The History of the Rebellion and Civil Wars in England
Oxford - Oxford University Press, 1849 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Edward Earl of Clarendon's contemporaryHistory of the Rebellion and Civil Wars in England together with an Historical View of the Affairs of Ireland for the first timecarefully printed from the original MS. preserved in the Bodlein Library to which are subjoined the notes of Bishop Warburton. In seven volumes complete. Edward Hyde, 1st Earl of Clarendon (1609 - 1674) was an English historian and statesman, and grandfather of two English monarchs, Mary II and Queen Anne. During the Civil War, Hyde served in the King's council as Chancellor of the Exchequer, and was one of the more moderate figures in the royalist camp. By 1645 his moderation had alienated him from the King, and he was made guardian to the Prince of Wales, with whom he fled to Jersey in 1646. He spent his time in exile working on the History of the Rebellion and Civil Wars in England, his classic account of the English Civil War. (The proceeds from this book's publication were instrumental in building the Clarendon Building at Oxford. )Hyde was not closely involved with Charles II's attempts to regain the throne in 1649 to 1651. Hyde rejoined the exiled king in the latter year, and soon became his chief advisor; Charles named him Lord Chancellor in 1658. On the restoration of the monarchy in 1660, he returned to England with the King and became even closer to the royal family through the marriage of his daughter, Anne, to the king's brother James, Duke of York, the heir-presumptive. Their two daughters, Mary II and Queen Anne would each one day reign in their own right. Condition: In calf bindings. Externally, generally smart but with slight wear to extremities, slight loss to somespine labels and some marks to boards. With rear joint to volume four cracked with backstrip starting to lift and five hinges strained. Internally, firmly bound. Generally bright and clean throughout with only the very odd spot to some endpapers and the very occasional handling mark. Overall: VERY GOOD.
