Description

This edition of "Plutarch's Lives" is quite rare for, as an October 23, 2012 WorldCat search revealed, there are only 59 libraries in the world have a copy of this 1902 Oxford Edition of this work.

These five volumes are the 1902 Oxford Edition, which was copyrighted in 1859 by Little, Brown, and Co. In the Deluxe version of this work all five volumes are combined on one  CD, or DVD, and therefore all 5 volumes can be searched at one time. They contain the footnotes and appendixes which were omitted in the 2001 Modern Library Paperback edition. These five volumes contain a total of 2546 pages, all of which are searchable at one time.

D. M. Bennett, in his "World's Sages, Thinkers, and Reformers," reports that "The learned Theodorus Gaza was not so very extravagant when, being asked by a friend "if learning must suffer a general shipwreck, and he had only his choice of one author to be preserved, who that author should be?"  He answered, "Plutarch."

D. M. Bennett, as cited above, goes on to report that “And M. Villemain, another great critic, in alluding to Plutarch’s Lives truthful and naive minuteness in the delineation of his characters, remarks: "The immortal vivacity of the style of Plutarch, seconded by a happy choice of the noblest subjects that can occupy the imagination and the thoughts, explains the prodigious interest elicited by his historical works. He has painted man as he is; he has worthily recorded the greatest characters and most admirable actions of  the human species. The attraction of such reading will never pass away;  it appeals to all ages and conditions of life; it kindles the enthusiasm of youth,and commends itself to the sober  wisdom of age.”
