Portrait frontispieces of Clarendon by White after Lely. Title page vignettes, decorated initials, and engraved head and tail pieces.

Vol. III has mark on front cover, small mark on text block edge, slightly rough edge to last pages, and some soiling to margins in rear index pages. English statesman and historian Edward Hyde, Earl of Clarendon (1609 1674) was always loyal to his king, becoming a key figure for the Royalist cause and serving as Chancellor of the Exchequer after the Restoration in 1660. This three-volume detailed account was the most influential contemporary history of the English Civil War. The original publication of the History was part of a publishing war between supporters of the rival Roundheads and Cavaliers. The publication of the Roundhead Edmund Ludlow's Memoirs in 1698-1699 was a sensational success and led to a spate of Roundhead Civil War memoirs. In 1701 the Tories began a counter-attack by printing the Cavalier memoirs of Sir Philip Warwick, followed in the next year by the first volume of Clarendon's History and the memoirs of Sir Thomas Herbert, Gentleman of the Bedchamber to Charles I. Clarendon wrote portions of this work at different times with different objects. He wrote his original History between 1646 and 1648, but only recorded events to March 1644. Perhaps he hoped that his interpretation of recent errors would instruct the king or his son in the future.After being banished from England during the Commonwealth, he wrote his autobiographical Life between 1668 and 1670. He then revised the History in 1671 by incorporating the Life into it and writing new sections covering events after March 1644. It was his sons who offered the original manuscript to Oxford. After much editorial correction, the three-part work was published beginning in 1702. Seller Inventory # 114784

Clarendon's account of the events in Ireland after the death of Charles I, the supplement to his famous History of the Rebellion and Civil Wars in England (1702-4), had previously circulated in manuscript only. Edward Hyde (as he then was) was a close personal friend and political ally of the first duke of Ormond (1610-1688), leader of the Irish protestant Royalists, and Clarendon's account of the Civil War in Ireland is in part a defence of Ormond's conduct.

First Edition of Clarendon s celebrated History, the most valuable contemporary account of the English Civil War. Begun in April, 1641, and finished during the period of Clarendon s exile, which extended from 1667 until his death, the History was originally prepared for printing under the direction of Laurence Hyde, Earl of Rochester, with the assistance of Dr. Henry Aldrich, Dean of Christ Church, and Thomas Sprat, Bishop of Rochester. Rochester wrote the introduction and dedications. First published in 1702-04, it was one of the handsomest books hitherto produced in England. The book is printed in the Great Primer roman and italic type which had been commissioned by John Fell, Dean of Christ Church and Bishop of Oxford, when he headed the partnership that rented the University s right to print during the years 1672-90. The type was designed and cut by Peter de Walpergen, a German who was employed as typefounder by the partners at Oxford. The fine ornaments & initials were engraved by a Dutchman, Michael Burghers, who succeeded David Loggan to the appointment of engraver to the University. Abbott 1236. Davies & Keeler 305.
