'He traversed a great part of Persia. He had a good eye for detail and a great appetite for information His was one of the best seventeenth century travel narratives, and became immediately popular on publication.' The TimesWhen first published in 1928, Herbert's work enjoyed immediate success. Considerable interest was being taken in Persia at the time and a full account of the country was welcomed. The narrative is of considerable importance from an historical point of view, as it gives the only detailed account of the first English embassy to Persia. It also paints a graphic picture of the

The trial of Charles I : a contemporary account taken from the memoirs of Sir Thomas Herbert and John Rushworth by Thomas Herbert( )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A contemporary account taken from the memoirs of Sir Thomas Herbers and Hohn Rushworth. Taken from two main sources, John Rushworth's Historical Collection (circa 1659) and Sir Thomas Herbert's memoirs (circa 1678), this book will primarily be of interest to those who have a deep curiosity about this historic event, unprecedented in the history of European nations at that time. It chronicles-sometimes dramatically, sometimes poignantly-the king's imprisonment after his defeat in the civil war, the events and parliamentary debates leading up to the charges of high treason being brought against the king, and a virtual transcript of the trial itself, bringing to life the spirited arguments between Charles and the president of the court, Lord Bradshaw. We are witness to the king's last hours, his execution in Whitehall-preceded by his short speech to those around the black-draped scaffold-and so to the poignant scene of his funeral at Windsor Castle. Rushworth was a lawyer/historian and one-time clerk-assistant to the House of Commons, later secretary to General Lord Fairfax, and for a short time to Oliver Cromwell. Herbert was appointed by Parliament to attend the king as groom of the bedchamber during the king's captivity and served him faithfully to the end
