Summary: This 150 microfiche (8 volume) collection "renders a faithful account of several traverses of state and of the most important passages in debate between the advocates for prerogative and liberty in early Stuart England." Rushworth hoped to present the unbiased causes and consequences of the Civil War and gather together information which would separate truth from falsehood. Included are transactions in parliamentary debates, consultations between both houses, resolutions of parliament, and some of the laws which resulted from those debates and consultations. Volumes 1 through 7 are chronological and volume 8 is concerned primarily with the tryal of Thomas, Earl of Strafford...upon an impeachment of high treason by the Commons assembled in Parliament..begun the 22 of March 1640 and continued...until the 10th of May 1641.
