Summary

  • The first History of Portugal was begun at Coimbra and completed after the author's return to England; it was finally published in 1947, and was awarded the Camoes Prize in the following year. At that time, no history of Portugal had appeared in English for about half a century, though much important historical investigation had been carried out by Portuguese and other scholars, and in England especially by Professor Edgar Prestage, who kindly read the author's text and offered a number of suggestions.
