Helen Charlotte Foxcroft (1865-1950) was a renowned British historian and literary editor. In this book, which was first published in 1946, Foxcroft provides a concise biography of the statesman and writer Sir George Savile, 1st Marquis of Halifax, also known as 'The Trimmer'. The text condenses and updates material taken from an earlier two-volume work, The Life and Letters of Sir George Savile (1898). This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the life of Savile and British history.
