Summary

In his day, Hume was as famous for his history as his philosophy: quickly established as a classic, his masterpiece History of England was enormously popular, going through over one hundred editions. Most of the 41 articles contained in these volumes appear for the first time since their original publication, making it possible to assess the shifting attitudes about Hume's History during its first century of life.
