xii + 290pp., original leather binding, spine and corners covered with modern fabric, back covered in plastic, hinges taped. Internally very good - worthy of rebinding. "Published in 1768, the work summarises the history of English liberty from the time of the first Britons to the Norman invasion. Implicit in this Whiggish perspective was a challenge to David Hume, whose History of England had put a relativist historiographical agenda at the forefront of the debate on the nature of British liberty." (Zachs, Oxford DNB)
