2V Edmund Burke AN ACCOUNT OF THE EUROPEAN SETTLEMENTS IN AMERICA 1777 Antique History Fold-Out Frontispiece Maps
Estimate: $70 - $200
Title: An Account of the European Settlements in America in Six Parts
Author: Edmund Burke - Edmund Burke PC was an Irish statesman, author, orator, political theorist and philosopher who, after moving to England, served for many years in the House of Commons of Great Britain as a member of the Whig party.
He is mainly remembered for his support of the cause of the American Revolutionaries, and for his later opposition to the French Revolution. The latter led to his becoming the leading figure within the conservative faction of the Whig party, which he dubbed the "Old Whigs", in opposition to the pro-French Revolution "New Whigs," led by Charles James Fox.
Burke was praised by both conservatives and liberals in the 19th century. Since the 20th century, he has generally been viewed as the philosophical founder of modern conservatism, as well as a representative of classical liberalism.
