"John Aubrey, the seventeenth-century writer and antiquary, is an historical figure no less interesting and characteristic of his period than Pepys or Evelyn. His masterpiece, the 400 or more 'Brief Lives' from which so many of the best character sketches in English history have been taken, shows him to have been on terms of acquaintance with practically all the distinguished figures of his period. Mr Anthony Powell's biography is not only the first on this versatile and interesting figure but also provides, for a backcloth, a unique pictureof intellectual and bohemian life during the latter part of the seventeent h century." - from the dustjacket.
