The Jacobean Age [1941, Reprint]

£12.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

First published in 1938, this is the 1941 reprint published by Longmans, Green & Co.

A detailed study of the Jacobean age; the first quarter of the 17th century. The author, David Mathew has used as his source reference material the manuscripts of Robert Cecil, Secretary of State to Elizabeth I and James I, to which he has added private letters, informal notes and depositions from many parts of England, providing an insight into the state of mind of the public at the time. It includes numerous footnotes and an extensive index.

A fascinating study of the period.

There is an inscription in the front end-paper reading: 'Margaret Sweeney, 1942'.

Complete with original dust jacket, which although not price-clipped, does have quite a bit of wear, tears and creasing. However the internal pages and binding are sound enough condition, with some foxing, particularly on the cut edges of the pages. Overall Fair to Good condition.
