Historiographer royal to Charles II, and author of many historical works, it is nonetheless this work upon which his 'enduring title to literary fame rests' (CHEL). Written during his imprisonment in the 'Fleet' in the 1640s, it is an engaging, subtle and largely fictitious account of the political and social conditions of the day.

Condition Report: Rebacked retaining original boards; title page a little browned, yet a very good copy overall.
