Read full description of the books The Expansion of Elizabethan England:

The adventurers and merchants (as well as the poets and playwrights) of the Elizabethan age are legendary. This work by the eminent historian A. L. Rowse argues that, under Elizabeth I, England began its expansion and eventual enormous impact upon the world. In this era, England amplifed its ideas and influence on international affairs and it also expanded physically into Cornwall and Ireland, made first contact with Russia and the Canadian North, and opened trade with India and the Far East. This new edition includes an introduction by Michael Portillo.

Read information about the author

Ebook The Expansion of Elizabethan England read Online! Alfred Leslie Rowse, CH FBA, known professionally as A. L. Rowse and to his friends and family as Leslie, was a prolific Cornish historian. He is perhaps best known for his poetry about Cornwall and his work on Elizabethan England. He was also a Shakespearean scholar and biographer. He developed a widespread reputation for irascibility and intellectual arrogance.

One of Rowse's great enthusiasms was collecting books, and he owned many first editions, many of them bearing his acerbic annotations. For example, his copy of the January 1924 edition of The Adelphi magazine edited by John Middleton Murry bears a pencilled note after Murry's poem In Memory of Katherine Mansfield: 'Sentimental gush on the part of JMM. And a bad poem. A.L.R.'

Upon his death in 1997 he bequeathed his book collection to the University of Exeter, and his personal archive of manuscripts, diaries, and correspondence. In 1998 the University Librarian selected about sixty books from Rowse’s own working library and a complete set of his published books. The Royal Institution of Cornwall selected some of the remaining books, and the rest were sold to dealers.
