Originally published in 1938, this book contains an account of Sir William Trumbull's two years as extraordinary envoy to France during the reign of James II. Clark draws heavily on Trumbull's accounts and letters to create a detailed picture of his active working life in France, occasionally against the interests of his monarch in defence of French Protestants. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Stuart diplomacy and the history of Anglo-French relations.
