation of Plutarch, from the French of Jacques Amyot, appeared in 1579. The first edition was dedicated to Queen Elizabeth, and was followed by another edition in 1595, containing fresh Lives. A third edition of his Plutarch was published, in 1603, with more translated Parallel Lives, and a supplement of other translated biographies. According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica Eleventh Edition, " it is almost impossible to overestimate the influence of North's vigorous English on contemporary writers, and some critics have called him the first master of English prose." The Lives translation formed the source from which Shakespeare drew the materials for his Julius Caesar, Coriolanus, and Antony and Cleopatra. It is in the last-named play that he follows the Lives most closely, whole speeches being taken directly from North. Bookseller Inventory # 28162AB
