Abstract:

This article extends arguments that were advanced in a work of 1978 by the same author, which showed that the Memoirs of the regicide Edmund Ludlow, a major source for the English civil wars, were a semi-forgery, based on, but transforming, an autobiographical manuscript by Ludlow. In the light of new evidence and of reassessment of the old, two claims made in 1978 are developed: that the reviser of the manuscript is likely to have been the deist and republican John Toland; and that the Memoirs were prepared, and need to be read, with an eye to the political circumstances of the later sixteen-nineties.
