Excerpt

The memoirs, lectures and papers collected in this volume reflect some of the influences which have given life and direction to historical activities, particularly in England, during the last sixty or seventy years. I have felt no desire to make them the basis of a "study," still less to give them an autobiographical setting. They speak for themselves. Their value would have been impaired if I had tried to bring them up-to-date. I have made a few changes in them, but have not altered their character.

References to the originals are given in footnotes to the various articles. I thank those who have allowed me to reprint them, the Council of the British Academy, the Council of the Royal Historical Society, the Director of the Institute of Historical Research, the University of Louvain, the delegates of the Clarendon Press, the Editors and Publishers of the English Historical Review, the Editors and Editorial Board of History, the Editors of the Cambridge Historical Journal, the Economic History Review, the Oxford Magazine, the Times, and History Today. I am also indebted to the house of John Murray for permission to reprint some pages about Leopold Delisle from a joint article which appeared anonymously in the Quarterly Review in 1911, and to the Editor of the Manchester Guardian for permission to reprint an article, also anonymous, from its issue of 12 March, 1921.
