This is an auction for THE ENGLISH CIVIL WAR by C V Wedgwood.

Three Folio Society hardbacks in new condition, in their original slip case (which is not, however, in new condition).

From Wikipedia:

"Dame (Cicely) Veronica Wedgwood OM DBE (1910–1997) was an English historian who published under the name C. V. Wedgwood. She specialized in European history of the 16th and 17th centuries, including her The Thirty Years' War (1938) and biographies of Oliver Cromwell, William the Silent, and Cardinal Richelieu, as well as the authoritative Caroline trilogy,The Great Rebellion, which included The King’s Peace (1955), The King’s War (1958), and The Trial of Charles I (1964). She continued the story with The Trial of Charles I (1964). She was known to walk battlefields and experience the same weather and field conditions as the subjects of her histories, mindful that Cromwell had no military experience and most participants in the English Civil War were "talented amateurs" when it came to military manoeuvres. The subject was one of great controversy and rival schools of historical interpretation, but she held herself apart, "probably put off by the sheer scholasticism into which the treatment of the subject had degenerated, the rudeness with which academics treated each other over it, when she herself was always courteous and lady-like." Instead, "what was remarkable about Wedgwood's view of the Civil War was the way in which she depicted the sheer confusion of it all . . . "
