The history of the English Revokition^ its origin and consequences^
extcucls over a period of sixty-three years^—from the
accession of Charles I.^ in 1625, to the fall of James II., in
1688 ; and is naturally divided, by the great events which it
includes, into four periods. The first of these comprehends the
reign of Charles I., his conflict with the Long Parliament, his
defeat and death ; the second contains the liistory of the Commonwealth,
under the Long Parliament and Cromwell ; the third
is marked by the Ptcstoration of the Monarchy, after the brief
Protectorate of Eichard Cromwell ; and the fourth comprises the
reigns of Charles II. and James IL, and the final fall of the
royal race of Stuart.
Each of these four periods will form the subject of a special
work by M. Guizot. The first of these has already appeared;
the second is now published ; and the other two are in progress.
Together, the four works will constitute a complete pictm-e of the
most important epoch in our history.
With regard to the present Volume, I need say nothing,
except so far as my own share in it is concerned. I have
endeavoured to make as literal a translation as was compatible
with our English idiom; and, in all cases, I have carefully
verified the references, and given the ijmssima verla of the
authorities quoted by M. Guizot.
