  • Notes "North's first edition (1579) was used as the basis for the present versión ... However, the first edition included only fity "lives" -forth-eight comprising all that is now known of Plutarch'w own biographical writings, with two fabrications ("Hannibal" and "Scipio African") that were compiled in the fifteenth century. North later translated seven additional fabrications (the lives of Epaminodas, Philip of Macedon, Dionysius, Octavius Caesar, Plutarch, Seneca, and the "Nine Chieftains"), which are given place in the present edition only for the sake of the translator ... In addition, the present versión contains North's translation of a comparison of Alexander and Caesar, written by his French contemporary, Simon Goulart, and first printed in English in the edition of 1603." -- v. 1, p. v-vi.
