Overview

This is a major new student edition of the text described as 'the first modern classic of English history'. Francis Bacon's penetration into human motives, his life-long experience of politics and government, and his remarkable literary skills, render this History of the Reign of King Henry VII a major work of English literature and an important document in the history of political thought. The edition also includes other relevant writings by Bacon, generous editorial footnotes explaining the historical and political issues of the period, and a substantial glossary.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Vickers's edition—crisply introduced, fully annotated, meticulously glossed, and appending Bacon's fragmentary histories of other Tudor monarchs, together with five of the Essays—now becomes the standard one." The New Criterion

"This new edition of Bacon's The History of the Reign of King Henry VII offers the student of history a good introduction to Jacobean English and Tudor history, economics, and politics." Seventeenth-Century News
