Reviews

Herendeen has rendered a notable service to scholarship with his new book, for he has furnished a life for a man we scarcely knew, even though his works are among the most distinctive scholarly productions of their time. As Camden restored antiquity to Britain, Herendeen has restored Camden to posterity. * ROYAL STUART JOURNAL *
This magisterial study will satisfy historians and literary critics who wish to deepen their understanding of Camden's achievements, as well as those who wish to see some cliches about the man and his work rethought. This book will be an invaluable resource for graduate students or others not yet familiar with Camden but who need to understand his significance for the period. Portions of this book should be standard reading for anyone studying the mass of historical activity and the dynamic historical imagination of early modern England. * SIXTEENTH CENTURY JOURNAL *
One of the most important books ever written about William Camden. There will be worthwhile debate about how Herendeen positions Camden in the early modern English historiographical landscape and we should all be grateful that he has taken the trouble to reveal Camden the man: a far more interesting figure than most of us (or I, at least) ever imagined. * SEVENTEENTH CENTURY NEWS *
A sympathetic and important study. This is a large and elegantly-written book that will provide future scholars of Camden and his environment with plenty of grist. * RENAISSANCE QUARTERLY *
Wyman Herendeen has done an excellent job in both disinterring the facts of Camden's career and constructing a portrait of him from the lives and culture of his intellectual circle. * THE LITERARY REVIEW *
Makes a major contribution to our understanding of the man and his intellectual world. * BRITISH ARCHAEOLOGY *
