This book, "Calendar Of The Manuscripts Of The Most Hon. The Marquess Of Salisbury, Preserved At Hatfield House, Hertfordshire ; Part XV", is a historical record compiled by the Historical Manuscripts Commission and published by His Majesty's Stationery Office in 1930. In the present volume the general chronological description of the Cecil Manuscripts at Hatfield is resumed from the date (24 March, 1603) of Queen Elizabeth's death, at which it was broken off at the end of Part XII. The two following volumes have dealt with the supplementary and undated papers which were omitted in the preceding ones but can be reasonably assigned to a time before the reign of James I. The period here covered is one of little more than nine months to the end of the year 1603, according to our modern reckoning, but they were months of more than usual interest, fraught with the possibilities of many changes in the outlook of affairs both at home and abroad; a period of considerable uncertainty, although of great expectations, in too many cases doomed to disappointment. The important part that Sir Robert Cecil had played in the latter days of Elizabeth, either with or without her connivance, in preparing the way for the peaceful accession of James is well known. That it was recognised by the King and his contemporaries the papers in this volume amply prove. Fiurst Edition. Condition: Good with some tanning. No dust jacket. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting.
