Norman Britain - Henry Loyn and Alan Sorrell

£19.99

Product description

"The date of the Norman Conquest of 1066 is the date that everyone knows. This book tells, and shows in Alan Sorrell's brilliant reconstruction drawings, what happened after 1066 when a successful invader brought a new language and new ways into Britain, built stone castles and cathedrals, installed Norman barons and bishops in them, and assessed the wealth of the new kingdom in Domesday Book. Henry Loyn's text makes this distant, turbulent period real and vivid for us, from the battle of Hastings, which begins it, to the Magna Carta at its end."

1966 edition in first class condition. Very slight foxing to page edges only. Pages free of any markings. Binding tight and firm. Dust jacket has had some sympathetic repair where it has small tears to the top spine area and back fold over. Small inscription in ball point inside front board but under dust jacket. Green cloth boards with Gold Lettering in near perfect condition.
