The Reign of Queen Anne.

SKU: 11008

Two volumes. McCarthy [1830-1912] had a varied career, being an Irish Nationalist, journalist, historian, novelist, and Member of Parliament. His most famous book was probably A History of Our Own Times. In this history of Queen Anne, his pragmatic liberalism and understanding of politics combined with his love of both England and Ireland, and hopes for Irish freedom, add character to historical recounting. Top pages gilt. Light wear to cloth. Harper Brothers & Publishers. New York and London. 1902. Hb. USED. $25.00
