HISTORY OF THE REIGN OF PHILIP THE SECOND, KING OF SPAIN.

Prescott William H

Boston: Phillips, Sampson and Company, 1855, 1858. 3 volumes. Scarce First Edition.

An honest set, very usable and very readable. SCARCE FIRST EDITION SET COMPLETE IN ORIGINAL CLOTH WITH THE THIRD VOLUME ISSUED THREE YEARS AFTER THE FIRST TWO. William Prescott was known as one of the United States’ foremost historians. At the time that Prescott undertook this project, no English speaking historians had explored Spanish history using Spanish sources. With the increasing liberalization of the government at the time of his writing, he was able to take full advantage of primary sources that had been previously inaccessible to scholars. Additionally, he drew upon literary, political and traditional historical sources to give a more complex--and ultimately more complete--interpretation of the history at the time. Interestingly, Prescott had lost his sight at the beginning of this project and was thus forced to rely on a reader for all of his research.
