Thomas MACAULAY Histoire d'Angleterre depuis l'avénement de Jacques II. Histoire du règne de Guillaume III

Thomas MACAULAY

Histoire d'Angleterre depuis l'avénement de Jacques II. Histoire du règne de Guillaume III

Charpentier, Paris 1870 , 6 tomes en 6 Vol. in 12 (12x18,5cm), relié.


Second edition and first Charpentier for these two books. The history of England (2 volumes) was translated by Jules Peyronnet, and the story of William (4 volumes) by Amédée Pichot. Half red morocco iced over. Binding unsigned master. Back to nerves ornate. Title, volume number with golden date tail. Double gold band on the flats. Golden head. Scattered spots. Very nice copy, perfectly prepared and beautifully decorative series. Whig history Macaulay had a profound impact, although later he was blamed his vision, that of belonging to a liberal Whig and analyzing the Revolution of 1668 as a glorious act for the future of England. The Whigs have always shown their opposition to royal absolutism. Macaulay's writings were praised for the quality of their prose and their main thesis, that of England constant march towards progress since the famous Revolution of 1668. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
