Description: This is the incredibly rare second volume of three-part series on British history. The book attempts to provide an authoritative but simple and picturesque introduction to the subject by concentrating on the most important events, and providing descriptions and explanations of their significance in a vivid and attractive way.
Illustrated with many excellent b&w maps and reproductions. Also includes a frontispiece featuring a superb b&w photograph of Henry VII's chapel in Westminster Abbey.
Pictorial orange cloth boards. Some marking and 'colouring in' on front (refer to image). Publisher's decorative logo on rear. Front end paper partially removed. The book is in remarkable condition for something which survived usage in a secondary school history classroom, and the Second World War! A few passages in the text have been lightly underlined in pencil, whilst the timeline (or 'Time Chart', as it has been called here) has several entries underlined in black ink. Several pages are foxed, but all appear to have resisted tanning. Tight binding.Measures 19 cm × 12.5 cm (7.6″ × 5″). Large 12mo. 286 pp.
