The life of Mrs. Godolphin by John Evelyn( Book )

61 editions published between 1847 and 2013 in English and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Evelyn (1620-1706), a founder member of the Royal Society, was a horticulturalist and author, best remembered for his diaries. Throughout his prolific writings he exhibits a strong distaste for the corruption of life at court. The beautiful and pious Margaret Godolphin (1652-78), a courtier more than thirty years Evelyn's junior, with whom he struck up an intense friendship in 1672, was maid of honour in the household of Queen Catherine, wife of King Charles II. To Evelyn she represented the antithesis of the corruption he despised. Written as 'a record of her perfections' following her death in childbirth, this hagiographic biography reflects the extent of Evelyn's devotion. Left among his unrevised manuscripts, it was not published until 1847, nearly two centuries after its composition. Edited by the bishop and orator Samuel Wilberforce (1805-73), the work includes helpful notes and genealogical tables that elucidate the text

This criticism of the English character, written in the form of a translation from the French, prompted the anonymous animadversion "Gallus Castratus, An answer to a slanderous pamphlet called The character of England." Evelyn in turn replied in the third edition of A character of England in: "A letter in vindication of this character, against the sordid reproaches of Gallus Castratus": (p. [3-9]) cf. Dictionary of national biography; William Upcott, ed. The miscellaneous writings of John Evelyn
