Pictures from “A Short History of the English People” by J. R. Green M.A., Macmillan, 1902. This book was first published in 1874, and was very successful. I have the illustrated edition, which was edited posthumously by his widow; this is a reissue of the 1892 edition as far as I can tell from the Impressions page. John Richard Green was an English historian (1837 – 1883). I also have England by the same author.
