Overview

Woolf details here the ways in which English men and women first became seriously aware of and interested in their own and the world's past. Previous works have focused exclusively on the writings of a small minority of historians, yet, through using a variety of manuscript and printed sources, this study examines the wider 'historical culture' within which historical and antiquarian studies could emerge.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The Social Circulation of the Past is...a groundbreaking interpretation of English culture over more than two centuries."—Michael Galgano, James Madison University


"The Social Circulation of the Past merits close study by scholars and students as it models meticulous scholarship with a rich narrative. Woolf constructs a compelling argument for an environment in which historical scholarship found avid, interested readers and students of the past to produce a unique historical culture."—History
