Beschreibung:

This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Magna Carta is arguably the most famous document in world history. 2015 marks its 800th anniversary. Yet, until relatively recently, it was unknown how many versions of the document survive, the means by which they were distributed, or the relationship between the charter of 1215 and Magna Carta as it was transmitted in subsequent issues. From Oxford to London, and from Washington to Canberra, more than thirty Magna Cartas are displayed in this book, each of them claiming to be an 'original' version of the charter granted by King John or reissued by his son or grandson. How did this situation arise? Precisely how many original Magna Cartas are there, and in which particular archives can they be seen? Were they written by the same or by many different scribes? How were they broadcast to the people at large? What difference is there between their appearance or their texts? Drawing on recent extensive archival research, this book looks at the publication and survival of Magna Carta. It also tells the story of how a peace treaty between a group of barons and a medieval English king became one of the chief cornerstones of civil liberties, informing universal ideas of liberty and justice across the centuries.

Inhaltsangabe: Magna Carta is arguably the most famous document in the world. Although it?s unclear how many versions survive, more than thirty documents claim to be ?originals? of the ?Great Charter.? Can this be? How many surviving Magna Cartas are there, and in which archives can they be seen? What are the important differences among them in appearance and text?
           
Published on the occasion of the eight hundredth anniversary of Magna Carta, this lavishly illustrated volume draws on recent archival research undertaken by the Arts and Humanities Research Council?s Magna Carta project. The book reproduces full-color photographs of more than thirty Magna Cartas from around the world, seeking out the originals, as well as some charters not recorded in any of the surviving charter rolls. Taking readers through the story of the charter?s publication in 1215 as part of an agreement between a group of feudal barons and the English king, the book describes how the document was distributed and broadcast to the people. Throughout its rise to one of the most important cornerstones of civil liberties, subsequent versions of Magna Carta also included curious changes, and the book places these changes within historical context.
           
A beautifully illustrated guide to the publication and long legacy of this document that led to the rule of constitutional law today, Magna Carta: Making and Legacy, written by one of the world?s foremost experts, will be an indispensable resource for those looking to learn more about the charter.

Inhaltsangabe: Magna Carta is the most famous document in English history. And yet its survival is purely accidental. King John, who negotiated the document with his rebellious barons, had no intention of honouring its contents. Annulled by the pope within weeks of being issued, it was destined to oblivion. But with the sudden death of John, all of this changed. Magna Carta was reissued by the regents of the boy King Henry III as an apology for past misrule and as a promise of future good government. It was reissued on successive occasions and repeatedly cited in legal cases in the following centuries. Later, it played a part in conflicts such as the English Civil War and the American Revolutionary War. Echoes of Magna Carta are to be found in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. It continues to be cited today as a touchstone of fundamental universal freedoms. 

This book tells the story of the birth and development of Magna Carta from its origins to the modern day. It also reproduces and describes, for the very first time, every surviving copy of the Great Charter, as well as related charters of the period, including various new discoveries. It addresses the previously unanswered question of how the charter was published and disseminated to the shires of England and includes a chapter on the charter's scribes and sealing, supplying a truly unique insight into both the creation and afterlife of the most fundamental legal document in British history.
