A history of England and the British Empire
by Arthur D. Innes
Publisher: The MacMillan Company 1913
This work is intended in the first place to appeal to the general reader who finds less than he requires in the books written expressly for the use of schools. But in the second place, it ought to be of service to advanced pupils and their teachers, as well as to university and other students who are taking up history for the purposes of examination, yet find the specialists' work somewhat outside their range.
