The National and Domestic History of England (Vol 1) (page 1/2)

details...

Pictures and short extracts from The National and Domestic History of England Volume I (A.D. 1399 – 1603), by William Hickman Smith Aubrey (1858 – 1916). The book is undated, but is probably 1878, since I found someone selling a copy with an inscription dated 1879.

In 2015 I bought the three-volume set from Bookends of Fowey in Cornwall, UK. Previously I had only Volume II and part of volume III.
