Description - Sir Walter Ralegh (Dodo Press) by W Stebbing
William Stebbing (1832-1926) was the British author of: Analysis of Mr. Mill's System of Logic (1875), Sir Walter Ralegh (1891) and Some Verdicts of History Reviewed. He was formerly fellow of Worcester College, Oxford. "Students of Ralegh's career cannot complain of a dearth of materials. For thirty-seven years he lived in the full glare of publicity. The social and political literature of more than a generation abounds in allusions to him. He appears and reappears continually in the correspondence of Burleigh, Robert Cecil, Christopher Hatton, Essex, Anthony Bacon, Henry Sidney, Richard Boyle, Ralph Winwood, Dudley Carleton, George Carew, Henry Howard, and King James. His is a very familiar name in the Calendars of Domestic State Papers. It holds its place in the archives of Venice and Simancas. No family muniment room can be explored without traces of him. Successive reports of the Historical Manuscripts Commission testify to the vigilance with which his doings were noted. No personage in two reigns was more a centre for anecdotes and fables. "
