Excerpt from Macaulay's Lays of Ancient Rome, the Armada, Ivry, and the Battle of Naseby

A map of Etruria and Latium and parts adjacent and a map of early Rome have been provided, with the idea that it is well for the reader to associate a local habitation with the names that he encounters, and that maps are better than notes for this purpose. Places not to be found in the maps are referred to in the notes.

著者について (2017)

Thomas Babington Macaulay was born in Leicestershire, England on October 25, 1800. He was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge University. He became a lawyer, but continued to be interested in politics. He became a member of Parliament and rose to the peerage in 1857. Although he held a number of important cabinet posts, the effects of his sweeping educational reform, while in India, are his most enduring contribution to the Whig government. His main literary work was his multi-volume The History of England. He died on December 28, 1859.
