Pliny's One-Man encyclopedia: born in the year 23 of our era,  he read taking notes, because, he said: "no book is so bad as not to contain something good." Pliny wrote a masterpiece of information called Historia Naturalis, around the year 50 A.D. He wrote about "everything known to exist throughout the earth". In the year 79 he was in the Bay of Naples, with his 17 year old nephew, when the Vesubius started erupting. He died, like everybody else in Pompeii. He was 56 years old.
