Scope and content

First page labelled 'R. C. Trevelyan. History'; some references from classical authors below appear to have been added at a later date. Essays by Trevelyan on: the nature of history and English history up to the Wars of the Roses [1r-7v]; the Tudors and Stuarts [8r-15r], with pencil corrections and annotations by 'RS' [a teacher?].

Book later used by Trevelyan for notes on Greek philosophy [perhaps at university?] and, from the other end of the book in, on New Testament Greek and Sophocles' "Oedipus at Colonus".
