Available in Stock
This volume spans the period from the death of Queen Anne in 1714 to the outbreak of the French Revolution in 1789. Beginning with George I, the book provides 190 concise biographical essays on eminent personalities – royalty, politicians, churchmen, military leaders, men of letters, artists and scientists – arranged in roughly chronological order and forming a composite portrait of the age. Slightly off-mint.
