The History of England from the Accession of James the Second The History of England from the Accession of James the Second (1848) is the full title of the five volume work by Lord Macaulay (1800--1859) more generally known as The History of England. It covers the period from 1685 to 1702, encompassing the reign of James II, the Glorious Revolution, the coregency of William and Mary, and up to William III's death. Macaulay's approach to writing the History was innovative for his period.
