Indianapolis: Liberty Fund, 1983. — 592 p. — ISBN 0-86597-019-X (series); 0-8597-032-7 (Volume V)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.ContentsJames IIntroduction James's first transactions State of Europe Rosni's négociations Raleigh's conspiracy Hampton-court conference A Parliament Peace with SpainGunpowder conspiracy A parliament Truce between Spain and the United Provinces A parliament Death of the French King Arminianism State of IrelandDeath of Prince Henry Marriage of the Princess Elizabeth with the Palatine Rise of Somerset His marriage Overbury poisoned Fall of Somerset Rise of Buckingham Cautionary towns delivered Affairs of ScotlandSir Walter Raleigh's expedition His execution Insurrections in Bohemia Loss of the Palatinate Negociations with Spain A parliament Parties Fall of Bacon Rupture between the king and the commons Protestation of the commonsNegociations with regard to the marriage and the Palatinate Character of Buckingham Prince's journey to Spam Marriage treaty broken A parliament Return of Bristol Rupture with Spain Treaty with France Mansfeldfs expedition Death of the king His characterAppendix to the reign of James ICivil government of England during this period Ecclesiastical government Manners Finances Navy Commerce Manufactures Colonies Learning and artsCharles IA parliament at Westminster A parliament at Oxford Naval expedition against Spain Second parliament Impeachment of Buckingham Violent measures of the court War with France Expedition to the isle of RheThird parliament Petition oj right Prorogation Death of Buckingham New session of parliament Tonnage and poundage Arminianism Dissolution of the parliamentPeace with France Peace with Spain State of the court and ministry Character of the queen Strafford Laud Innovations in the church Irregular levies of money Severities in the star-chamber and high commission Ship money Trial of HambdenDiscontents in Scotland Introduction of the canons and liturgy A tumult at Edinburgh The covenant A general assembly Episcopacy abolished War A pacification Renewal of the war Fourth English parliament Dissolution Discontents in England Rout at Newburn Treaty at Rippon Great council of the peersMeeting of the long parliament Strafford and Laud impeached Finch and Windebank fly Great authority of the commons The bishops attacked Tonnage and poundage Triennial bill Strafford's trial Bill of attainder Execution oj Strafford High-commission and star-chamber abolished Kings journey to ScotlandSettlement of Scotland Conspiracy in Ireland Insurrection and massacre Meeting of the English parliament The remonstrance Reasons on both sides Impeachment of the bishops Accusation of the five members Tumults King leaves London King arrives in York Preparations for civil warCommencement of the civil war State of parties Battle of Edgehill Négociation at Oxford Victories of the royalists in the west Battle of Stratton Battle of Lansdown - Battle Of Roundway-down Death of Hambden Bristol taken Siege of Gloucester Battle of Newbury Actions in the north of England Solemn league and covenant Arming oа the Scots State of IrelandInvasion of the Scots Battle of Marston-moor Battle of Cropredy-bidge Essex's forces disarmed Second battle of Newbury Rise and character of the Independents Self-denying ordinance Fairfax, Cromwell Treaty of Uxbridge Execution of LaudMontrose's victories The new model of the army Battle of Naseby Surrender of Bristol The west conquered by Fairfax Defeat of Montrose Ecclesiastical affairs King goes to the Scots at Newark End of the war King delivered up by the ScotsMutiny of the army The king seized by Joyce The army march against the parliament The army subdue the parliament The king flies to the of Wight Second civil war Invasion from Scotland The treaty of Newport The civil war and invasion repressed The king seized again by the army The house purged The king's trial And execution And character
