2nd Edition. From the introduction: “The period of English History of which this book treats is sometimes known as the Classical or Augustan Age. This designation refers especially to the character of its literature, to its adoption of classical models for its own style of expression; but it will bear a wider signification. An attempt will be made in the following pages to look at this period from the biographical point of view, by taking several outstanding groups of statesmen and politicians and certain other characteristic types.”
