The History of England from The Accession of James II

Thomas Babington Macaulay

61- London- Longman, Brown, Green and Longmans, 1849 Book. Hardcover. First edition.. A five volume set of Macaulay's History of England. The second edition of volumes I-II. First edition of volumes III-V. Collated: Complete. There is no portrait frontispiece in the second edition. Thomas Babington Macaulay was a British historian and politician whose works on British history have been hailed as masterpieces. Macaulay's History of England was innovative for his period, framing the true history in a picturesque dramatic style of the classical historians, but with the learned and factual approach of his 18th century forebears. Macaulay's History of England was originally published in five volumes between 1848 and 1861. The first volumes were reissued in that time, and the final volume was published posthumously, compiled from Macaulay's notes by his sister Lady Trevelyan. Condition: Uniformly bound in half calf bindings with marbled boards by Hale and Roworth. Externally, generally smart with some moderate rubbing and wear to the head and tail of the spines, heavier to the head of the spine of volume II. Loss to the spine labels of volume II and total loss of one spine label to volume I. LIfting to spine label of volume III. Front hinge slightly strained to volume IV after half title. Internally, firmly bound. Pages generally bright and clean aside from some light spotting to first and last pages including title pages. Ink signatures to title pages of all volumes. Top right corner of the half title to volume one has been clipped, removing the majority of an ink signature. Slight loss to head to title page to volume II not affecting text. Overall: GOOD..

Macaulay, Thomas Babington

New York: Harper & Brothers, 1861. First American edition. Brown stamped muslin with elaborate borders and medallion. Gilt titles. Glazed bright yellow endpapers in Vols. I & II. All volumes rubbed, heads of spines with small chips and tears, a bit more extensive on Volume V which also has a 1/2" round chip in the top spine panel; owner's signature and/or bookplate signed in years of publcation in first four volumes; scattered foxing throughout; still a good or better set of an important work with each volume in a clear archival jacket... Vol. I: frontis, xi, 619 pp. + adv.[12]; Vol. II: xiii, 612 pp. + adv.[12]; Vol. III: xii, 682 pp.; Vol. IV: xi, 750 pp.; Vol. V: xiii, 305 pp. + adv.[8]. Vols III & IV with indices to each vol. Vol V with index to entire work. 8vo. Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800-1859) was historian, politician, and author. His History of England stands as one of the great literary works of the nineteenth century, one that has never gone out of print. As a work of history it is deeply and extensively research and still remains one the most detailed accounts of its subject and not as partial to the Whig cause as once asumed.. Originally Macaulay was to bring his history to 1830, later scaled back to 1714, but he died after reaching only 1697. The first two volumes were published in 1849, the next two in 1856, and the last, postumously, in 1861, "edited by his sister, Lady Trevelyan, with a complete index to the entire work."

Marvin) on front flyleaf of first volume, ink name and date (Arthur Tappan, 1860) on front flyleaf of second. 1859 Hard Cover. We have more books available by this author!.

Each volumed indexed individually, notes and extensive index of the entire work follows text of fifth volume. Fold-out of Lord Macaulay's Memoranda precedes text of fifth volume. "The History of England from the Accession of James the Second is the full title of the multi-volume work by Lord Macaulay more generally known as 'The History of England'. The history is famous for its brilliant ringing prose and for its confident, sometimes dogmatic, emphasis on a progressive model of British history, according to which the country threw off superstition, autocracy and confusion to create a balanced constitution and a forward-looking culture combined with freedom of belief and expression. This model of human progress has been called the Whig interpretation of history. Macaulay's approach has been criticised by later historians for its one-sidedness and its complacency. His tendency to see history as a drama led him to treat figures whose views he opposed as if they were villains, while his approved characters were presented as heroes. Macaulay goes to considerable length, for example, to absolve his hero William III of any responsibility for the Glencoe massacre. Macaulay's approach to writing history was innovative for his period. He consciously fused the picturesque, dramatic style of classical historians such as Thucydides and Tacitus with the learned and factual approach of his eighteenth century precursors such as Hume, following the plan laid out in his own earlier Essay on History." ABOUT THE AUTHOR: "Thomas Babington Macaulay, 1st Baron Macaulay, PC (25 October 1800 - 28 December 1859) was a nineteenth-century English poet, historian and Whig politician and Member of Parliament for Edinburgh. He wrote extensively as an essayist and reviewer, and on British history. The son and eldest child of Zachary Macaulay, a Scottish Highlander who became a colonial governor and abolitionist, Thomas was born in Leicestershire, England, and educated at Trinity College, Cambridge. Macaulay was noted as a child prodigy. As a toddler, gazing out the window from his cot at the chimneys of a local factory, he is reputed to have put the question to his mother: "Does the smoke from those chimneys come from the fires of hell?" Whilst at Cambridge he wrote much poetry and won several prizes, including the Chancellor's Gold Medal in June 1821. In 1825 he published a prominent essay on Milton in the Edinburgh Review. In 1826 he was called to the bar but showed more interest in a political than a legal career. He never married and had no children. In 1830 he became a Member of Parliament for the pocket borough of Calne. He made his name with a series of speeches in favour of parliamentary reform, attacking such inequalities as the exclusion of Jews. After the Great Reform Act was passed, he became MP for Leeds. Macaulay was Secretary to the Board of Control from 1832 until 1833. After the passing of the Government of India Act 1833, he was appointed as the first Law Member of the Governor-General's Council. He went to India in 1834. Serving on the Supreme Council of India between 1834 and 1838 he was instrumental in creating the foundations of bilingual colonial India, by convincing the Governor-General to adopt English as the medium of instruction in higher education, from the sixth year of schooling onwards, rather than Sanskrit or Arabic then used in the institutions supported by the East India Company. In the aftermath of the Indian Rebellion of 1857, Macaulay's criminal law system was enacted. It included the three major codes - The Indian Penal Code, 1860, the Criminal Procedure Code, 1872 and the Civil Procedure Code, 1909. The Indian Penal Code was later reproduced in most other British colonies -- and to date many of these laws are still in effect in places as far apart as Singapore, Sri Lanka, Nigeria and Zimbabwe. The term Macaulay's Children is used to refer to people born of Indian ancestry who adopt Western culture as a lifestyle, or display attitudes influenced by colonisers. The term is usually used in a derogatory fashion, and the connotation is one of disloyalty to one's country and one's heritage. This frame of mind or attitude is also referred to as Macaulayism. The passage to which the term refers is from his Minute on Indian Education, delivered in 1835. Returning to Britain in 1838, he became MP for Edinburgh. He was made Secretary at War in 1839. After the fall of Lord Melbourne's government Macaulay devoted more time to literary work, but returned to office as Paymaster General in Lord John Russell's administration. In 1841 Macaulay addressed the issue of copyright law. Macaulay's position, slightly modified, became the basis of copyright law in the English-speaking world for many decades. Macaulay argued that copyright is a monopoly and as such has generally negative effects on society. In the election of 1847 he lost his seat in Edinburgh. He attributed the loss to the anger of religious zealots over his speech in favor of expanding the annual grant to Maynooth College in Ireland, which trained young men for the Catholic priesthood; some observers also attributed his loss to his neglect of local issues. In 1849 he was elected Rector of the University of Glasgow, a position with no administrative duties, often awarded by the students to men of political or literary fame; he also received the freedom of the city. In 1852, the voters of Edinburgh offered to re-elect him to Parliament. He accepted on the express condition that he need not campaign and would not pledge himself to a position on any political issue. Remarkably, he was elected on those terms. However, he seldom attended the House, due to ill health; indeed his weakness after suffering a heart attack caused him to postpone for several months making his speech of thanks to the Edinburgh voters. He resigned his seat in January, 1856. Macaulay sat on the committee to decide on subjects from British history to be painted in the new Palace of Westminster. The need to collect reliable portraits of noted figures in British history for this project led to the foundation of the National Portrait Gallery, which was formally established on 2 December 1856. Macaulay was amongst its founder trustees and is honoured as one of only three busts above the main entrance. He was raised to the Peerage in 1857 as Baron Macaulay, of Rothley in the County of Leicester but seldom attended the House of Lords. His health made work increasingly difficult for him. He died in 1859, leaving his major work, The History of England from the Accession of James the Second incomplete. He was buried in Westminster Abbey. Macaulay's political writings are famous for their brilliant ringing prose and for its confident, sometimes dogmatic, emphasis on a progressive model of British history, according to which the country threw off superstition, autocracy and confusion to create a balanced constitution and a forward-looking culture combined with freedom of belief and expression. This model of human progress has been called the Whig interpretation of history. This philosophy appears most clearly in the essays Macaulay wrote for the Edinburgh Review. But it is also reflected in the History; the most stirring passages in the work are those that describe the "Glorious Revolution" of 1688. Macaulay's approach has been criticised by later historians for its one-sidedness and its complacency. His tendency to see history as a drama led him to treat figures whose views he opposed as if they were villains, while characters he approved of were presented as heroes. Macaulay goes to considerable length, for example, to absolve his main hero William III of any responsibility for the Glencoe massacre. Macaulay's nephew, Sir George Otto Trevelyan, wrote a best-selling "Life and Letters" of his famous uncle, which is still the best complete life of Macaulay. His great-nephew was the Cambridge historian G. M. Trevelyan. During his first period out of office he composed Lays of Ancient Rome, a series of very popular ballads about heroic episodes in Roman history. The most famous of them, Horatius, concerns the heroism of Horatius Cocles. During the 1840s he began work on his most famous work, 'The History of England from the Accession of James the Second', publishing the first two volumes in 1848, the next two volumes appearing in 1855. At first, he had planned to bring his history down to the reign of George III. After publication of his first two volumes, his hope was to complete his work with the death of Queen Anne in 1714. However, at his death in 1859, he had finished only one further volume. A sixth, bringing the History down to the death of William III, was completed by his sister, Lady Trevelyan, after his death.

The History of England From The Accession Of James II

Thomas Babington Macaulay

London - Longman, Green, & Co., 1889 Book. Good. Hardcover. Seven volumes of Macaulay's famous History of England, uniformly bound. Thomas Babington Macaulay was a British poet, historian and Whig politician. He wrote extensively as an essayist and reviewer, and on British history. Macaulay's approach to writing theHistorywas innovative for his period. He consciously fused the picturesque, dramatic style of classical historians such as Thucydides and Tacitus with the learned and factual approach of his 18th century precursors such as Hume, following the plan laid out in his own earlierEssay on History(1828). TheHistoryis famous for its brilliant ringing prose and for its confident, sometimes dogmatic, emphasis on a progressive model of British history. According to this view, England threw off superstition, autocracy and confusion to create a balanced constitution and a forward-looking culture combined with freedom of belief and expression. This model of human progress has been called the Whig interpretation of history. Here with seven volume of the eight called for. The seventh volume ends with William III in 1697. Includes a frontispiece of the author's portrait in volume one. Collated: the volumes present are complete. Condition: In half calf, with gilt edges. Externally with rubbing to the extremitiesof the boards and more generally to the spines, which are also faded. The spines also show general light shelfwear. There are marks to the spines of volume one, six, and seven. Internally, each volume has an ink inscription to the front blank. Otherwise generally clean and bright throughout, and firmly bound. Overall: GOOD.
