England 1870-1914 (The Oxford History Of England)

£25.00

Product description

First published in 1936, this now-classic volume spans a time of rapid and far-reaching change in England: from Gladstone's first ministry, through the great contest with Disraeli, the Home Rule debate, the establishment of the Labour movement, the Boer War, and the Liberal reforms of 1909-10, to the end of an era marked by the catastrophe of 1914. With stimulating analyses of social and economic developments as well as domestic and foreign policy, R. C. K. Ensor's account serves as a superb introduction to the period it covers and offers insight into the world of the 1930s in which it was written. This volume was reprinted in 1941 and is complete with its seven fold-out maps and original unclipped dustjacket. The jacket is very worn, ripped, discoloured and faded, particularly on the spine. The blue cloth binding is gilt-embossed on the spine and is holding. There is a small ink inscription on the flyleaf and a bookseller's sticker on the inside front cover. The first few pages are slightly foxed. The book block is intact, although the edges are dusty and yellowed.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
