Books By Author Pliny the Elder

Natural History, Paperback (August 1991)» View all books by Pliny the Elder
A work that ranges from astronomy to art and from geography to zoology. Mingling acute observation with often wild speculation, it offers a view of the world as it was understood in the first century AD, whether describing the danger of diving for sponges, the first water-clock, or the use of asses' milk to remove wrinkles.
