From the Publisher:

THE CHICAGO SUNDAY TRIBUNE has summed up the appeal of Dame Cicely Veronica Wedgwood (1910-97): ³Easily the most distinguished woman historian of our time, [she] is the dream of the history fan. A scholar of unimpeachable diligence and accuracy, she also possesses the double literary gift of lucid exposition and brilliant portrayal.² Originally published in 1964 (its English title was The Trial of Charles I), A Coffin for King Charles is her masterly account of one of the most dramatic moments in British history: the trial and execution of King Charles I in 1648.

Review:

³The finest account of the trial that has ever been written.² -- J. H. Plumb, THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
