Books By Author Pliny the Elder

Pliny on Art and Society by Pliny the Elder Pliny on Art and Society, Hardback (September 1991)

Pliny sketches a theory of advancing moral decline and extravagance, in the course of which he gives an account of six centuries of classical art and a portrait of the world of the rich Roman collector.

Natural History by Pliny the Elder Natural History, Paperback (August 1991)

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.
