The House of Commons 1690-1715

£60.00

Product description

History of Parliament Trust and Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 2002.  Condition: As New, in original wrappers and delivery box.  Five volume set. 

"The History of Parliament is one of the great enduring monuments of twentieth-century historical research and one of the most comprehensive prosopographical projects ever undertaken. These five volumes, devoted to the years 1690-1715, provide a unique research tool comprising an introductory survey, detailed accounts of constituencies, and biographies of all members of the House of Commons during this period. The volumes detail a crucial stage in the evolution of Parliament, during which the constitutional position of the Commons was transformed by the revolution in public finance, leading to more frequent and longer sessions, and an increase in business. At the same time the electoral system was undergoing significant changes, in response to the frenetic political activity that characterised this 'first age of party'. Embodying exhaustive original research, these volumes stand as a unique contribution to the political and social history of Britain during the Augustan period."

Oxfam Bookshop Herne Hill

Situated between the London boroughs of Southwark and Lambeth, Herne Hill first appears on maps as farm and woodland in 1798. The bookshop is located opposite Brockwell Park, home to the beautifully restored Art Deco Lido, originally built in 1937, and well situated for a stroll to Dulwich picture gallery. Also notable are the unique Velodrome, dating back to 1891 and redesigned in 1948 for the Olympic Games, the grade two listed Half Moon Pub boasts a Boxing Gym run by former European and British Champion, Clinton McKenzie and the Carnegie Library, one of over two thousand public libraries built by the Scottish-American businessman and philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie. Prominent among Herne Hill's most famous former residents are John Ruskin, the influential Victorian socialist thinker, art critic, poet and conservationist.
