Book Description:

“Katherine O. Acheson has produced a valuable edition of the Memoir and Diary of Lady Anne Clifford, texts which offer an unparalleled insight into the literary education and interests, the fraught marital situation, the daily domestic life, the social activities, and the protracted legal struggles over inheritance of a remarkable young noblewoman in Jacobean England. Based on careful examination of the surviving manuscripts, this modernized edition supplies annotations identifying all the persons and events mentioned in the texts, illuminating the familial, social, and political networks within which and against which Clifford acted and wrote. A succinct introduction provides new information about Clifford’s life, and a cogent explanation of her complicated legal claims.” ― Barbara K. Lewalski, Harvard University
