The Social Circulation of the Past: English Historical Culture, 1500-1730
Oxford University Press, 2003 - 421 pàgines
Woolf details here the ways in which English men and women first became seriously aware of and interested in their own and the world's past. Previous works have focused exclusively on the writings of a small minority of historians, yet, through using a variety of manuscript and printed sources, this study examines the wider 'historical culture' within which historical and antiquarian studies could emerge.
