The history of England, from the invasion of Julius Caesar, to the revolution in 1688 / by David Hume to which is prefixed a short account of his life [volumes 2 - 8]
London : Printed for Richardson & Co. 1820 - Physical description: 7v. ; 22cm. Volumes 2 - 8 only. Subjects: England -- History. Summary: The History of England (1754-61) is David Hume's great work on England's history which was written in installments while he was serving as librarian to the Faculty of Advocates in Edinburgh. It was first published in six volumes in 1754, 1756, 1759, and 1761. More a category of books than a single work, Hume's History spanned "from the invasion of Julius Caesar to the Revolution of 1688" and went through over 100 editions. Many considered it the standard history of England until Thomas Macaulay's The History of England from the Accession of James the Second. Very good copies bound in contemporary full aniline calf. Gilt-blocked leather labels to spines, with gilt-crossed bands. Wear to some title labels. Spine bands and panel edges somewhat dulled and rubbed as with age. General surface marks as with age. Remains quite well-preserved overall. 3 Kg. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
