"Holland's monumental English translation of Pliny was dedicated to Sire Robert Cecil, then Queen Elizabeth's Principal Secretary. This encyclopedia of ancient knowledge about the natural world had not been translated into English before, and it would not be again for 250 years. Holland is still the only translator of this work to attempt to evoke it literary richness and beauty."--Note from bookseller

"Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus, commonly known as Suetonius (c. 69 after 122), was a Roman historian belonging to the equestrian order who wrote during the early Imperial era of the Roman Empire. His most important surviving work is a set of biographies of twelve successive Roman rulers, from Julius Caesar to Domitian, entitled De Vita Caesarum. He recorded the earliest accounts of Julius Caesar's epileptic seizures. Other works by Suetonius concern the daily life of Rome, politics, oratory, and the lives of famous writers, including poets, historians, and grammarians. A few of these books have partially survived, but many have been lost."--Wikipedia
