History of England, Volume 5: From the Invasion of Julius Caesar to the Revolution in 1688 (Hardback, New edition)

By Hume, David
Foreword by Todd, William B.

David Hume's great, enduring reputation in philosophy tends to obscure the fact that, among his contemporaries, his history of England was a more successful work. The history covers almost 1800 years. Hume saw English history as an evolution from a government of will to a governm...ent of law. Advanced in Hume's masterly prose, this argument continues to make the History a valuable study for the modern reader. This Liberty Fund edition is based on the edition of 1778, the last to contain corrections by Hume. The typography has been modernized for ease of reading. Hume's own index to the entire work may be found at the conclusion of volume VI.
