The Life and Letters of Lord Macaulay, In Two Volumes

TREVELYAN, George Otto

Regular price $200.00 Sale

Trevelyan was once called "a first-rate writer who preferred to be a second- or third-rate statesman." He was, however, a brilliant historian, as indicated by this biography of his famous uncle, Macaulay. Trevelyan sought to follow many of the same hsitorical principles which Lord Macaulay incorporated into his history of England. But while Macaulay was accused of glamorizing history, Trevelyan created a very real portrait of his uncle.
