Overview

This volume presents seventeenth-century Parliament as an institutional event that generated great interest both within the gates of the Palace of Westminster and the country at large. The volume includes unpublished notes and diaries of the 1604-10 Parliament by Sir Edward Montagu, Sir Robert Cotton and Sir George Manners; committee lists that highlight the apathetic attitude of MPs and the chaotic nature of the nascent bureaucracy; and the translation of two letters from the Spanish Ambassador, Gondomar, to the Infanta that detail the personal nature of James I's kingship.
