The National and Domestic History of England (Vol 3) (page 1/2)

details...

Pictures and short extracts from The National and Domestic History of England Volume III (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.

Volume 1

Volume 2

Volume 3

I originally had a Volume 3 that was only a third of the thickness of volume 2; it turns out to have been from a slightly different edition that had lots of thin volumes instead of three fat ones. I now have all three volumes from the same edition, so some of the images are moving around to their proper places.
