"Thomas Babington Macaulay's History of England from the Accession of James II was his masterwork and one of the great enduring classics of English historical writing. This volume contains the celebrated third chapter, which inherently contributed to the development of social history by presenting a highly contextually relevant extensive survey of English society in the year 1685, in terms of such things as population, cities, classes, and tastes." "Macaulay's approach to his subject, as John Burrow explains in his masterly introduction, was that of a definite advocate of "progress." He saw many real achievements in British and World history as resulting from policies pursued by Whig political interest."--Jacket

History of the conquest of Mexico, and History of the conquest of Peru by William Hickling Prescott( Book )

8 editions published between 1846 and 1992 in French and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The History of the Conquest of Mexico is William Prescott's epic account of Cortes's subjugation of the Aztec people, one that endures as a landmark work of nineteenth-century historiography and dramatic storytelling. Published in ten languages and republished at least two hundred times since its first publication in 1843, it presents a compelling view of the clash of civilizations that reverberates in Latin America to this day. The Conquest of Mexico, judged Prescott's biographer Harry Thurston Peck, is "one of the most brilliant examples which the English language possesses of literary art applied to historical narration," and literary critic Donald A. Ringe calls it "that rare type of book which satisfies fully the demands of both history and art.""--Jacket

Extrait : ""Diverses circonstances concoururent à me donner de très bonne heure ce qu'on appelle le goût de la mer . En premier lieu, ma mère me mit au monde au bruit d""une tempête. Telle était la violence du vent, la pluie battait les murailles et le toit avec une telle force, qu'on se préparait à transporter l'accouchée dans une partie plus solide de notre demeure, qui tremblait du grenier à la cave.""À PROPOS DES ÉDITIONS LIGARANLes éditions LIGARAN proposent des versions numériques de qualité de grands livres de la littérature classique mais également des livres rares en partenariat a
