This book has obviously been studied critically by an owner, probably by Ms. Richards. Hopefully it was also loved. I think Macaulay kind of liked Hampden. His essay was a more of a personal history made interesting. The book included Lytton's essay on Falkland which was much more of a discussion of the time than a sketch of Falkland himself. It was, however, really interesting and a thoughtful presentation of what went on pre-Cromwell.

Interesting reading. It includes, at the back, some excerpts from Macaulay's review of Robert Southey's book on Sir Thomas More, of which he is scathing. Also included is a Commentary by editor Williams in which he endeavours to place Macaulay high in the pantheon of English writers.

This little book contains six of Macaulay's Lays of Ancient Rome. I had forgotten how enjoyable they are to read. Editor Roberts followed them with commentaries on the life of Macaulay and his poetic presentation. The book concludes with Macaulay's Essay on the Lays and a prose presentation of some of the stories by Livy. Back in the 1920s, et seq, English teachers must have praised the publishers for devising the Kings Treasuries as useful teaching materials. They are still delightful.
