A History of Britain. Book VI, The Victorians and the Age of Empire

£45.00

Product description

This massively popular series, first released in 1937, tells the story of our islands in a straightforward, chronological narrative. Carter and Mears' writing is fast-paced, muscular and direct, and covers the matrix of British history including overseas events, the arts, religion and major social changes. Updated and revised by an expert hand, this series is being revived at a time when the failure of our schools to provide a connected, fact-based sense of the events that defined our nation, is being rightly and increasingly lamented by politicians, parents and the media. The series has been thoroughly revised and updated by David Evans, former Head of History at Eton College. Featured in The Sunday Telegraph , The Daily Mail and The Mail on Sunday. Volume VI focuses on expansion abroad during Victoria's reign, and the triumphs of science and industry that allowed Britain to maintain its position, established in the Georgian era, as the world's great economic power. Green cloth boards in very good condition. Spine mildly sunned. Corners slightly rubbed. Head and foot of spine mildly bumped. Very tight binding and sound hinges. Very small stain on front edge. Contents very clean and clear, with no marks, inscriptions or highlights. Contains 15 illustrations and 11 maps.
