Our country is now taking the road by which it will pass to destruction, to wit: by consolidation of power first, and then corruption, its necessary consequence. — Thomas Jefferson

RICHARD III OF ENGLAND

Stories from English History

Authors: Alfred J. Church
Publisher: McMillan & Co., New York
Dates: 1895–1896

This three volume collection of famous stories from English History is intended to provide the intermediate student with a moderately detailed version of some of the more famous episodes in English history. It is not a comprehensive history, in that much is left out, and the stories are not necessarily related in a continuous narrative, but each, taken on its own, is entertaining and informative. The History of England is broken into three periods as follows: Vol I: From Julius Caesar to the Black Prince (54 B.C. to 1360 A.D.); Vol II: From Richard II to Charles I (1360 to 1649); Vol III: From the Lord Protector to Queen Victoria (1649 to 1900).
