by

Publisher: George Newnes
Number of pages: 183

Description:
The story about the dramatic development of the British dominions, east, west and south, from the time of Henry VII. to that of Edvard VII. This is not intended as a textbook, but should rather be regarded as a swiftly moving panorama to particular points in which one may hope at some future time to return for closer acquaintance.
