The History Of The Reign Of King Henry VII by Francis Bacon
Although written some hundred years after the death of his subject, Bacon’s analysis of the life of his former monarch is both penetrating and insightful. Rather than simply list the facts of his reign, Bacon examines Henry VII’s motivations to create not only an important historical work, but also a key document in the development of political thought. The result is essential reading for anyone interested in history, politics or literature. Edited and with an introduction by Roger Lockyer.
