Folio Society book, A History of England in the 18th Century, Macaulay

Folio Book Society

  • £7.50

"A History of England in the Eighteenth Century" was written by Thomas Babington Macaulay. It is a bit of a misnomer because the period starts in Chapter One with the Reign of Queen Anne, 1702-14 and ends with Chapter Fourteen with The Triumph of Reform, 1830-32. The book was published by the Folio Society in 1980.

This is a hardback book in a slip cover comprising 318 pages of text including an introduction by J P Kenyon and an index to the back.. The book covers are in red faux leather with a gilt-tooled pattern. r linen-bound in a golden brown with a tooled gilt diamond pattern to the covers. The slip cover is in a cream-coloured marble-effect strong card.

This is a relatively short history book covering a long period, and would be a good introduction to the history of the England for the adult seeking more general knowledge of the period, or for the student looking for an introduction. Whatever, the look and feel of a nicely bound illustrated book like this makes a read a little bit more special.

Condition is good, with no significant marks or scuffs to the book. The slip cover is in fair condition witht slight fading with age and minor scuffs.
