Safari recently quit displaying my web browsing history. However, it appears to be storing at least part of my history. (See Photo 1 and Photo 2).
Safari preferences specify keeping history for 365 days.
What might I try to fix this?

Yes, I have the same issue. It started when I upgraded to Sierra, I got Safari 10.0.3. Rather than reinstall all of macOS, I'm waiting to see if this is a bug in syncing between Sierra and iOS through iCloud.
Here are details of my thinking.
Frequently Visited in Favorites isn't showing anything either.
I got a History.db of 61,6 MB in my ~/Library/Safari/ folder and I manage to see some iCloud macbook browsing history on my iPhone running iOS 10.3.1.
So I was having other problems with Safari. Since Apple implemented System Integrity Protection with El Capitan, users cannot simply reinstall Safari. Rather, one must reinstall the entire OS.
I chose a Time Machine backup that predated when problems began and reinstalled. The problems have ended. No more unexpected shutdowns of Safari and the history is being recorded.
