Excerpt from The Constitutional History of England From the Accession of Henry VII to the Death of George II, Vol. 1 of 3

The origin and progress of the English constitution, down to the extinction of tho house of Plantagenet, formed a considerable portion of a work published by mo some years since, on the history, and especially the laws and institutions, of Europe during the period of tho middle ages. It had been my first intention to have prosecuted that undertaking in a general continuation; and when experience taught me to abandon a scheme projected early in life with very inadequate views of its magnitude, I still determined to carry forward the constitutional history of my own country, as both tho most important to ourselves, and, in many respects, the most congenial to my own studies and habits of mind.

The title which I have adopted appears to exclude all matter not referrible to tho state of government, or what is loosely denominated tho constitution. I have, therefore, generally abstained from mentioning, except cursorily, either military or political transactions, which do not seem to bear on this primary subject. It must, however, be evident that the constitutional and general history of England, at some periods, nearly coincide, and I presume that a few occasional deviations of this nature will not be deemed unpardonable, especially whore they tend, at least indirectly, to illustrate the main topic of inquiry.

Book Description Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Excerpt from The Constitutional History of England From the Accession of Henry VII to the Death of George II, Vol. 1 of 3 In terminating the Constitutional History of England at the accession of George III. I have been in?uenced by unwillingness to excite the prejudices of modern politics, especially those connected with personal cha racter, which extend back through at least a large portion of that reign. It 18 indeed vain to expect that any com prehensive account of the two preceding centuries can be given without risking the disapprobation of those parties, religious or political, which originated during that period; but as I shall hardly incur the imputation of being the blind zealot of any of these, I have little to fear, in this respect, from the dispassionate' public, whose favour, both' in this country and on the con tinent, has been bestowed on my former work, with a 'liberality less due to any literary merit it may possess than to a regard for truth, which will, I trust, be found equally characteristic of the present.
