Descripción

"The Elizabethan age is here seen through the eyes of one of the most prominent scholars of that period. William Camden, an official of Queen Elizabeth's court, a confidant of her great minister Lord Burghley, and a founder of ther Society of Antiquaries, wrote this History as a monument to the achievements of the queen and her government. Camden's aim was to present the political, economic, and social events of his time in the plainest, most lucid style possible. He was confident that the bare facts would command the admiration of his readers. Further, he had a concept of the role of the historian that was unique among his contemporaries. He self-consciously set out to detach himself as writer from the history he was wirting. 'Mine own judgement I have not delivered according to prejudice or affectation; whilst writing with an undistempered and even mind; I have rather sifted out the sense and opinion of others; and scarcely have I anywhere interposed mine own, no, not by the bye, since it is a question whether an historian may lawfully do it'." This book has 351 pages. The text contains NO internal marks whatsoever. N° de ref. de la librería 062447
