A Plain and Short History of England for Children

£40.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

This is a beautiful 1845 edition of A Plain and Short History of England for Children published by Francis and John Rivington.

The book is set out in letters from a father to his son with a set of questions at the end of each letter.

Considering its age, the book is in good condition. Its front cover is very loose but still attached to the rest of the book. The spine shows major signs of scuffing as well as bumping to its corners.

As for the interior, the binding is very loose. The inside cover does have the previous owner's name in it. One page at the back of the book has been torn out.

Overall, despite its obvious signs of wear, this is a lovely book from the early 1800s that collectors will delight at.
