The English Civil War [3 Volumes, Folio Society, 2001]

£29.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Published by the Folio Society in 2001. Includes illustrations in colour and black and white. Three volumes, together with the slip case. Illustrated board covers with deep maroon dye to top edges of pages.

The three volumes in this collection are titled: The King's Peace (1937-1941), The King's War (1941-1947) and The Trial of Charles I (1948 &1949). These book detail the cause and effect of the first and second English Civil wars.

The author, Dame Cicely Veronica Wedgwood (1910 – 1997) was an English historian who published under the name C. V. Wedgwood. She specialised in European history of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Her work in continental European history included the major study The Thirty Years War (1938) and biographies of William the Silent and Cardinal Richelieu. She devoted the greater part of her research to English history, especially in the English Civil War. Her major works included a biography of Oliver Cromwell and two volumes of a planned trilogy, The Great Rebellion, which included The King's Peace (1955) and The King's War (1958). She continued the story with The Trial of Charles I (1964). Her biographies and narrative histories are said to have provided a clear, entertaining middle ground between popular and scholarly works.

In very good condition. A few marks on the top right corner of the slip case.
