“It was fated that England should be the first of a series of Revolutions, which is not yet finished.”
With these cryptic words, Isaac Disraeli, father of Benjamin Earl of Beaconsfield, commenced his two-volume life of Charles I, published in 1851.
Isaac Disraeli’s “Life of Charles I” (1851) is a work of astonishing detail and insight, based on information obtained from the records of one Melchior de Salom, French envoy in England during that period.
