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

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.

John Bunyan at Bedford Gaol.

John Bunyan was born at Elstow, near Bedford, in 1628. His parents were poor, and he received the merest rudiments of education. As a youth he became notorious for his profanity, but his vigorous nature underwent a great change, and after a severe mental struggle which he has described, he became connected with the Baptist Church at Bedford in his [...] [more...] [$]
