Expert:  Dustin replied 6 months ago.
If you have time machine setup and running, then start time machine and then restore this file ~/Library/Safari/History.plist That will do the trick!

Since your reply came in an hour and a half later, it caught me while I was on my afternoon break. Ive just returned. If you dont have any backups, or t ime machine turned on. Then theres no way to restore the history. As you have no backups of it to restore. The only hope wed have is if you had similar history stored on your ipad, iphone, or in another browser on your mac, such as firefox or chrome. I wish I had better news for you, but those are the facts we have to deal with, unfortunately. Dustin S
