Beschreibung:

The following Historical Documents, written in the Vernacular Language in the Reign of King Edward the Fourth, by eyewitnesses of the transactions they describe, are now first presented to the reader, freed from the repulsive and uncouth orthography of that period. It is acknowledged by all writers of English History, "that our Kingdom has fewer authentic records of the transactions, during the reigns of Henry VI. Edward IV. and Richard III., than of many earlier periods," and that those we have "are confused, mutilated and disjointed. They, who wrote History in those times, had no talents for the task; and there was a ferocity abroad among the partizans of both the rival houses, which prevented many from even assembling the materials of History."The introduction of the art of printing, by the facility it afforded to multiply the great works of the Classic ages, rendered them available to all.
