Catalogue Note

Sir Bulstrode Whitelocke (1605-1675) was an English writer, lawyer and Lord Keeper of the Great Seal of England who often acted as an advisor to Oliver Cromwell. These two volumes follow the years in which Whitelocke was despatched to Sweden to conclude a treaty of alliance between Cromwell and Christina, Queen of Sweden.
