A Voyce from the Watch Tower
Offices of the Royal Historical Society, University College London, 1978 - Politicians - 370 pages
When Charles II was restored to the English throne in 1660, the regicide Edmund Ludlow fled to Switzerland; there, in exile, he composed a manuscript narrative which was used, after his death, as the basis for The Memoirs of Edmund Ludlow' a book which has become one of the best-known sources of the Civil War and Interregnum. Only a part of Ludlow's actual manuscript has survived, and only a part of what survives is reproduced here; it shows particularly the points where Ludlow's manuscript differs from the edited and published Memoirs'. Complete with a substantial introduction and index.
