CLARENDON, Edward Earl of The History of the Rebellion and Civil Wars in England Re-Edited From A Fresh Collation Of The Original MS In The Bodleian Library, With Marginal Dates And Additional Notes

At The Clarendon Press, 1888.

First Macray Edition. Six volumes. 8vo. Publisher's burgundy cloth, gilt lettering to spines. Large fold out plate showing the first page of Clarendon's original MS to volume one, A bright, very good set. Some staining to covers of volume IV.

Macray worked at the Bodleian Library, and produced this significant nineteenth century edition of Clarendon's history from the original manuscript.
Clarendon's account of the Civil War is highly regarded, being among the "most valuable of all the contemporary accounts of the civil wars" (DNB). As Chancellor of the Exchequer and later Lord Chancellor Hyde worked closely with both Charles I and II, before differences led to his exile to France in 1667.
