1 Grierson, Edward The Fatal Inheritance - Phillip II and the Spanish Netherlands
London Victor Gollancz 1969 0575003383 / 9780575003385 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Good 
A Fine unmarked copy with Good+ dustjacket which has wear to edges. An historical account of Phillip II and the revolt of the Spanish Netherlands. In 1556 Phillip II ascended the throne of Spain and inherited more power, more land and more wealth than any other man in history, but among his vast possessions were the rebellious provinces of the Netherlands, a legacy that was to drain the riches and hasten the decline of Spain's imperial grandeur. For over 40 years of almost continuous conflict, Phillip sought to suppress, from his cell like cabinet in the Escorial, the turbulent religious and political ideologies that were to wreak unimagined havoc upon the Catholic Europe of his fanatic vision. **** NOT EX LIB **** **** NOT BOOK CLUB ****
