New York: Harper, 1856. hardcover. 3 volumes, thick large 8vo, original brown blind stamped cloth (lightly worn), slipcase. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1856. Very good.
A work of wide acclaim, which was translated into four languages and ran through many editions, despite the author's lack of training in historical research. "It is a picturesque, dramatic narrative of a striking series of events, gathering around a group of clearly marked personalities, and is suffused with a warm glow of love of political and religious liberty." -DAB.
