Modern Spain 1815–1898
Henry Butler Clarke (1863–1904) was a renowned expert on Spanish culture, who wrote numerous works on Spanish history and literature. Originally published in 1906 as part of the Cambridge Historical Series, this book appeared shortly after Butler Clarke's unfortunate early death from suicide, and an introductory memoir by his friend and colleague W. H. Hutton is contained at the beginning. The text provides a detailed examination of Spain's historical development, from the period of reaction following Ferdinand VII's restoration through to the Spanish–American War. A comprehensive bibliography is also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in nineteenth-century history and Spanish history.
