Title continues: "A period, perhaps, the most remarkable and interesting in the British History. Now First Published From the MSS of Robert Baillie, D. D. Principal of the University of Glasgow, Who was actively concerned in those transactions. With The Life of the Author, and a Glossary." Robert Baillie (1602-1662) was a historian and theologian of the Church of Scotland. Baillie's Letters and Journals represent a significant history of England and Scotland during the Civil War and remain important documents, particularly because of Baillie's minor role in events as well as for his engaging writing style.
