[picture: Front Cover]

Pictures and short extracts from The National and Domestic History of England Volume II (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. The engravings are mostly anonymous, and hence out of copyright; the author died more than 75 years ago, and so the text is out of copyright; any photographs were taken more than 50 years ago and are out of copyright. The status of signed engravings would depend on the artist, but I have not yet uploaded any such items. Check the individual image descriptions for more information.

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.

Three Gothic Arches

A frame, almost like a rood screen or a picture frame for a triptych, this cartouche of three arches provided three niches for soldiers in the illustration “Three knights from the 15th century.” The arches have gothic details suitable for the 1450s, and could be stone arches or medieval wooden cartici.

Free clip-art: Victorian border of twigs and leaves (simplified version)
