Narcissus Luttrell (1657-1732) was a civil servant and book collector, best remembered for the detailed record he kept of the political and diplomatic events of the late seventeenth century. After attending St Johns College, Cambridge, Luttrell was called to the Bar in 1680. He served as Justice of the Peace for Middlesex between 1693 and 1723 and was twice elected to the House of Commons. These volumes, first published in 1857, contain Luttrell's detailed diary. Arranged by month, this work provides a rich and valuable account of events between 1678 and 1714, including the political turmoil that led to the flight of James II and the accession of William and Mary. Volume 4 covers the years 1696-1700, describing in detail political debates in the House of Commons, political reactions to the Treaty of Ryswick of 1697 and descriptions of trials at the Old Bailey in London throughout this period.
