This is an auction for THE OXFORD COMPANION TO BRITISH HISTORY, edited by John Cannon. review:

"In The Oxford Companion to British History readers have a comprehensive and authoritative perspective into all the idiosyncrasies and nuances that make British history so uniquely British. Featuring 4000 A-Z entries written by 120 leading political, social, economic, and military scholars, it offers a wealth of information on British history, from the arrival of Julius Caesar on British shores in 55 BC to John Major's ill-fated back to basics initiative in the 1990s. Readers can explore this rich 2000-year history with insightful and meticulous descriptions of every important person, place, date, and movement, including the political legacies of the Magna Carta and the Gunpowder Plot, the reigns of such monarchs as Henry VIII and Queen Victoria, the social movements of the Luddites and the Parlimentarians, cultural and artistic phenomena like Romanticism and neo-classical architecture, and the scientific achievements of Newton and Darwin. In addition, general interest articles on topics like the monarchy and the Second World War are interspersed with more esoteric subjects like Ida, the sixth century king of Bernicia, to create a complete reference of British history. Designed for ease of use, the Companion offers ample cross-referencing between essay-length articles and short, quick-reference entries, supported by 12 detailed maps and an exemplary general index."
