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. Bookseller Inventory # 114784

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.

Item Description: London: printed by H.P. for J. Wilford, and T. Jauncy, 1720, 1720. Octavo (226 × 135 mm), large paper copy. Contemporary red goatskin, the covers gilt tooled with a double fillet border and a mitred roll-tooled panel with a large ornament at the corners and clusters of ornaments along the sides enclosing a smaller, different roll-tooled panel; the spine divided into seven panels, black goatskin label lettered in gilt in second, others gilt to three distinct designs, raised bands; board-edges and turn-ins gilt with a floral roll, comb-marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Housed in a dark brown flat backed cloth solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Ormonde bookplate on front pastedown; collector's bookplate on rear pastedown. Headcaps worn and with a little minor restoration, corners just worn, four leaves (sigs. M5-8) with short marginal tears and creasing at inner corner of top margin not affecting text, these flaws minor only: an excellent copy. Engraved frontispiece portrait of James Butler, first duke of Ormond, after Godfrey Kneller. First edition, large paper copy, from the family library of James Butler, second duke of Ormond (1665–1745), apparently bound for presentation. 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. The second duke of Ormond was the first duke's grandson; he kept the family alliances alive by marrying Clarendon's granddaughter, Lady Anne Hyde, in 1682. But by the time of the publication of this attempted rehabilitation of his grandfather, he was himself in disgrace and exile. Lord lieutenant of Ireland under Queen Anne, Ormond lost all his offices on the accession of George I. He had been in regular contact with the exiled Jacobite court, perhaps hoping to play a role comparable to that of George Monck at the restoration of Charles II in 1660, but fell victim to the whig triumph. He was impeached for high treason in 1715 and fled the country, never to return. Ormond remained loyal to the Stuarts despite his unswerving Anglicanism. He died in exile on 16 November 1745 at age 80, having offered the previous year to travel to Dunkirk to assist Prince Charles Edward's invasion fleet. This volume was presumably sent not to him personally but to his seat at Kilkenny Castle. It contains the later bookplate of his descendant, the Earl of Ormonde, and was in the library sale of the Marquess of Ormonde at Kilkenny Castle in 1935, the date at which the Butler family, of Anglo-Norman origin, finally left Ireland. With a modern collector's bookplate discreetly on the rear pastedown. Bookseller Inventory # 72600

Item Description: 1720. 8vo., pp. [16], 381, [1], with an engraved frontispiece portrait of James Butler, first Duke of Ormond after Godfrey Kneller; M5-8 crinkled at upper inner margin, else a fine copy in a contemporary presentation binding of panelled red morocco, gilt, with floriate tools at the corners and clustered ornaments along the sides, spine elaborately gilt, black morocco label, gilt doublures, gilt edges; spine a little sunned and with small repairs at head and foot; preserved in a cloth box; bookplates of the Earl of Ormonde (late eighteenth-century, printed in sepia), and of a modern collector.First edition, a large paper copy in a presentation binding, from the family library of the Dukes of Ormond, the source of the manuscript from which it was published. Unlike his monumental history of the English Civil War Clarendon's History of the Rebellion and civil Wars in Ireland remained unpublished in his lifetime. Less a straight history than a spirited defence of the conduct in Ireland of James Butler, first Duke of Ormond (1610-1688), Clarendon's close friend and political ally, it was apparently written in Cologne c. 1652 while both were in exile, and with the Duke's assistance. Several contemporary manuscripts are known, but the one from which this edition was published (a copy with an autograph motto, now Clarendon MS 121 [C] in the Bodleian) came from 'His Grace the Duke of Ormonds papers'. The Ormond papers at Kilkenny Castle were subsequently given to the historian Thomas Carte in 1728 by the first Duke's grandson Charles Butler, Earl of Arran. Use of the manuscript was it seems repaid with this handsome copy of the printed text.By 1720, the staunchly Jacobite second Duke of Ormond (1665-1745), the other grandson of the first Duke, was himself in exile – having served twice as Lord Lieutenant of Ireland he was stripped of his titles after the accession of George I and impeached for high treason in 1715. He fled to the Continent, living first in France then settling in Spain until 1732 were he led several failed attempts at a Jacobite restoration. The History, with its generous praise of Ormond and its commiseration with his misfortunes, must have have been read as an attempt to recuperate the family from charges of disloyalty, and was certainly contentious enough that attempts were made to obstruct its distribution in Ireland. Whether this copy was owned by the second Duke in exile, or by his brother Charles, it certainly found its way to the Butler seat at Kilkenny Castle, from which library it was sold in 1935.The Dublin edition dated '1719-20' must in fact post-date the present, asserting as it does its superiority over the London edition; it does not include the Preface printed here, a reassertion of the brilliance and unjust punishment of the first Duke of Ormond, or the Appendix 'of the several Massacres and Murthers committed by the Irish, since the 23d of October, 1641'.
