History of England from the fall of Wolsey to the death of Elizabeth by James Anthony Froude( Book )

178 editions published between 1850 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 1,840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Anthony Froude (1818-94), historian and disciple of Carlyle, published this twelve-volume history of the English Reformation between 1858 and 1870. The work is shaped by Froude's firm belief that the Reformation enabled the development of modernity and the rise of 'progressive intelligence' in England. His polemical stance was criticised by some historians, but his engaging narrative style and elegant prose made his work extremely popular with the general public, and the books were highly influential. The first six volumes consider the course of the Reformation from the break with Rome until the accession of Elizabeth I in 1558, and the remaining six recount the reign of Elizabeth I, ending with the defeat of the Spanish Armada. Volume 10 considers Elizabeth's role as head of the church, affairs in Scotland and Ireland, and the St Bartholomew's Eve massacre in France

91 editions published between 1855 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,074 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881) was one of the most influential authors of the nineteenth century. His satirical essays and perceptive historical biographies caused him to be regarded for much of the Victorian period as a literary genius and eminent social philosopher. These volumes, first published in 1884, form the second part of Carlyle's official biography, describing his life and literary work after his move to London in 1834. Carlyle's fame and scholarly reputation were firmly established during this period of his life. Written by his close friend James Anthony Froude (1818-1894), this candid and controversial biography describes in vivid detail the effect of Carlyle's fame on his literary work, and on his relationship with his wife and close friends. This revealing work broke traditional Victorian biographical conventions, and is considered a classic for its critical analysis of Carlyle's actions and character. Volume 1 covers the years 1834-1849

Reminiscences by Thomas Carlyle( Book )

36 editions published between 1881 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881) was one of the most influential authors of the nineteenth century, and his essays and historical biographies led to him being regarded for much of the Victorian period as a literary genius and eminent social philosopher. This two-volume work, published in 1881, is a collection of Carlyle's reminiscences, which were edited by his friend, the historian J. A. Froude (1818-94). In 1871, Carlyle had given Froude a collection of his own papers, including these sketches, and of those belonging to his deceased wife, Jane, to be edited and published after his death. Froude - who was simultaneously writing his two-part biography of Carlyle (also reissued in this series) - had them ready for publication a month after Carlyle's death on 5 February 1881. Volume 2 contains Carlyle's reminiscences about his wife, Jane, and about Scottish critic Lord Jeffrey

122 editions published between 1895 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,003 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: Antonio L̤pez de Santa Anna (1794#x13;1876) is one of the most famous, and infamous, figures in Mexican history. Six times the country#x19;s president, he is consistently depicted as a traitor, a turncoat, and a tyrant#x14;the exclusive cause of all of Mexico#x19;s misfortunes following the country#x19;s independence from Spain. He is also, as this biography makes clear, grossly misrepresented. Drawing on seventeen years of research into the politics of independent Mexico, Will Fowler provides a revised picture of Santa Anna#x19;s life, with new insights into his activities in his bailiwick of Veracruz and in his numerous military engagements. The Santa Anna who emerges from this book is an intelligent, dynamic, yet reluctant leader, ingeniously deceptive at times, courageous and patriotic at others. His extraordinary story is that of a middle-class provincial criollo, a high-ranking officer, an arbitrator, a dedicated landowner, and a political leader who tried to prosper personally and help his country develop at a time of severe and repeated crises, as the colony that was New Spain gave way to a young, troubled, besieged, and beleaguered Mexican nation. Deconstructing the myths surrounding Santa Anna#x19;s life, the book offers a fresh view of a critical chapter in Mexico#x19;s history
The English in the West Indies, or, The bow of Ulysses by James Anthony Froude( Book )

66 editions published between 1888 and 2010 in English and held by 924 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Anthony Froude was one of the foremost Victorian historians in England, though he was often controversial and opinionated, especially towards Catholicism. His biography of Carlyle in 1884, with his emphasis on Carlyle's weaknesses as well as his brilliance, caused lasting offence to many. He then began travelling in British colonies, which led to the publication of Oceana (1886) and The English in the West Indies (1888) which combined anecdotes and observations with Froude's opinions on the British Empire. The latter provoked many angry responses to his views on how the colonies should be governed. He favoured self-government, but feared that democracy would cause the British islands to go the same way as French Haiti, stating that black rule in Grenada would led to a rapid return to savagery. Apart from his political opinions, the book contains interesting and vivid descriptions of the islands and their inhabitants
Letters and memorials of Jane Welsh Carlyle by Jane Welsh Carlyle( Book )

40 editions published between 1883 and 2011 in English and held by 911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Widely recognised as one of the greatest female letter writers in English, Jane Welsh Carlyle (1801-1866) possessed a famous sense of wit and irony, which, together with her keen observational skills, made her an important literary figure in her own right. This three-volume set of her letters, published in 1883 and annotated throughout by her husband Thomas Carlyle, represents a fine example of the letter-writing genre. The publication of the letters made a significant contribution to a growing acceptance and critical recognition of this often dismissed literary form. In Volume 2 (from 1847 to 1859) the reader will find humorous observations of eminent figures of the time, such as Emerson and Ruskin, witness Jane's strong devotion to her mother and sympathise with her failing health. Her descriptions of everyday life will entertain and amuse, and will reveal a fascinating insight into the highs and lows of her marriage

The sixth volume begins with the death of Edward VI in 1553 and the dispute over the crown between Lady Jane Grey and Mary Tudor. It then follows Bloody Mary through her reign, until her death in 1558

Froude changed the title of this twelfth volume, having decided that the Armada marked the defeat of Catholicism in England, and the appropriate conclusion to his work
