The Dividing Line Histories of William Byrd II of Westover (Published by the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture and the University of North Carolina Press)Hardcover. What you find in this work is the creation of the southern identity and the toil with which these men worked to create their new homes. It is a little bit hard to read because it is older english, but it is a very good view of what it took for these men to succeed in their endeavors.

Published by the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture and the University of North Carolina Press. The Secret History of the Line was written for private circulation, offering tales of scandalous behavior and political misconduct, peppered with rakish humor and personal satire.

Chapel Hill: Published by University of North Carolina Press for the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture, 2013. Chroniclers of early Virginia have long valued the writings of William Byrd II. Easily quotable, the master of Westover seemed omnipresent in the early eighteenth century. Trained in the law at Middle Temple and in trade at Rotterdam and London, Byrd spent approximately thirty of his seventy years in England.

The History of the Dividing Line, continually revised by Byrd for decades .

Indeed, a discussion of the proposal on the part of Byrd, Fitz- William, and Dandridge almost resulted in a broil. As the History of the Dividing Line is twice the length of The Secret History, it is logical to believe that the latter was the first to be composed and that as the title indicates, it was intended only for a select few, and that the History of the Dividing Line was written at a later date for a wider audience.

The History of the Dividing Line betwixt Virginia and North Carolina Run in the Year of Our Lord 1728

Published by: University of North Carolina Press. The History of the Dividing Line betwixt Virginia and North Carolina Run in the Year of Our Lord 1728. Byrd’s Secret History of the Line blends seemingly incongruous elements: accurate transcriptions of official letters, grave reflections on current events, comic anecdotes, scandalous revelations, and a pervasively libertine tone. Still, a degree of seriousness may be discerned in Byrd’s approach, despite all the levity, ribaldry, and personal satire. The Secret History conceals its agenda within a bawdy, picaresque, satirical narrative.

The Secret History of the Line was written for private circulation, offering tales of scandalous behavior and political misconduct, peppered with rakish humor and personal satire. Byrd enriched his narratives with material appropriated from earlier authors, many of whose works were in his library-the most extensive in the American colonies.

After his 1728 Virginia-North Carolina boundary expedition, Virginia planter and politician William Byrd II composed two very different accounts of his adventures. The Secret History of the Line was written for private circulation, offering tales of scandalous behavior and political misconduct, peppered with rakish humor and personal satire. The History of the Dividing Line, continually revised by Byrd for decades after the expedition, was intended for the London literary market, though not published in his lifetime. Collating all extant manuscripts, Kevin Joel Berland's landmark scholarly edition of these two histories provides wide-ranging historical and cultural contexts for both, helping to recreate the social and intellectual ethos of Byrd and his time. Byrd enriched his narratives with material appropriated from earlier authors, many of whose works were in his library--the most extensive in the American colonies. Berland identifies for the first time many of Byrd's sources and raises the question: how reliable are histories that build silently upon antecedent texts and present borrowed material as firsthand testimony? In his analysis, Berland demonstrates the need for a new category to assess early modern history writing: the hybrid, accretional narrative.
