    A gentleman scholar and the first great English biographer, John Aubrey (1626-1697) spent his life collecting biographical details and anecdotes about illustrious figures of the 17th century, and wrote his eccentric masterpiece, with its vivid and sometimes scurrilous portraits, shortly before his death. This selection of his literary Brief Lives is from Andrew Clark's 1898 edition. Foreword by Ruth Scurr.
