Henry St John, 1st Viscount Bolingbroke (1678 1751) was a prominent English politician and political philosopher. Originally published in 1932, this book consists of numbers 6 8 from Bolingbroke's Letters on the Study and Use of History. The selected letters provide an account of the historical events leading up to the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713, justifying the Treaty whilst at the same time admitting to the inadequacy of some the terms. The text also contains an introduction by renowned political historian G. M. Trevelyan (1876 1962). This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Bolingbroke and European history."
