Charles Knight (March 15, 1791-March 9, 1873) was an English publisher and author. In the eight hundred pages of this magnificent volume the reader will find a panoramic survey of English history from the prehistoric Druids and the creation of Stonehenge to the death of George II in 1760. 'Old England', originally published in 1844, then takes a fleeting glance in its last chapter at the Progress of Society for the Last Hundred Years. Condition: The binding is tight and firm with both covers and all pages securely attached. There is very little wear to the extremities. The dustjacket is fully intact with a small closed tear to the spine, slight rubbing and some fading to the top of the rear. Internally the pages are generally cleanalthough slightly age-tonedwith the occasional handling mark. Overall the volume is in very good condition indeed. Very Good. Dust Jacket Included.
