Описание на книгата Откъс от книгата За автора

The History of England (sometimes referred to as The History of Great Britain) (1754–62) is David Hume's great historical work, written while he was serving as librarian to the Edinburgh Faculty of Advocates, and published in six volumes in 1754, 1756, 1759, and 1762. His History became a best-seller, finally giving him the financial independence he had long sought. (Both the British Library and the Cambridge University Library still list him as "David Hume, the historian." More a category of books than a single work, Hume's History spanned "from the invasion of Julius Caesar to the Revolution of 1688" and went through over 100 editions. Many considered it the standard history of England until Thomas Macaulay's The History of England from the Accession of James the Second.
