Holmes’s inspiration for this engaging biography of John Lothrop Motley (1814–1877), was his personal relationship with the American historian and diplomat who wrote the incomparable Rise of the Dutch Republic. Holmes also studies Motley’s correspondence.

About the Author
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (1809-1894) was an American physician and author whose essays were published regularly in The Atlantic Monthly—a magazine he named, and which still thrives today. As a doctor, Holmes was an influential early proponent of the germ disease of contagion, and pressed for the training of women and African American physicians.
