A.F. Pollard was a major force in establishing history as an academic subject in Britain. This book traces the evolution of a great empire, which has often conquered others, out of a little island which was often conquered itself.
by Walter Thornbury - Chatto & Windus, Piccadilly
This book deals less with the London of the ghost-stories, than with the London consecrated by manifold traditions -- a city every street of which teems with interesting associations: this London of the present haunted by the memories of the past.
by Edward Salmon - George Newnes
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.
by G. K. Chesterton - Chatto and Windus
This volume covers quickly, yet completely, the history of England from early Roman times to the time of the Great War, World War I. Gilbert Keith Chesterton is certainly one of the most entertaining, and important, authors in the English language.
