The History of England

From the Accession of James the Second

By Lord Thomas Babington Macaulay

1889 - London - Longmans, Green and Co.

7" by 5"; (xxiv) 776pp.; (xi) 820pp.

 

DETAILS

A smartly bound copy of Macaulay's influential and popular History of England.

Macaulay's approach to writing the History was innovative for his period. He consciously fused the picturesque, dramatic style of classical historians such as Thucydides and Tacitus with the learned and factual approach of his 18th century precursors such as Hume, following the plan laid out in his own earlier Essay on History (1828).

The History is famous for its brilliant ringing prose and for its confident, sometimes dogmatic, emphasis on a progressive model of British history. According to this view, England threw off superstition, autocracy and confusion to create a balanced constitution and a forward-looking culture combined with freedom of belief and expression. This model of human progress has been called the Whig interpretation of history.

Complete in two volumes.

CONDITION

In armorial tree-calf bindings. Externally smart, with just some light rubbing to the extremities. One joint starting, and marks to the rear board of volume I. Internally, generally firmly bound, although slightly strained in places. Pages have some marginal browning and the occasional spot. Overall: VERY GOOD.
