The best early Italian version of Plutarch's Lives, translated by Ludovico Domenichi and incorporating his final corrections, with a life of the author by Thomaso Porcacchi and rechecked against the Greek text by Leonardo Ghini of Cortona. "The influence of Plutarch's method has been constantly manifest in the biographies of the modern great and in the authors who have been inspired by it. Shakespeare relied almost exclusively on Plutarch for the historical background of ancient Rome, and it is a very fair compliment to the genius of Plutarch that such magic as the departure of Anthony from Alexandria can be wrought from it" - Printing and the Mind of Man 48.
