Product Description:

This unabridged reproduction of the 1905 edition provides children with an extensive, yet engaging history of England from Roman times through the reign of Queen Victoria. There are over a hundred chapters, although each one is only several pages long. Chapters usually focus on a monarch or a specific event (usually a battle) under the reign of the monarch. Although this 654-pg to me looks intimidating at first glance, the writing is lively and descriptive with lots of dialogue. Lifelike black-and-white full-page illustrations are scattered throughout the book. By H.E. Marshall, pb. - Jess

I've heard this publisher has done the best job of retaining the original charm of the book, while providing quality printing and reproduction of illustrations.

While looking for an author whose writing style was similar to VM Hillyer's I came across the works of HE Marshall "Our Island Story" is the history of England in a story format similar to "A Child's History of the World" Marshall takes you from the the story of Albion and Brutus to the story of Queen Victoria We are enjoying this book in our homeschool and are planning to follow it up with "This Country of Ours" for the next academic yearHE Marshall has also authored two other titles on the history of Great Britain "Our Empire Story" and "Scotland's Story"
