Indianapolis: Liberty Fund, 1983. — 422 p. — ISBN 0-86597-019-X (series); 0-8597-030-0 (Volume IV)The History of England (1754–61) is David Hume's great work on the history of England, which he wrote in installments while he was librarian to the Faculty of Advocates in Edinburgh. It was published in six volumes in 1754, 1756, 1759, and 1761. The first publication of his History was greeted with outrage by all political factions, but it became a best-seller, finally giving him the financial independence he had long sought. Both the British Library and the Cambridge University Library, as well as Hume's own library, still list him as "David Hume, the historian." 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 in its day.ContentsElizabethQueen's popularity Re-establishment of the protestant rehgion A parliament Peace with France Dissgust between the queen and Mary, queen of Scots Scots affairs Reformation in Scotland Civil wars in Scotland Interposal of the queen in Scots affairs Settlement of Scotland French affairs Arrival of Mary in Scotland Bigotry of the Scotch Reformers Wise government of ElizabethState of Europe Civil wars of France Havre de Grace put in possession of the Enghsh A parliament Havre lost Scots affairs The queen of Scots marries the earl of Darnley Confederacy against the protestants Murder of Rizzio A parliament Murder of Darnley Queen of Scots marries Bothwel Insurrections in Scotland Imprisonment of Marv Mary flies into England Conferences at York and Hampton CourtCharacter of the puritans Duke of Norfolk's conspiracy Insurrection in the north Assassination of the earl of Murray A parliament Civil wars of France Affairs of the Low Countries New conspiracy of the duke of Norfolk Trial of Norfolk His execution Scots affairs French affairs Massacre of Paris French affatrs Civil wars of the Low Countries A parliamentScots affairs Spanish affairs Sir Francis Drake A parliament Negociations of marriage with the duke of Anjou Scots affairs Letter of queen Mary to Ehiabeth Conspiracies in England A parliament The ecclesiastical commission Affairs of the Low Countries Hostilities with SpainZeal of the cathohcs Babington's conspiracy Mary assents to the conspiracy The conspirators seized and executed Resolution to try the queen of Scots The commissioners prevail on her to submit to the trial The trial Sentence against Mary Interposition of king James Reasons for the execution of Mary The execution Mary’s character The queen's affected sorrow Drake destroys the Spanish fleet at Cadiz Philip projects the invasion of England The invincible Armada Preparations in England The Armada arrives in the channel Defeated A parliament Expedition against Portugal Scots affairsFrench affairs Murder of the duke of Guise Murder of Henry the third Progress of Henry the fourth Naval enterpriies against Spain A Parliament Henry the fourth embraces the catholic rteligion Scots affairs Naval enterprises A parliament Peace of Vervins The earl of EssexState of Ireland Tyrone's rebellion Essex sent over to Ireland His ill success Returns to England Is disgraced His intrigues His insurrection His trial and execution French affairs Mountjoy's success in Ireland Defeat of the Spaniards and Irish A parliament Tyrone's submisslon Queen's sickness And death And characterAppendixGovernment of England Revenues Commerce Military force Manners Learning
