History of England from the Invasion of Julius Caesar to the Revolution of 1688, Volume 1C

by David Hume

This is Volume 1C which covers the reigns of Henry VII to Mary I. The History of England is David Hume's great work on the history of England (also covering Wales, Scotland and Ireland), which he wrote in instalments while he was librarian to the Faculty of Advocates in Edinburgh. It was published in six volumes in 1754, 1756, 1759, and 1761. The first publication of his History was greeted with outrage by all political factions, but it became a best-seller, finally giving him the financial independence, he had long sought. 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 in its day.
