1892 School Atlas of English History

Categories: Atlases & Maps
Written By: John

It may seem rather monomaniacal to scan so many maps and battle plans, especially as they are not in and of themselves especially significant or noteworthy.  I like this old school atlas, though, and although they plates may be simplistic, I enjoy the quick overview of 1500 years of English history provided by the set as a whole.

There is no text at all in this book other than a 2 page preface and a list of maps and plans.  The plates are printed single sided, so the quality is very good and there is no bleeding or show-through from other maps.  Flip through the pages, and you get a sense of the ebb and flow of English and British power and empire up until the end of the Victorian era.

I have placed some representative images below, all linked to the GALLERY.  The full list is viewable there.   Complete title list is at bottom of this post.
