Figgis (1866-1919) was an Anglican priest and monk and most well known as the principal editor of many of Lord Acton's writings.

A short appendix "King Richard the Third and the Reverend James Thompson". Previous owner's name on the front free end paper, the back free end paper is browned, the externals show mild shelf wear and with the cloth being quite faded and faded to a beige on the spine. Otherwise the book is clean with a solid binding.
