Fair. Oxford: Basil Blackwell, 1949. Paperback in fair/acceptable condition. 195 pages, translated into English by Michael Maclagan. Moderate shelfwear, some discoloration to cover. Spine is creased, though binding remains sound and sturdy. Occasional underlining.
Good. 16mo-over 5¾"-6¾" tall. No date. "Practically the only authority on the history of England from the Saxon invasion to the year 732." Front hinge is beginning to crack otherwise a tidy copy. Part of the Temple Classics series.
Having read most of the Everyman collection, it is enjoyable to go back and read some of the 1000 from this collection of the early 1900s. Finding a new world in one of these books is always interesting, but I can see why the editors of the new Everyman series have not included this one.
It is flat. It covers a relatively short historical period and rattles off a succession of English kings and princes as they colorlessly annialate one another. I was hoping for a perspective on miricles and religious views of this time, but this also was very bland and repetive.
My conclusion would be this happens to be a documents recovered from early England that was saved by the church for the sake of the topic rather than value in the materials. Perhaps this would be interesting to a scholar of the period, but if you are looking for an interesting read, I would not recommend it.
